About this Event

Join the San Diego Section of the American Nuclear Society for dinner with an exciting presentation and discussion on the role of nuclear energy and renewables in fighting climate change. The presentation by our section member Mehdi Sarram will start at 6 pm.


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlights the urgent situation faced by over 3.3 billion people who are highly vulnerable to climate change, emphasizing the need for immediate and impactful action. Central to this presentation is the exploration of nuclear power and various forms of renewable energy as pivotal solutions in the global effort to combat climate change. As the world's population is anticipated to reach 10 billion by 2050, the strategic shift from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources, particularly nuclear and renewables, is of utmost importance.


The presentation will provide data on the efficiency and environmental impact of nuclear energy and renewable sources, covering aspects like CO2 emissions, capacity factors, mortality rates, and cost-effectiveness. The role of nuclear and renewable energies in mitigating recent environmental crises such as water scarcity and extreme weather events will also be a focus.


Additionally, insights from the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 28) in Dubai will be incorporated, highlighting global strategies involving nuclear and renewable energy. These insights will demonstrate the need for a shift in energy consumption patterns, especially among wealthier nations.
