Making the Case for Nuclear Energy in the 21st Century

Leading scientists and world bodies now say climate change goals will not be
achieved without a significant role for nuclear energy, both existing and new
resources. But how can nuclear energy make a difference given the challenges it
faces, some real and some imagined?
Join us for a lively discussion featuring a panel of experts with national and
global perspectives on nuclear energy. Topics will include cost, safety, used
nuclear fuel and advanced reactor designs; as well as nuclear’s ability to lift
millions of people out of poverty around the world.
Our panelists are:
Dr. James Conca, a Forbes.com contributor on energy and environmental issues,
and a Richland-based scientist specializing in nuclear waste issues for more than
30 years.
Nick Touran, an advanced nuclear reactor physicist at TerraPower in Bellevue,
energy enthusiast, and programmer.
Kristin Zaitz, senior consulting engineer at Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in
California, co-founder of Mothers for Nuclear, environmentalist, and avid
backpacker.
Discussion moderator:
Scott Montgomery, nationally acclaimed writer, and adjunct faculty at University
of Washington’s Jackson School of International Studies. He is a geologist who has worked in the field of and taught global energy.
