ABSTRACT
The article discusses the renewal of interest in nuclear power due to increasing concerns about greenhouse gases and a growing need for large-scale energy production. European countries are slowly accepting proposals for nuclear plants despite lingering fears since the partial meltdown at the Chernobyl nuclear plant in the Ukraine in 1986. Increased public support of nuclear power is noted. Concerns about the safety of facilities and the link between nuclear power and weapons are raised.
