2013-01-10 Confronting a Nuclear Age: Risk Assessment in Technology, the Environment, Economics and Security
Free public lecture at 3-5pm on January 10th, 2013 in Room 044 (east end of the building in the basement) at University College, 15 King’s College Circle, Toronto, ON
Synopsis: Planning in the nuclear age requires us to choose among various technological options that may threaten (or instead may benefit) the biosphere on which human health and security depend. We will consider the controversial assessment of risks and benefits—the direct biological impacts of nuclear weapons and nuclear energy and their indirect economic impacts on our high-energy civilization. This lecture is part of the series Confronting a Nuclear Age which is co-sponsored by University College Health Studies Programme, Canadian Pugwash Group, Science for Peace and Voice of Women for Peace.
