Ahead of the 9pm ET premiere of CNN Films' Pandora's Promise, host Newt Gingrich and our guest host, former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, explore the topic of nuclear energy tonight at 6:30pm ET.
Joining the debate is consumer advocate Ralph Nader, who opposes nuclear power, and Michael Shellenberger, a nuclear energy supporter featured in the film.
