Abstract:

Anti-nuclear activists managed to stop the nuclear industry once before, but nuclear energy is too important to America for this to be allowed to happen again. Despite activists' attempts to mislead the public with inaccurate or irrelevant information, nuclear energy is a proven, viable, economical, and environmentally sound solution to U.S. energy needs and legislative carbon constraints.
