This report contains the papers presented in the 1970-1971 Environmental and Ecological Forum series, planned to provide an overview of the significant environmental, social, and economic aspects of electric power generation, more specifically, the pros and cons of nuclear power production. The Forum was organized as a public service to foster community understanding of environmental problems that increasingly tax society's capabilities for remedial action. Speakers with widely divergent opinions discussed the various ways in which the increasing development and use of technology may affect man's well-being. Their presentations were titled: Man's Conquest of Energy: Its Ecological and Human Consequences; The Nucs: Energy vs. the Environment; Nuclear Power Plants: Present, Past, and Future; The Radiation Hazard for Man; A Proposal for a Rational Policy to Control Radioactivity and Other Forms of Pollution; The Public and Radiation from Nuclear Power Plants; Adequacy of Present Radiation Standards; The Nuclear Power Information Communication Predicament; Nuclear Power Licensing: Risk--Benefit Determinations and the Public Interest; Nuclear Power: You Never Had It So Good; Benefits and Costs of Nuclear Power; and What We Do Know About Low-Level Radiation.
