ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the politics behind the installations of nuclear plants in the U.S. The safety record of nuclear energy in the country reflects this very impressive history. Furthermore, energy from fission can be used for the foreseeable future. However, the author holds that the nuclear waste disposal problem in the country is political, not scientific. The government opposed reprocessing because it may lead to proliferation of nuclear weapons.
