Eric Schmidt Discusses ‘Pandora’s Promise’ With Director Robert Stone

In a recent “At Google” talk, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt sat down with Robert Stone, Director of the documentary Pandora’s Promise, along with some of the cast.

Google has now made the video public for all to watch.

Here’s the film’s description (via YouTube):

The recent reactor meltdowns in Japan have ignited passionate worldwide debate about energy and the future of nuclear power. Pandora’s Promise is a feature-length documentary that explores how and why mankind’s most feared and controversial technological discovery is now passionately embraced by many of those who once led the charge against it. The film is anchored around the personal narratives of a growing number of leading former anti-nuclear activists and pioneering scientists who, in the face of considerable controversy, are directly challenging the anti-nuclear orthodoxy that is a founding tenet of the mainstream environmental movement. Their stories and ideas will be brought to life through a combination of incredible archival footage from 1945 to the present and original filming across the globe.

Operating as history, cultural meditation and contemporary exploration, Pandora’s Promise aims to inspire a serious and realistic debate over what is without question the most important question of our time: how do we continue to power modern civilization without destroying it?
