First Ever TED Debate

TED is a small non-profit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading; it started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three the worlds of Technology, Entertainment and Design.  Since then its scope has become ever broader, including two annual conferences – the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring plus the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford, UK each summer – and the award-winning TEDTalks video site.

In this first-ever TED debate, shown below, Stewart Brand and Mark Z. Jacobson discuss the pros and cons of nuclear power.

The debate mentions some of the points raised in our four part blog from last month (impact of a nuclear accident, radiation, fourth generation reactors and why nuclear power is not required).

After watching the debate, please explore the TED web site as it does have some really interesting videos.
