'Is there a place for new nuclear build in generating energy for civilian use?'
In the face of climate change, even environmentalists now advocate nuclear power as an essential part of a low-carbon future. This talk explored some of the pros and cons of this option, and discussed the inevitable technical links with nuclear weapons of mass destruction.
It also looked back to the events at Fukushima a year after the earthquake and tsunami on March 11th 2011.
