PASCO -- The pro-nuclear documentary Pandora's Promise will be shown at 5 p.m. Monday in the Gjerde Center on Columbia Basin College's Pasco campus.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Robert Stone examines how fears of atomic bombs and meltdowns have made nuclear energy synonymous with global disaster rather than a possible way to address climate change and help developing nations.

A question-and-answer session is planned after the screening with representatives from Areva, Energy Northwest, the American Nuclear Society, the Tri-City Development Council and Columbia Basin College.

The event is free, but advance tickets are required. Email dalford@columbia basin.edu.
