Dear Participants in the Critical Issues Forum,
Welcome to Monterey, California! The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies and the Monterey Institute of International Studies are very excited to host this year’s CIF Spring Conference here in the beautiful Monterey Bay. We are looking forward to seeing all the student presentations in the next two days.
This year’s CIF topic “Nuclear Renaissance: Benefits versus Risks” is a timely and significant issue. Many countries, including Russia and the United States, seriously embrace the expansion of nuclear power and the development of new nuclear technologies. At the same time, they also champion international efforts to minimize safety and security risks associated with these technologies.
We trust you have learned a great deal about nuclear energy and its peaceful uses and about efforts to minimize and eliminate any risks. You will have the opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned over the past few months and share your experiences, findings, and excitement with us during the conference. We also hope that you will use this unique forum and its setting to interact with each other, with students and teachers from other parts of the United States and from Russia, and to build lasting friendships that will lead towards a better and safer world to live and thrive in.
My colleagues and I extend our sincere congratulations to all of you on your efforts in developing and implementing your research and other CIF projects and the great job you have done. You should all be very proud of yourselves. I hope your participation in the CIF projects will remain a unique and valuable experience in your study and something that you can apply in your future careers.
Best wishes for a successful conference,
Elena K. Sokova.

History of the CIF
The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) began its high school educational outreach effort in 1997 in order to meet the needs of nonproliferation education among the high school students, which was practically non-existent. CNS initiated the CIF in 1998 in partnership with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Science and Technology Education Program, and became the project leader of the CIF in 1999. CIF aims to empower students to develop informed opinions and think critically about the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, and other crucial international issues of the 21st century.

Public Hearing on Proposed Nuclear Power Plant
Franklin High School students will role play a public hearing (public forum for citizens to voice their concerns) on a proposed nuclear power plant in a controversial location in the county of Sacramento, California. Experts and ordinary citizens will address the pros and cons of nuclear energy and the impact of the plant in their community.
(в порядке презентаций)
Открытое заседание посвященное строительству АЭС
Ученики школы имени Франклин в ролях разыграют открытое заседание (заседание, на котором граждане обсуждают общественные проблемы), посвященное строительству атомной электростанции в округе Сакраменто, штата Калифорнии, в месте, вызывающем разногласия. Специалисты и обыкновенные граждане обсудят достоинства и недостатки атомной энергии и последствия строительства АЭС для региона.
In my presentation I will discuss the following:
I will also touch upon nuclear power plants’ risks and benefits and the act of terrorism in Israel. I will give my forecast for different energy sources in the future and present a role play game.
В своей презентации я коснусь следующих тем:
- различные источники энергии
- история потребления нефти, газа и угля в России и США за последние сто шесть лет
- запасы нефти, газа и угля мировых сил
- использование этих запасов
- интервью со специалистом в отношении различных источников энергии
Также, я расскажу о преимуществах и недостатках АЭС и коснусь террористического акта в Израиле. В заключение, я представлю свой прогоз относительно будущего различных источников энергии и предложу разработанную мной ролевую игру.
Environmental protection is one of the main problems today. Industrial civilization is characterized by numerous factories and power stations. Technological progress improves people's lives, but at the same time it causes numerous problems that were unimaginable in the past centuries. Imagine... One day, it was decided to build a new power plant on the lake. Area residents organized to protest against the construction because of the Chernobyl terrible disaster that led to a radioactive explosion. The second reason of the protest was the fact that this lake was one of the most beautiful recreation places around. However, powerful business leaders and policymakers had another opinion.
Their arguments were:
- new nuclear plant will provide hundreds of highly skilled, high-paying jobs and will help to maintain leadership in the technology field;
- nowadays nuclear power plant is among the safest place to work because federal safety regulators have certified new designs that apply advanced technology;
- industry and government are testing new and improved licensing approaches.
The question is: Who is right?
