All, feel free to post questions to Chat.
Since you have so much experience on climate change and nuclear energy from a high level, how do you think someone like myself (early in career/PhD student) could most effectively combat climate change? What would be your answer to the same question from someone out of the nuclear field?
What is the role of the NEA in conferences like COP21 amongst other international bodies and what are some concrete resulting actions from the work of the agency beyond the analyses that were shared? What are some examples for the 24 international joint projects the NEA is involved with? Looking forward to reading the reports and thank you for making them publicly available!
Even with a 1.4 Billion USD underwrite, communities in Idaho are walking away from the NuScale project. This risk adverse attitude can only be overcome by demonstrating that the perceived risk is not as great as imagined. How do we educate regional utilities about this?
We do have floating nuclear facilities: they are called submarines and aircraft carriers. Too bad the technology is considered secret.
With the onset of more SMRs, I anticipate that waste will grow to present a bigger problem - if not now, definitely in the future. Do you think small scale fusion will dethrone small scale fission reactors?
Thank you this was a very insightful talk. It is an important and wonderful discussion to have and to continue. Heading off to class now.

I need to step off at 9:00a. A really big thank you to Bill Magwood! re
Thank you for the insightful talk and special thanks for the serious actions towards climate change by the NEA
Need to sign-off for class in a couple of minutes
I will check the recording for the full Q&A
Definitely one of my favourites, thank you so much!
Thanks for the response!
is there any work on creating a better metric to compare waste "consequenses" from different energy resources?
