By Special to the Monitor


The League of Women Voters will have their monthly Lunch with a Leader at 11:40 a.m. Jan. 10. The speaker will be Tom Ribe. The event is open to the public.

Ribe is a native of Los Alamos, raised by long-time League of Women Voters activist Mally Ribe. 

He worked for Los Alamos National Laboratory between 1992 and 1997 in the Environmental Restoration program. He has his master’s degree in environmental policy from the University of Oregon and has written extensively on energy, public lands and wildfire. 

His talk will cover Los Alamos’ power sources and urge an update of the electricity supply over the next decade to address climate change. 

He will discuss how Los Alamos’ power supply is vulnerable and unreliable and should be produced in Los Alamos, using a combination of energy conservation, green power and natural gas power.  

Those interested in attending should call Karyl Ann Armbruster at 661-6605 or email her at kaskacayman@gmail.com, to order lunch. 

The $10 lunch includes many choices of a whole sandwich or half sandwich, with soup or salad, chips and a cookie. Order lunch by 7 p.m. Jan. 8.  The public is welcome to attend the talk even if lunch is not ordered.
