Finally, it is past time for us to recognize our need to develop safe and effective use of nuclear energy. France relies on nuclear power for 78 percent of its electricity. Sweden and Korea each use nuclear energy to generate over 40 percent of their electricity. Yet here in America, we have not built a nuclear generator in over 30 years. This must change. Scientists at Oak Ridge have joined researchers across the globe as part of the ITER Project to develop the next generation of nuclear power Â clean, safe and emission-free fusion power. While this kind of energy is still decades away from commercial availability, it will be a big part of our future.This seems to be happening more frequently. Credit Instapundit with the link.
