What are the politics of the new nuclear push, and how should we respond?
With the absolute failure to address climate change, the fracturing of the global order, and the demand for nuclear subs, the push for nuclear is back on the global agenda, across Left and Right. The push is restarting nuclear proliferation, the economic case for it is fictional, and the political forces behind it are reactionary and sinister. But there is also a growing movement across the world among sections of the Left, high-profile environmentalists and some Greens parties, to use ‘small’ nuclear as a ‘smart’ solution. What are the politics of this, and how should we respond? Our panel will give expert update on the folly of the nuclear push, the unspoken catastrophic effects of nuclear, and lead out discussion as to whether we have got to the heart of the existential challenge that nuclear represents, and what sort of new thinking might be needed to confront it.
