Event description

Description

What if the solution to climate change were hiding in plain sight?

Nuclear power has been vilified in popular culture and among much of the environmental community. Yet the next-generation reactors currently in development may actually be key to avoiding global catastrophe. The young entrepreneurs heading this energy revolution realize they’re up against more than the climate clock – they need to convince all of us that the new nuclear is safe and achievable.

Filmed across four continents over twenty two months, Emmy-winning director David Schumacher’s film focuses on how the generation facing the most severe impact of climate change is fighting back with ingenuity and hope. The New Fire tells a provocative and startlingly positive story about a planet in crisis and the young heroes who are trying to save it.

Could the next climate heroes be nuclear engineers?

Join Director David Schumacher, CNL President and CEO Mark Lesinski and others for a panel discussion on the outlook for the new nuclear followed by a screening of The New Fire.

Interest in small modular reactor (SMR) technology continues to grow worldwide, with Canada gaining international attention for its pursuit of this clean, safe technology. As one of seven strategic initiatives identified by CNL in the organization’s Long Term Plan, SMRs hold great promise in solving many major environmental and energy challenges. CNL has established a goal of siting an SMR on one of its sites by 2026, and is positioning itself as a global leader in SMR prototype testing and technology development support.
