Nuclear power is evil. Solar power is our savior. Or…is it the other way around? On Wednesday, March 9, at 7:00 p.m. EST, the University of Texas will present an entertaining lecture about how movies have depicted energy sources and therefore shaped public opinion and government policy, for generations. The evening will be filled with video clips and expert debates, and you can watch the whole event, live, right here at ScientificAmerican.com
We'll be taking questions on Facebook & Twitter (tag #energymovies) and I can report that this is one of the most unique and engaging projects I've been involved organizing. We've got quite a cool and interactive show, so tune in and you won't be disappointed!
