EP's President and Founder Michael Shellenberger will be a keynote speaker at the Environmental Studies Association of Canada's 2017 Annual Conference. ESAC is Canada’s leading association of professional environmental researchers. ESAC is a member organization of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), and each year we hold our Annual Conference in conjunction with the CFHSS’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. Ours is a small to medium-sized conference held as part of a very large grouping of concurrent conferences held by other CFHSS member associations, all happening within a 10-day span at a specific Canadian university.
New opportunities for nuclear energy are expanding globally. Realizing those opportunities will demand innovation throughout the nuclear lifecycle to address the needs of new customers and to ensure that nuclear power is an effective and competitive partner in our future energy mix. The session will depart from the traditional plenary format and include a single keynote talk followed by a rapid fire of brief vignettes of innovations that are occurring in many corners of the nuclear industry.
The keynote address will be delivered by Michael Shellenberger, President of Environmental Progress.

International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in the 21st Century Talk: The Future of Nuclear
Michael Shellenberger will speak at the IAEA's quadrennial Ministerial Conference on nuclear to be held from October 30 to November 1 in Abu Dhabi. The objective of the conference is to enable the participants to engage in high-level dialogue on the role of nuclear power in meeting future energy demand, contributing to sustainable development and mitigating climate change, as well as to discuss and exchange views on the key issues related to the development and deployment of nuclear power.
In the ‘60s, conservationists were pro-nuclear — what changed? Time Magazine “Hero of the Environment” Michael Shellenberger will reveal the truth about why environmentalists turned against our largest source of clean power — and why we need it more than ever.
This talk is a part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Distinguished Lecture Series. Event is open, unticketed, and free to both students and the public, and will end with a 30 minute Q&A.
