The Anti Nuclear Litany
Can nuclear energy become a viable alternative to fossil fuels? Almost all of French electricity is generated in nuclear plants, as is half of the electricity in Ukraine, Sweden and Belgium, a third
Nuclear fissile fuels worldwide reserves
The energy crisis is a fact, the reserves of fossil fuels are almost depleted and prices are growing dramatically. Unfortunately, renewable sources will not solve the problem. Almost 100% of
