According to my colleague in media relations, Steve Kerekes, 60 Minutes is putting the finishing touches on a report on the French nuclear energy industry. Though it won't run this Sunday, look for it to air sometime in the next few weeks.
For more on the French nuclear program, which provides 80% of that nation's electricity, visit the World Nuclear Association.
UPDATE: My boss, Scott Peterson, sent in the following note:
Let's not forget the the French program is modeled after the U.S. program, using U.S. technology as its base. Despite the fact that the French have gone forward with a state electricity company to build 57 (?) reactors, the U.S. still produced more electricity from nuclear energy than France and Japan combined!NEI also maintains a library of nuclear statistics.
