Europe Takes a New Look at Nuclear

| Friday January 6th, 2006 | 6 Comments

According to The Christian Science Monitor the European Union’s Energy Commissioner stated last Wednesday that, Europe needs to “look at nuclear power and at renewable energy,” to reduce dependence on imports.
With Russia cutting the flow of natural gas into Europe, nuclear is getting some new positive press. Some are even arguing that in order to meet CO2 reductions mandated by the Kyoto Protocol, nuclear is the only option.
Though renewables are also getting attention it is clear that, 20 years after Chernobyl, nuclear is once again being actively pursued in Europe.

    If you would like to learn more about nuclear power, a good place to start would be the new techno-thriller novel about the American nuclear power industry, written by a longtime nuclear engineer (me). This book provides an entertaining and accurate portrait of the US nuclear industry today and how a nuclear accident would be handled. It is called “Rad Decision”, and is at RadDecision.blogspot.com. There is no cost to readers.
    While there are some differences in approach between the western countries with regards to nuclear energy, much is also the same.
