The 2019 edition of the ELI-Miriam Hamilton Keare Policy Forum brought together four experts to debate the future of nuclear power at a time when humanity is facing a climate crisis. The event leveraged on the recent ELI Press publication of a book on “deep decarbonization,” which envisions cuts of at least 80 percent by 2050 in emissions from the United States, a goal that is necessary to meet the 2 degree Celsius target of the Paris Agreement.
