As the climate crisis meets an energy supply crisis, Rafael Mariano Grossi, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, and Gillian Tett, author and Financial Times US editor-at-large, discuss whether and how the world can manage to overcome both. Will evidence-based thinking or ideology decide the energy mix of the future? Is nuclear energy about to have its next renaissance and can nuclear science help us adapt to the consequences of climate change, whether by allowing farmers to breed hardier crops or communities to manage scarce water resources? In this discussion, available through livestream, they will examine from their different viewpoints how the world will respond to the opportunities and the challenges that will profoundly affect all our lives over the coming decades, so we can all make our own mind on the best way forward.
