Texas and the Future of Nuclear Energy

On Sunday night, 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft mentioned that France had managed to build 58 nuclear reactors in a country the size of Texas. Coincidentally, less than 24 hours later, the Wall Street Journal fronted a story about how TXU, a company that recently abandoned plans to build 8 coal-fired power plants, was now planning on building some of the largest commercial nuclear reactors in the world.

Now that story about Texas and nuclear energy is creating some other conversations. Click here for a post from Slouching Toward Serfdom, and then here to listen to a discussion of TXU's plans on the latest episode of the Atomic Show.

UPDATE: More from Marketplace.
