Although this article is two years old, it lays out the arguments pro and con in a clear fashion. Links to sources for the information would have been helpful, but such is not the practce of the WSJ, except in its blogs.
This is a good example of a Long News article that lays out the pros and cons of nuclear energy. My one minor gripe is just that I wish it was more clearly formatted, so that the pro- and con- sections could be more easily compared.
Well, certainly, it's an excellent article on whether to choose a nuclear option or not. But, so far I know, as one article mentioned recently, America is now producing 21% of its energy needs from this source. Nuclear energy, with all its limitations, is a requirement to handle the grid base load requirement for the long term.
Thanks Beth Wellington for posting this two-year-old story.
