Get ready for some gastronomical fusion and fission as sustainability expert Jonathan Porritt and former Executive Director of Greenpeace UK Stephen Tindale go head-to-head.

This monumental debate is not to be missed if only to understand the sudden U-turn Tindale made several years back when he decided that he was in fact in favour of nuclear energy.

More surprising than that time Bob Dylan was a Christian!

More shocking than when David Mamet came out as a Republican!

Porritt is not impressed.

To give you a taste of fresh, steamy disagreement, here’s a quote from Stephen Tindale’s pro-nuclear apologetic in The Ecologist:

Nuclear power is not perfect, and certainly not cheap. But it is low-carbon, even when its full life cycle is taken into account.

And Porritt’s response? Well, here’s what he had to say two years earlier in The Guardian:

It doesn’t really matter what you think: it cannot possibly deliver – primarily for economic reasons.

But economics just skims the surface.
