Pandora’s Promise has been on the road around the world since its release at Sundance last January, 2013. It’s been shown literally hundreds of times to colleges, high schools, NGOs, boards of directors, environmental groups and in commercial theatres to name only a few groups.
CNN is premiering the documentary this week, Thursday, Nov. 7 at 9 pm. But leading up to this screening is a full week of discussion. Here’s the run down as best I know.
Monday @ 8am Robert Stone, director or Pandora’s Promise, be on CNN New Day debating Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club
Monday @ 11am Stone will be on CNN International – Connect the World with Becky Anderson
Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 7pm. Headline News with Erin Burnett will do a segment on nuclear waste.
Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 1pm on CNN.com Stone do a Facebook debate with an opponent of nuclear energy. The original person backed out, so I don’t know exactly who will be on this segment.
Wednesday, Nov. 6 (time TBD) Dr. James Hansen, former head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and climate scientist will be interviewed on CNN about Pandora’s Promise and nuclear energy.
Thursday, Nov. 7 at 6:30. New-age environmentalist Michael Shellenberger of the the Break Through Institute will debate Ralph Nader on Crossfire. This should be a great debate of the new thinking versus the old thinking.
Thursday, Nov. 7. The Situation Room is doing a segment with Gregory Jaczko – former head of NRC who recently stated that all US nuclear plants are unsafe and need to be shut down. He stands alone in this opinion. He does however support the idea of replacing them with newer, safer designs so this is an area of agreement.
Thursday, Nov. 7 at 9 pm. Airing of Pandora’s Promise.
Thursday, Nov. 7 at 11pm Stone will be on AC360 following the broadcast. Expect some sparks on this broadcast.
