Hide / Show Abstract

Nuclear power can help address many of our world’s most pressing concerns. It is a clean, reliable, economic source of energy that can be used to meet a significant portion of current demand for energy, as well as anticipated future increases in demand. Increased reliance on nuclear power to generate electricity will permit many millions of people throughout the world to experience an improved and sustainable quality of life. In addition, by decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, nuclear power can alleviate price volatility in energy markets and potential supply shortages and disruptions. Moreover, nuclear power produces large amounts of energy with no atmospheric emissions of pollutants such as NOx or SO2, and no emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2. To address global climate change effectively, nuclear power must play an increasingly important role in meeting our world's energy needs.
