ABSTRACT
This article discusses some of the less publicized issues involved in the use of nuclear power. There are two sides to the use of nuclear power: either it is accepted as the only solution to energy consumption, or it's use is totally rejected. At a conference, opponents of nuclear power explained some reasons for its rejection. Forecasts for future energy demands were overestimated and demands have proven to be far less than predicted. If nuclear power programs receive large investments of capital, that will place an inordinate amount of political power in the hands of the small group that controls the nuclear power industry.
