Nuclear in the New Decade by ProQuest


As people enter another new decade, it is interesting to review the progress that nuclear power has made over the first 10 years of the new millennium. Talk of a nuclear renaissance has become increasingly common in popular discussion, but opponents of the industry argue that this is mainly hype and lacking in real substance. It is clear that a lot has changed and in a relatively short period of time. The most obvious sign of this is the increased mentions of nuclear power in the mass media and often with a generally positive slant. So far as the anti-nuclear movement is concerned, it is looking increasingly marginalized. The argument for more nuclear power as a means of securing additional energy security of supply has also become increasingly important, particularly in those countries who perceive themselves as becoming increasingly reliant on supplies from geopolitically unstable or otherwise unattractive countries.
