Event description

Description

For the last 50 years, nuclear energy has provided over 65% of US Carbon-free power. Now, half of the remaining plants are at risk of closing in the next 15 years, completely erasing all climate progress made from building wind and solar. The Sierra Club and other environmental groups supported nuclear in the 1960s-- but now campaign against it. How did we come to fear nuclear power, and is the fear justified in the face of climate change? Michael Shellenberger,Time Environmental Hero of the Year, founder of the Breakthrough Institute, and current President of Environmental Progress, a Berkeley organization composed of climate scientists and environmentalists, will engage in discussion with the audience on where we came from, where we are, and where we must go as a society to protect future generations. No matter where you stand, get ready to challenge your assumptions.
