Kohl is a trained scientist who works at Eastern Connecticut State University's Institute for Sustainable Energy. Does Kohl consider nuclear power a renewable energy source? "I don't think my opinion is relevant to this conversation," she responds. "My job as an educator is to present information so that our future leaders can make informed decisions." Here's a quote from her Institute's "What is Energy? Web page: "Nuclear energy is a nonsustainable form of energy." Like Morgan, Kohl emphasizes that nuclear power "is a reality," whether we like it or not. She says the field trip will focus on Millstone scientists who monitor the air and water around the plant, to make sure it complies with environmental regulations. "It's a way to show scientists at work," she says--"that science is important, that there are real jobs out there." Millstone's Web site boasts that, "unlike many other fuels used in power plants to produce electricity, nuclear energy has a low impact on the environment, including the air, land, water and wildlife." Is that what the conference kids will hear at Millstone? Kohl says she doesn't know. Will they hear anything critical of Millstone or nuclear power? "You couldn't realistically say, 'Here is our group of scientists'" monitoring environmental impact and imply there is no problem, Kohl says. "Why would you need them if there's no problem?" You also couldn't realistically expect Millstone employees to dispute the company line that nuclear power is clean & green. Will anyone else at the conference tackle the subject from a more critical stance? "I think many of our students are very informed citizens," Kohl says. "It's a special group of students." But will the conference itself help them become informed about the dangers of nuclear plants? "Do you truly believe," Kohl asks, "that every statement must be balanced, if you will, by its opposite?
