Today on the BBC World Services radio programme HARDtalk, we heard an interview with John Ritch, Director General, World Nuclear Association and Sven Giegold, a leading German Green member of the European parliament. Host Stephen Sackur asked his guests to discuss the impact of Fukushima on the global nuclear industry. Ultimately the question is: Which is more frightening, a world with or without nuclear power?
TalkNuclear knows nuclear energy is an affordable, available and reliable source of energy that will allow us to meet our growing energy demands while addressing climate change since it doesn’t contribute greenhouse gasses or smog to the atmosphere. More than energy production, Canadian nuclear in particular has pioneered, and continues to develop, many important medical technologies which have saved and improved the lives of millions around the world.
We know what world we’d rather live in: Nuclear power? Yes please!
Listen to the interview and let us know what you think.
