Mark Lynas, author of “The God Species: Saving the Planet in the Age of Humans” joined us for the hour on Wednesday. He says we need to embrace Nuclear Power and Genetically Modified Organisms as parts of any successful portfolio of solutions to Climate Change. Many fellow environmentalists disagree.
Monday on Access Utah we’ll get a rebuttal on Nuclear Power from Matt Pacenza, Policy Director with the Healthy Environmental Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah.) We’ll ask: can we solve our energy problems without nuclear? Are solar, wind and other renewable energy sources sufficient to sustain our needs in an economically viable way?
