In this re-scheduled show we speak to Rauli Partanen  co-author of the book "Climate Gamble". The climate gamble addresses the question of weather we are ignoring the one possible solution to out gorwing energy needs - Nuclear Power.

”Climate Gamble – Is Anti-Nuclear Activism Endangering Our Future?” is a thought-provoking, short and easy to read book on one of the biggest problems of our time, climate change, and one of its most misunderstood and misrepresented solution, nuclear power."

Rauli Partanen (BBA) is an author, an entrepreneur and a father of three. His first book Suomi öljyn jälkeen (with Harri Paloheimo and Heikki Waris) got shortlisted for both of Finlands large national non-fiction book awards. Its adapted translation The World After Cheap Oil was published by Routledge in late 2014, with a German translation (self-published) Die Welt nach dem billigen Öl following in early 2015. Rauli also writes articles on different papers and magazines and gives frequent lectures, presentations and interviews on the subjects of his expertise (energy in general and as a enabler of economic activity and well-being and environmental problems such as climate change, oil and nuclear energy especially, resource scarcity and so forth).

Myles and James The League of Nerds

About Myles.

For those of you who are just tuning in, my name is Myles Power and I run the educational YouTube channel powerm1985. I am originally from a small town in the North East of England called Middlesbrough, but have spend a large potion of my adult life living in Manchester. I am a chemist who is is currently working in industry, but what little free time I have I spend sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest and angry rants at pseudoscience opponents. I studied chemistry specialising in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester and Toronto. Later in my career, I moved more towards bio-chemistry and worked on projects including the synthesising various nucleic acid analogues for non-enzymatic transcription and controlling gene expression using a mutant riboswitch. I have over 7 years of experience working in a research lab, which has given me the skills I need to research and debunk virus psuedoscience theories. Some of the theories I have discussed on my YouTube channel including AIDS denialists, 911 truthers, the anti-vaccination movement and homeopathy to name a few.

About James.

James is a microbiologist who specialises in evolutionary microbiology. He knows very little about anything else. Currently he is about to start a postdoc on bacterial co-evolution with Phage for therapeutic reasons in France. He has been doing stuff online since about 2008. His biggest annoyance is Antivaxers.
