Columbia University, April 8th, 2015
Does nuclear energy have any role in stopping climate change? Kicking off the first of three days highlighting nuclear energy at Columbia University, CUCSD presents a screening of PANDORA’S PROMISE followed by a panel discussion with experts. Introduced by Nobuo Tanaka, President of Sasakawa Peace Foundation and former Executive Director of the IEA, a keynote by Bill Nye, The Science Guy, and author of Undeniable, who will also join our panel, Academy-Award®-nominated director Robert Stone, Gernot Wagner from Environmental Defense Fund and author of Climate Shock, and moderated by The New York Times’ Andrew Revkin. The atomic bomb and meltdowns like Fukushima have made nuclear power synonymous with global disaster. PANDORA’S PROMISE asks whether the one technology we fear most could save our planet from a climate catastrophe.
