Summary

In the 2013 documentary Pandora’s Promise, Director Robert Stone reignited a public debate over the use of nuclear energy by challenging environmentalists to enlist atoms as an ally in the fight to stall climate change. Since its release, numerous public discussions have debated the merits of nuclear power as a source of electricity. This session sets aside those concerns. If we assume nuclear power is vital to substantially reducing global CO2 emissions, how could we get there? Join leading experts to explore the economic, technological, and political solutions that are needed for a nuclear future to occur.
