- rely on an abundant resource that is available domestically, thus reducing our dependence on foreign sources
- provide no emissions of CO2, which concerns many people about the potential impact on global warming (a topic which is debatable, but which will be taken as given for now)
- provide relative price stability over time, thus reducing economic disruptions due to price fluctuations as we have been discussing here
- be as safe, if not safer, than conventional energy sources from coal or petroleum based sources.
Interested? Then let’s consider building more nuclear power reactors.
