Should nuclear fill the UK's energy gap?
Does nuclear provide a genuinely low carbon energy supply?
How much do safety issues add to the cost?
Nikki Jones, researcher/writer on global energy will answer the question of why the UK government is intent on a nuclear energy strategy at the Salt Cafe on St George's Road, near Jacob's Wells roundabout, BS1 5UJ. She will explain the UK energy context, and how renewables and other technologies could offer a viable alternative. There will be opportunities for questions throughout.
This talk will be the fifth in a series of seven talks focusing on climate change and energy use. The other talks in this series are:
