Summers Henderson produced, directed and edited this 55-minute documentary, and did most of the videography. "Nuclear Climate Change" explores the potential of nuclear power to be a solution to the climate-change crisis. Nuclear power plants don't produce the greenhouse gases which cause global warming, but questions remain about nuclear power's safety and long-term hazards. Are the risks associated with nuclear power worth the reward of clean energy? As the narrator of the film, Summers does offer his own opinions, but the aim of the film is to provoke informed debate about this critical, complicated issue.
Summers made "Nuclear Climate Change" as his final project for the Master of Arts in Media Arts program at Emerson College in Boston. The film screened at the Connecticut Film Festival and the Boston International Film Festival.
