Nuclear NowWith high probability, the countries of the world will face a decision between greatly expanded nuclear energy and a greatly reduced standard of living. Sooner or later the world will go for nuclear energy in a big way. If this is to be done in a technologically and economically optimal way, the changes will begin soon.

And there's the delusion that alternative energy sources, such as solar, wind and biomass, can replace fossil fuels and nuclear power while maintaining modern living standards. Widespread faith in these myths has inhibited the development of a realistic energy policy.
