        One by one, the Japanese shut down all their nuclear power plants, and you have a country of the Kyoto Protocol with very aggressive climate goals, and they hinged on this fleet of nuclear reactors. And you have one accident, and all this human suffering aside, and this technology has torn apart your goals for climate change. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): These two books are part of a general effort to generate a discourse that comes to terms with the future of nuclear power. They are different in several respects: Blowers and Pepper is an edited volume, is more self-consciously political in intention, and draws on work in a number of countries.

      Contents * Abstract * Introduction * Report * Conclusion * Bibliography * Appendix Abstract Nuclear energy could be the future of energy and potentially solve the energy crisis problem. Nuclear energy is a sustainable energy source and it can provide millions of times the amount of energy output from a fixed mass of fuel than any other energy.   The former top regulator of nuclear power in America, who in the midst of an international crisis promoted U.S. nuclear power plants as operating "safely and securely," now says in .

      Originally published in The Chernobyl disaster intensified the whole debate on the nuclear power industry. There was great public concern about the industry regulation, about the siting of nuclear facilities, including the dumping of nuclear waste, and about the alleged secretiveness of the industry. How Nuclear Power Will Lead the Green Revolution and End America's Energy Odyssey William Tucker This book is particularly recommended for its researched analysis of many energy options, with whole chapters on coal, oil, gas, solar, hydro, wind, geothermal, biofuels, and the California energy crisis.
