Contesting the Future of Nuclear Power: A Critical Global Assessment of Atomic Energy is a 2011 book by Benjamin K. Sovacool, published by World Scientific. Sovacool’s book addresses the current status of the global nuclear power industry, its fuel cycle, nuclear accidents, environmental impacts, social risks, energy payback, nuclear power economics, and industry subsidies. There is a postscript on the Japanese 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The Future of Nuclear Power. An interdisciplinary MIT study. Professor richard k. lester.

Past, Present and Future: The Growth Of Nuclear Power. The accident at Chernobyl in 1986 prompted the creation of the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO), and revolutionized the IAEA approach to nuclear power plant safety.

Nuclear power is full of mind-bending theories, deep secrets, and the misdirection of public consciousness .

Nuclear power is full of mind-bending theories, deep secrets, and the misdirection of public consciousness, some deliberate, some accidental. The result of this fixation on bombs and fallout is that the development of a non-polluting, renewable energy source stands frozen in time.

At present, nuclear power is a proven technology which has provided more than 16% of world electricity supply. In the future of nuclear power, many different views are raised on its sustainable development, particularly to innovative reactors and fuel cycles. The Essay on Energy Development and Electricity Usage. In 2012, Hibbs co-authored with James Acton a report on Why Fukushima Was Preventable. vi THE FUTURE OF NUCLEAR POWER IN CHINA. The future of nuclear power. Since 2011, Hibbs has led a project at Carnegie concerning the future of China’s nuclear energy program and its nuclear fuel cycle policies. In 2014, Hibbs authored a study on Turkey’s poli-cies concerning the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and the Nuclear Suppliers Group as part of a project called Turkey’s Nuclear Future.

Nevertheless, nuclear power proponents claim that the technology of nuclear power plant construction and of the disposal of radioactive wastes has markedly improved, and should now alleviate most concerns. New generations of reactors, we are told, enormously reduce the environmental risks and lessen the economic costs. The following article on The Future of Nuclear Power by Robert D. Furber, James C. Warf, and Sheldon C. Plotkin, scientists with a long history of addressing this issue, seeks to lay bare the realities of nuclear power. Although much more difficult to read than the typical MR article, we encourage all of our readers to study it closely.

This book examines various aspects of nuclear power and the construction and design of nuclear powered plants.

Newly conceived, safer reactor designs are being built in the United States (and around the world) to replace the 104 obsolete operating nuclear power reactors in this country alone. The designs--which once seemed exotic and futuristic--are now 40 years old, and one by one these vintage Generation II plants will reach the end of productive service in the next 30 years.The Future of Nuclear Power examines the advanced designs, practical concepts, and fully developed systems that have yet to be used. This book introduces readers to the traditional, American system of units, with some archaic terms remaining in use. Ideal for students and teachers interested in the technology of energy production in the next 100 years, this brand-new, full-color resource provides clear explanations of the terms and expressions used almost exclusively in nuclear science and the direction in which nuclear power is expected to go.
