The Conservationism of Jimmy Carter. Lay Speaker: Lisa Jokiel
Jimmy Carter has been a conservationist of people. The young Lt. Carter, then 26, saved the lives of thousands of Canadian and American citizens when, as a young nuclear engineer in the Navy, he masterminded a plan to avert a nuclear disaster at the Chalk River Nuclear Research Laboratory in Ontario, Canada. Lisa will take a look at how Jimmy Carter championed the well-being of people and of the nature surrounding them during his political career and continuing long afterwards.
