Screening questions nuclear power

-A A +A

 The Pajarito Environmental Education Center and the Reel Deal Theater present a special screening of “Pandora’s Promise,” the new film by Academy-Award-nominated director Robert Stone.
The movie will premiere 4 p.m. Sunday at the Reel Deal Theater.
The atomic bomb and meltdowns like Fukushima have made nuclear power synonymous with global disaster. But what if we’ve got nuclear power wrong?
An audience favorite at the Sundance Film Festival, “Pandora’s Promise” asks whether the one technology that is feared most could save the planet from a climate catastrophe, while providing the energy needed to lift billions of people in the developing world out of poverty.
Stone tells the intensely personal stories of environmentalists and energy experts who have undergone a radical conversion from being fiercely anti- to strongly pro-nuclear energy, risking their careers and reputations in the process.
Stone exposes this controversy within the environmental movement head-on, with stories of defection by heavyweights including Stewart Brand, Richard Rhodes, Gwyneth Cravens, Mark Lynas and Michael Shellenberger.
