THE NEW FIRE - FILM SCREENING & FIRESIDE CHAT

FREE EVENT


FILM SCREENING & FIRESIDE CHAT


What if the solution to climate change is hiding in plain sight? 

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.

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 twenty-two 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.

Featuring: Jeffrey Sachs, Bill Gates, James Hansen, Ken Caldeira, Kerry Emanuel and nuclear start-ups Oklo, Transatomic and TerraPower.


Free admission. Free popcorn. Open to the public.

From Dr. Akira Tokuhiro, Dean, Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science:

 “The Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science (FESNS) at UOIT offers the only honours degree dedicated to nuclear engineering in Canada. Partnering with film director David Schumacher to present his documentary at the Regent Theatre aligns with our goal to educate students and the community-at-large about safe, efficient methods of generating energy, in particular the innovative and environmentally-conscious use of nuclear technologies. We hope to inspire the next generation by shining a spotlight on the young heroes in Mr. Schumacher’s film.”
