The effect of a nuclear energy expansion strategy in Europe on health damages from air pollution The capacity of nuclear energy to generate carbon-free electricity has put it back on the agenda despite the objections against nuclear energy, of which the main ones are the risks of accidents, proliferation, and long-term waste disposal. In June 2006, the Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands (SER) issued an advisory report “Naar een kansrijk en duurzaam energiebeleid” (06/10) (On to a…
