ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the risks of using nuclear energy as power resources in the U.S. It says that investment in nuclear energy is risky as indicated why Wall Street has chosen not to be part of it, and nuclear power plants are stated terrorist targets aside from carrying serious risk of their own. Moreover, it notes that nuclear power will not reduce dependency on foreign energy, its generated electricity does not compare favorably with sustainable energy sources, and there is no good means of nuclear waste disposal. However, it suggests that various problems must be resolved first for nuclear power to succeed, including major cost cuts, avoiding serious accidents, and resolving the nuclear waste storage and disposal issues.
