In this week's Inside the Issues, Director of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, Sir David King, talks with Inside the Issues about science and how it interacts with global political forces. In doing so King says that, despite negative public perceptions, nuclear power and genetically-modified foods hold massive global potential for safe energy production and enriched agricultural products, and that climate change adaptation will become a disruptive fact of life in the future.

Now in its second season, the Inside the Issues weekly podcast series will run from October 2011 to April 2012, covering timely and candid discussions on issues related to the core areas of CIGI expertise: Global Economy, Global Security & Politics, and International Law. Join host and CIGI Chair David Welch as he goes in depth with leading experts on the most pressing global governance challenges facing the international community today.
