Speakers: Prof Jim Smith (Portsmouth)

The UK is at present planning to build new nuclear power stations to replace our current ageing reactors. Nuclear is seen by some as providing a secure source of energy with low greenhouse gas emissions. By others it is seen as dangerous, polluting and expensive. Based on his extensive experience of working on the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident, Professor Jim Smith will discuss the health and environmental risks of radioactivity and how the media influence our perception of these risks.

Refreshments start at 7pm and the lecture starts at 7:30pm.
