ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the possibility of returning to nuclear power as a source of energy for its environment-friendly operation. The U.S. nuclear industry imploded after the 1979 partial meltdown at the Three Mile Island reactors in Pennsylvania, followed by Chernobyl in 1986. Today, with experience and improved operating practices, output at the remaining U.S. nuclear plants exceeds 90 percent. People at the academic, industrial, and government levels say nuclear power is proven, and the best way to escape the use of fossil fuels and the damage they do to the environment. INSET: MAKING THE CASE.
