Update: David Wogan's blog post summarizing the event can now be accessed over on The Guest Blog


Nuclear power is evil. Solar power is our savior. Or…is it the other way around? Tonight, March 9, at 7:00 p.m. EST, the University of Texas will present an entertaining lecture about how movies have depicted energy sources and therefore shaped public opinion and government policy, for generations. The evening will be filled with video clips and expert debates, and you can watch the whole event, live, right here at ScientificAmerican.com

You can learn more here. Or just come back to this Scientific American page tonight, for the live feed. One of our newest guest bloggers, David Wogan, will also be tweeting from his choice seat at the live event, and his observations will stream right below the video.

Enjoy! Tell others to check it out: http://bit.ly/iaW3c2, and on Twitter #energymovies.
