How Energy and Environmental Concerns Impact International Security

Sunday, February 17, 2008

1:00- 4:00 pm

MIT Building 4, Room 153 <http://tinyurl.com/2yq6vh>

As concern about climate change builds and global security is
challenged by the ever-increasing demand for energy worldwide, policy
makers and the public debate the best ways to provide sustainable
energy.  Nuclear power is a popular solution, but it raises concerns
about environmental consequences and security risks as more countries
demand this energy source. This forum will discuss the challenges that
energy issues create for global security, as well as how scientists and
policy makers might work together to confront these issues to promote
safe, sustainable solutions for current and emerging energy problems.
Expert panelists will discuss various aspects of these complex
challenges, and then student participants will meet in working groups to
discuss potential pathways to energy security and sustainability.  //
