And yet, nuclear power is maligned in much of the U.S. and the West. Gary Kahanak, a nuclear power advocate with a degree in Natural Resources, will lead the class in an examination of the origins of nuclear power; factors contributing to the culture of fear that surrounds it; basic radiation health, physics and safety; nuclear reactor types, existing and under development; nuclear waste; nuclear industry status, U.S. and global; proliferation issues; anti-nuclear arguments and rebuttals; climate change and the global energy challenge.
