Joshua Goldstein, a former environmentalist and professor, joins the Federalist Radio Hour to discus how he came to understand the potential future of nuclear energy. Ben Domenech interviews Goldstein about a realistic timeline for fighting climate change, renewable energy options, and how other countries have successfully utilized clean energy.
“Back in the 1970’s when I was against nuclear power…we didn’t know how dangerous it would be, we didn’t know about climate change, and we were scared about nuclear weapons, but now all that has changed,” Goldstein said. “We know now, over 60 years later, it’s extremely safe.”
Goldstein is the co-author of the new book, “A Bright Future: How Some Countries Have Solved Climate Change and the Rest Can Follow.”
