Uranium is a powerful energy source with unusual byproducts.  Two dozen radioactive “progeny” are found in the ore when uranium is mined.  Hundreds more radioactive offspring are created when uranium fuels a nuclear reactor.  Gordon Edwards will discuss what the future holds for uranium and its legacy of radioactive wastes.  He will also explain why Canada’s climate change strategy should not include new nuclear reactors.
