Senator Pete V. Domenici will be signing the latest books on his vast Congressional career at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 4. The Senator will also discuss highlights of his life of service, including his current participation in the Bipartisan Policy Center. According to the publisher, one of the books, “Not Just New Mexico’s Senator: Senator Pete V. Domenici’s Leadership on Four Issues Affecting Our Nation’s Future,” “takes a more focused path, discussing four complex and critical issues of national and international importance where Senator Domenici took a leadership role developing solutions to long-standing problems.”
The authors of the books have also been invited to attend and sign books. They are:
Senator Pete Domenici’s Legacy 2008 by Jon Hunner
Senator Pete Domenici’s Legacy 2009 by Vicki Taggert
Not Just New Mexico’s Senator by Martin Janowski
Domenici serves as an honorary board member of the National Atomic Museum Foundation and was the recipient of the 2008 National Award of Nuclear Science, presented annually by the Museum to a prominent person that has had an impact on nuclear issues. Domenici is recognized for his efforts as New Mexico’s longest-serving Senator and a proponent of science and technology. He pushed for passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, intended to accelerate U.S. development of clean and renewable energy resources.
“We look forward to hosting what is sure to be an informative discussion of the Senator’s passion for public service,” said Jim Walther, Director of the Museum. “The Senator’s ability to provide fascinating insights into current and important topics is not to be missed.”
Domenici is also the author of A Brighter Tomorrow: Fulfilling the Promise of Nuclear Energy, in which he argues that after weighing the costs and benefits of energy production, nuclear power must be a major contributor toward reducing the world’s CO2 emissions and overall dependence on increasingly scarce and perilously political supplies of oil and gas.
There is no additional cost to attend the event beyond the Museum’s usual admission of $8 for adults and $7 for youth and seniors. For further information, contact the Museum at 245-2137, extension 114.
