ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposed energy plan of U.S. presidential candidate Republican John McCain. It includes the construction of 45 nuclear power plant by 2030 with additional 55. It presents data revealing the emissions for a nuclear generating station and the allowable emissions for a uranium mine. It shows the risks associated with the construction of these power plants as there is no long-term method for its disposal. It states that there is complexity in estimating the construction, maintenance and operation costs of nuclear power plants for future projects.
