A panel of Simon Fraser University professors assembled on Monday, April 11 at the Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue to discuss the ripple effects of Japan's nuclear crisis.
SFU researchers Mark Jaccard, Corina Andreoiu, Kris Starosta and Paul Schaffer shared their expertise in a variety of disciplines as they address issues related to the disaster.
Among questions that they addressed are: How big are the risks? Are the levels of radiation detected in the Pacific Northwest dangerous? How safe is nuclear energy in general? How does the current crisis compare to accidents like Chernobyl and Three Mile Island? How does nuclear energy work?
