The lecture will show that there is no reason why nuclear energy should not be the ideal source of carbon-free energy. Life has evolved protection against radiation, and high doses are used to cure cancer. Evidence from accidents, from medicine, from the physical and biological sciences -- these all confirm that nuclear energy is safe and beneficial, and should be cheap too. Current radiation regulations are based on 70 years of social appeasement. Nuclear power should be freed from these science-blind restrictions and so help save the planet.
The lecture relates to Prof Allison's latest book, to be published soon.
