Nuclear Power: the Intelligence Squared debate

Intelligence Squared is hosting a public debate on the nuclear issue in the wake of the Fukushima disaster

In the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster that's still unfolding in Japan, questions are being asked worldwide about the safety and legitimacy of nuclear power. Many nations are sticking with their nuclear commitments. Do viable alternatives exist? Can wind, solar and tidal power make up the shortfall? There’s no simple answer, and the issue continues to polarise opinion.

Intelligence Squared wants to bring the issue home by hosting a public debate this Thursday to give people a chance to have their say. The focus of the debate will be the nuclear policy in Britain, and what its future should be in light of recent events. A panel of experts will be discussing the issue and attendees will be allowed to ask questions and voice their own thoughts. Ecologist subscribers can get a 50 percent discount on the ticket price by entering the code ‘ecologist’ at checkout. Go on: have your say and be part of the debate on the future of nuclear power.

Cost: Tickets cost £25

When: Thursday April 14; 6:45 pm to 8:30 pm

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
