Hammer Forum

The Death of the Nuclear Renaissance

Thursday Jun 23, 2011 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM This is a past program

The recent catastrophic nuclear meltdowns in Japan have cast a shadow over the future of nuclear power that was undergoing a renaissance as a possible “clean energy” solution to the global warming crisis. Albert Carnesale, the Chancellor Emeritus of UCLA, Victor Gilinsky, a former commissioner of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and nuclear physicist Arjun Makhijani, head of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research, discuss the future of nuclear power.

This ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addresses current social and political issues.
