Zakaj sem si premislil o jedrski energiji | Michael Shellenberger

Michael Shellenberger je soustanovitelj in višji sodelavec na Inštitutu Breakthrough, kjer je bil predsednik od leta 2003 do 2015, in soavtor Ekomodernističnega manifesta.

Over the last decade, Michael and his colleagues have constructed a new paradigm that views prosperity, cheap energy and nuclear power as the keys to environmental progress. A book he co-wrote (with Ted Nordhaus) in 2007, Break Through: From the Death of Environmentalism to the Politics of Possibility, was called by Wired magazine “the best thing to happen to environmentalism since Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring,” while Time Magazine called him a “hero of the environment.” In the 1990s, he helped protect the last signi cant groves of old-growth redwoods still in private hands and bring about labor improvements to Nike factories in Asia. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
