About Session | Physics
Forethought India has hosted an online talk session in Physics in India. World renowned professor from Oxford university have shared their knowledge in this session.
Topic: Energy, the currency of nature.
Speakers for the talk session
Wade Allison is Emeritus Professor of Physics and Fellow of Keble College, Oxford. He spent his research career in experimental and theoretical Particle Physics at CERN and in the USA. He is listed as the author of some 245 scientific publications on ResearchGate. At Oxford he taught and lectured students in most areas from Mathematics to Medical Physics. In 2006 he published “Fundamental Physics for Probing and Imaging”, a textbook that included the effects of radiation. He has lectured around the world on the biological safety of radiation and the exceptional worldwide aversion to it that has been a cultural hallmark of the past 70 years. In 2009 he wrote an accessible book, “Radiation and Reason”, contrasting the acceptability of nuclear technology when used for human health in a clinic with the phobia of it when used in the environment. Following the accident he visited Fukushima several times and in 2015 published his third book “Nuclear is for Life”, which explores why such a powerful agent is almost harmless, a discussion that draws on physics, biology, history and many other disciplines. Although not seeing himself as a nuclear “activist”, from the evidence he concludes that if the human race has to forgo fossil fuels to mitigate climate change, nuclear power is the only solution.
He has never been attached to the nuclear industry or received expenses from them. He is a founder member of the worldwide Scientists for Accurate Radiation Information (SARI), and in the UK he is Honorary Secretary of the Supporters Of Nuclear Energy (SONE)
