One year after Fukushima: The future of nuclear energy in Europe

speakers

Patrick Moore, Co-founder of Greenpeace, Co-Chair of the Clean and Safe Energy
Coalition, Honorary Chairman of Environmentalist for Nuclear Energy Canada and Chair and
Chief Scientist of Greenspirit Strategies in Vancouver Canada.

 
Patrick Moore began his career as an activist and founder of Greenpeace, where he worked
in the top committee for 15 years. Today, he is Chair and Chief Scientist of Greenspirit
Strategies Ltd. He supports the use of nuclear power, having argued that “Now—more than
ever before—nuclear energy is the electricity source that can save our planet from another
possible disaster: potentially harmful climate change.”

Jo Leinen MEP, Member and former Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety

Jo Leinen has long-opposed the use of nuclear technology in Europe, and was previously a spokesperson for the German anti-nuclear movement. He has actively campaigned against the construction of new nuclear plants and, as Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on the Environment, called for thorough “stress tests” on all nuclear power plants in Europe in the wake of the Fukushima disaster.
