It is nuclear power, with its greater fuel resources using existing technologies, that may be able to stabilize the energy sector in the twenty-first century on an environmentally safe basis. The competitive advantages of this type of energy production are commonly known. Here I would like to focus on history, however: specifically those very joyous predictions that were made with regard to the rates of development of the nuclear energy sector in the 1960s.

PROCESS In 2002 Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham recommended to President Bush that DOE should go forward with developing an application to construct the Yucca Mountain repository. The president accepted that recommendation and forwarded it to Congress. As the Waste Policy Act provides, the host state, Nevada, could refuse to accept the repository, a veto that could be overridden by the Congress. Nevada did veto the recommendations, and finally the Congress Copyright © National Academy of Sciences.
