Daniel B. Poneman - Double Jeopardy: Combating Nuclear Terror and Climate Change — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As the consequences of climate change grow ever more dire, it seems imperative that we use every alternative to carbon-based fuels—but does this include nuclear energy? Poneman argues that it does, despite the risks that atomic materials and technology could fall into the hands of terrorists. Drawing on his extensive experience as a former deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy, acting secretary of energy, and former member of the National Security Council staff, Poneman, now a senior fellow with the Belfer Center at the Harvard Kennedy School, shows that the issues of atomic power and climate change are inextricably linked. His insightful analysis squarely faces the dangers and answers them with a series of policy and security proposals premised on cooperation between government and industry to maximize energy benefits and minimize risks.
