Nuclear power in China (reprise) - China Weekly Hangout

The China Weekly Hangout of coming Thursday 22 November will focus on nuclear power in China, and the likelihood increasing NIMBY protests might derail that ambitious energy program. The hangout was delayed from  November 8 (see here the initial announcement) as we unfortunately forgot to take into account the change in daylight saving time in the US and missed our panelists.
This time, we are sure we can welcome Chris Brown and Richard Brubaker, and perhaps a few other guests for another session on China's energy security.
We plan to hold two session of 15 minutes each, one about the current state of nuclear power in China, a second on the effect of NIMBY protest against nuclear plants.
A good overview is available here.
The China Weekly Hangout will be held at 10pm Beijing Time, 3pm CET (Europe) and 9pm EST (US/Canada).

Will the growing NIMBY movement in China stop the nuclear ambitions?
