FUELING OUR FUTURE - Re-considering Nuclear Energy: A Global Shift?
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Downtown

FUELING OUR FUTURE - Re-considering Nuclear Energy: A Global Shift?

With seven billion people in the world (nine billion projected by 2050), many of whom live in rapidly developing countries, the need for modern technologies with their attendant energy demands is increasing at an exponential rate. Will it be possible to provide sufficient energy for this generation and the next? How will the energy race change global economies and politics?

Join CGA faculty and experts in the field to discuss the changing landscape of global energy: its potential, challenges, and its impact on how we live today.

Re-considering Nuclear Energy: A Global Shift?

Monday, November 3, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

Nuclear energy is the largest source of carbon-free electricity the world puts to use today, but questions remain about the technology's safety, its cost, and what to do with spent nuclear fuel...not to mention nuclear security and weapons proliferation. How are some key regions approaching the issue of nuclear energy today? How have Japanese and European attitudes and policies shifted in the years following the Fukushima Daiichi disaster of 2011 and how has this affected carbon emissions? Finally, what could be the impact of a nuclear Middle East as these oil and gas producers develop nuclear energy?

Join Chris Gadomski, Lead Analyst, Nuclear at Bloomberg New Energy Finance and CGA adjunct assistant professor, for a conversation with industry experts examining the current global thinking on nuclear energy and its potential to change the current energy landscape.

Panelists:

Seth Grae,
President and Chief Executive Officer, Lightbridge

REVISITING RUSSIA - Anna Arutunyan: The Putin Mystique 

From the “Evil Empire,” through “Upper Volta with Rockets” and then to the “Wild East,” outsiders have time and again tried to come to terms with Russia, its domestic trajectory, and its place in the world.

Join CGA Clinical Professor of Global Affairs and leading expert on Russian security affairs Mark Galeotti for a series of three conversations, featuring experts with distinctive perspectives on Russia who will dis­cuss the current state of the country, its future, and the role it is likely to play in the world.

America in Retreat: The New Isolationism and the Coming Global Disorder

Tuesday, November 25, 6.30 – 7.45 pm

Americans are weary of acting as the world's policeman, especially in the face of unending economic troubles at home. President Obama stands for cutting defense budgets, leaving Afghanistan, abandoning Iraq, appeasing Russia, and offering premature declarations of victory over al Qaeda. Meanwhile, some Republicans now also argue for a far smaller and less expensive American footprint abroad.

Bret Stephens rejects these policies. He argues that retreating from U.S. global responsibilities will ultimately exact a devastating price to national security and prosperity.

Bret Stephens, winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is the foreign affairs columnist and deputy editorial page editor of The Wall Street Journal. He was previously the editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post and has written for Foreign Affairs and Commentary, among other publications. 

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.
