Past President's Night
Friday, 21 July 2006
Felicity Marrs and speaker J. Paul Pleasant, President of Energy Frontiers International
The speaker, J. Paul Pleasant, Esq., provided an in-depth insight into future world energy needs. The current reliance on fossile fuels is unsustainable from an environmental standpoint. Nuclear energy is an answer but, again, new technology utilizing thorium reactors is needed to reduce nuclear waste and to burn up excess plutonium.

Unfortunately, there was an electrical power failure at the ATCC which caused the dinner to be canceled. Mr. Pleasant could not use his prepared visual aids but nevertheless gave an outstanding talk in the gathering darkness, using a flashlight occasionally to check his notes. As total darkness approached, ATCC personnel with flashlights guided members to the exits.
