An expert in several areas, including nuclear power, nuclear waste, radiation exposure, the Iran nuclear crisis, nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament, and global warming and clean energy options, Dr. Kanter will address practical action steps to protect human beings and the planet by working steadily and assiduously toward the complete abolition of nuclear weapons.
