Lecture Theatre, Poynting Physics Building, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, B15 2TT

Speakers: Dr Paul Norman, University of Birmingham

Global climate change is one of the biggest threats our planet faces, and one of the proposed methods of helping to combat this climate change is an increase in the use of nuclear power worldwide. Yet much of what we read or hear about nuclear power is as much fiction as it is fact - usually due to misrepresenting arguments or data. This talk aims to explode the myths and present the reality behind nuclear power, including the physics/science behind why certain things are true or not true.
Refreshments available from 19:00.
