Powering the Planet (2010 Event)
Scotland is seeking to become a world leader in renewable energy, while the arguments continue to rage about oil, 'cleaner coal' and nuclear power. How do we provide fuel for the world without destroying it in the process, and can Scotland really be a key player? In this event - part our popular debates and environment strand in 2010 - our panel discuss the options. Featuring former MSP and Professor of Social Change at Queen Margaret University, Susan Deacon; Dr Benny Peiser, Director of The Global Warming Policy Foundation; Duncan McLaren and chair Ruth Wishart.
