The Climate Crisis & Nuclear Energy – Video of a U.S. Senate Hearing

THE CLIMATE CRISIS Status Report and Looking Forward:
Could Next-Generation Nuclear Be an Important Part of the Solution?

An educational event for members of Congress, congressional staff, and interested members of the public.

In the video the panel addresses the rapidly shrinking carbon budget, the growing demand for energy, and new approaches–such as using molten salt reactors and recycling nuclear waste–that make generating nuclear power safer and cheaper than the 20th century’s nuclear reactor designs.

HONORARY HOSTS
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ)
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

PANEL EXPERTS
Dr. Kerry Emanuel, Professor of Atmospheric Science, M.I.T.
Dr. Karl Hausker, Senior Climate Fellow, World Resources Institute
David Schumacher, Director of The New Fire
Caroline Cochran, COO and Co-founder, Oklo
Chris Levesque, President & CEO, TerraPower

Introduction by Adam Zipkin, Counsel, Office of Senator Cory Booker
