Hosted by Richard Wolfson
Given that fossil-fueled electricity generation accounts for about one-third of planet-warming global carbon emissions, might we help alleviate the climate crisis by getting more of our electricity from nuclear?
W. W. Norton author Richard Wolfson explores this question with a look at nuclear technology, its safety and its environmental impacts, its connection with nuclear weapons, and the prospect of building sufficient nuclear capacity to provide a significant drop in carbon emissions.
Richard is the author of the textbook, Energy, Environment, and Climate from W. W. Norton, and Nuclear Choices for the Twenty-first Century: A Citizen’s Guide published in 2021 by MIT Press.
