In the face of escalating global energy demands and the urgent need to transition to clean, sustainable energy sources, the conversation around nuclear energy is of paramount importance. With over 50 countries generating nuclear energy in about 220 research reactors, nuclear power remains a significant player in the global energy landscape. The panel discussion will delve into the intricacies of nuclear energy, addressing common misconceptions and highlighting its numerous benefits, including those of research reactors, which require less fuel and generate less waste. Drawing from the documentary "Nuclear Now!" by Oliver Stone, the discussion will explore how nuclear energy can help the global community address climate change and achieve net zero carbon emissions. This session is an opportunity to learn, to question, and to understand. It’s a chance to be part of a conversation that could help shape the future of our planet.
