Professor M.V. Ramana: “Nuclear Energy and the Bomb”

Thursday, 12 October at 7PM

When thinking about energy transitions, the issue of nuclear weapons rarely comes to mind. Yet the connections between generating nuclear energy and the ability to make nuclear weapons have been evident since Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed. One connection is separating plutonium from used nuclear fuel, the technology proposed for Point Lepreau in New Brunswick. Other connections include the overlap in technical expertise and institutions. More info HERE.

This event is hosted by the CEDAR project and the Environment and Society Program at St. Thomas University with co-hosts the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War Canada (IPPNWC) and the NB Media Co-op.

M.V. Ramana is the Simons Chair in Disarmament, Global and Human Security and Professor at the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada
