The New Fire: Screening & Discussion

Join MIT for this special, free screening of The New Fire, followed by a panel discussion with director David Schumacher; Kerry Emanuel, Cecil & Ida Green Professor of Atmospheric Science, MIT; and Michael Short, Norman Rasmussen Assistant Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering, MIT.

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 the course of 22 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.
