Nuclear question: yes please, or no thanks?

Leviathan has a cracking opening debate as part of the BA’s Festival of Science. The BA has had a role in pioneering public understandin of science events, but they are not likely to have had the Leviathan experience before! Hosted by David McWilliams, the panel – comprising Evening Herald columnist and blogger Richard Delevan, TCD economist Constantin Gurdgiev, Green Party TD Eamon Ryan and other guests – will address the emotive and potentially explosive question: “Is Nuclear Power the Solution to Global Warming?”. There will also be music from the talented Jinx Lennon.The excellent is running a live forum on the question here to which members of the public are invited to contribute.

Leviathan is a monthly political cabaret featuring debate, discussion and occasional satire, comedy and music.
