This book describes much of the internal debate over nuclear plant safety levels going on between the nuclear industry and its regulator at the time, the Atomic Energy Commission. Fermi-I: New Age for Nuclear Power edited by E. Pauline Alexanderson () explains how power companies formed a consortium to finance, build, and construct a liquid.   It´s a rather straightforward book with punctual questions and relatively short answers (3 pages max per question). I was interested in the fundamental aspect of the energy generation and its relevance regarding climate change (that´s like 25% of the book) but the theory behind nuclear energy is presented in a simple and not very engaging manner, and regarding Climate Change it didn´t /5(6).

Workers in the nuclear industry are also exposed to higher than normal levels of radiation, and as a result are at a higher risk of death from cancer at a rate similar to the that of Japanese nuclear bomb survivors (10). 6. Energy production. The nuclear power plants currently in existence provide about 11% of the world’s energy (11). However, nuclear energy production and nuclear waste disposal give rise to pressing ethical questions that society needs to face. This book takes up this challenge with essays by an international team of scholars focusing on the key issues of risk, justice, and democracy.

  Required reading for any aspiring journalist, nuclear policy analyst, or anyone interested in the history, this short book collects essays originally published in the New Yorker written about survivors of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan.

“If stupid hippies hadn't killed nuclear power, we'd have nuclear power plants, safer and cheaper than coal-fired plants, all over, and electric cars really would be zero emissions.” ― Penn Jillette, Presto!: How I Made Over Pounds Disappear and Other Magical Tales. In the United States, there are approximately nuclear power plants producing more than 20 percent of the country’s electricity.

Almost 80 percent of France’s electricity is generated through nuclear fission. Nuclear power plants have certain advantages: No fossil fuels are burned, and there are no combustion products, such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and [ ]. Nuclear Energy Is Extraordinary. Nuclear energy comes from splitting atoms in a reactor to heat water into steam, turn a turbine and generate electricity.

Ninety-five nuclear reactors in 29 states generate nearly 20 percent of the nation’s electricity, all without carbon emissions because reactors use.

Both the Nuclear Energy Agency and International Energy Agency have concluded that although nuclear power is a “proven low-carbon source of base-load electricity,” the industry will have to address serious concerns about cost, safety, and waste disposal if it is to play a significant role in addressing the climate-energy nexus.

Nuclear Energy: An Introduction to the Concepts, Systems, and Applications of Nuclear Processes, Eighth Edition, provides essential information on basic nuclear physics, systems and the applications of nuclear comprehensively covers Basic Concepts, Radiation and Its Uses, and Nuclear Power, providing students with a broad view of nuclear energy and science in a fast-paced format that.

Robert Oppenheimer (); The Angry Genie: One Man's Walk Through the Nuclear Age (); The Atom Besieged: Extraparliamentary Dissent in France and Germany ().

In the s and 80s, more than a hundred nuclear reactors were built in the United States. They promised abundant, safe, “clean” energy, free from the pollution associated with coal and other fossil fuels.

Today, most of those reactors remain in operation, in varying states of condition. Many. nuclear energy, the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom and released through fission, fusion, or these processes a small amount of mass is converted to energy according to the relationship E = mc 2, where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light (see relativity).The most pressing problems concerning nuclear energy are the possibility of an accident or systems.

This book addresses today’s important questions about nuclear energy by Nuclear energy has grown continuously since its inception – demonstrating increased performance and efficiency – and today is a major source of energy, Concern for the security of energy.

In December the Massachusetts Energy Office issued a study showing that because of the increased capital costs and lower-than-expected capacity of nuclear reactors, coal plants were as cheap as, or cheaper than, nuclear plants in New England.

At this point the capitalist stewardship of money parallels the Christian concern not to waste. Only nuclear energy is both a 24/7 baseload energy source like coal and natural gas, and also a low-carbon energy source like solar and wind. As such, nuclear energy is unique and irreplaceable.

Awareness increases support. As public awareness of nuclear energy’s benefits grows, so too does public support. With nuclear power, many countries can approach energy independence. Being "addicted to oil" is a major national and global security concern for various reasons. Using electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) powered by nuclear reactors, we could reduce our oil.

Nuclear Energy is one of the most popular texts ever published on basic nuclear physics, systems, and applications of nuclear energy. This newest edition continues the tradition of offering a holistic treatment of everything the undergraduate engineering student needs to know in a clear and accessible way.

Nuclear energy is produced when an atom's nucleus is split into smaller nuclei by the process called fission. The fission of large atoms, such as Uranium and Plutoniumproduces a methods for the storage and disposal of these wastes.

and there is concern that buried wastes. An informed look at the myths and fears surrounding nuclear energy, and a practical, politically realistic solution to global warming and our energy needs.

Faced by the world's oil shortages and curious about alternative energy sources, Gwyneth Cravens skeptically sets out to find the truth about nuclear s:   Originally perceived as a cheap and plentiful source of power, the commercial use of nuclear energy has been controversial for decades.

Worries about the dangers that nuclear plants and their radioactive waste posed to nearby communities grew over time, and plant construction in the United States virtually died after the early s. power, and now nuclear has outstripped coal in Western Europe.

There is thus no doubt that nuclear power stations are able to provide a large contribution to the world’s energy needs.

It has been objected that this program, while possible in principle, is unable to solve the energy crisis because of the limited supplies of uranium.

Office of Nuclear Energy, Science and Technology Washington, D.C. The History of Nuclear Energy Table of Contents Demand for electricity decreased and concern grew over nuclear issues, such as reactor safety, waste disposal, and other environmen-tal considerations.

Nuclear fuel is extremely dense. It’s about 1 million times greater than that of other traditional energy sources and because of this, the amount of used nuclear fuel is not as big as you might think. All of the used nuclear fuel produced by the U.S.

nuclear energy industry over the last 60 years could fit on a football field at a depth of less than 10 yards!. John Weaver. A new book published in July ; Robert S. Dutch, “Let there be light!”Nuclear Energy: A Christian Case, Eugene, Oregon: Wipf & Stock, addresses the nuclear energy debate in the light of our need to address Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.

This text is a wide-ranging, comprehensive and informative exploration of nuclear energy for the non-specialist.This expanded, revised, and updated fourth edition of Nuclear Energy maintains the tradition of providing clear and comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the subject, with emphasis on the explanation of trends and developments.

As in earlier editions, the book is divided into three parts that achieve a natural flow of ideas: Basic Concepts, including the fundamentals of energy, particle. Nuclear energy is safe and secure. Strict government regulations, continuous training by the industry, and enhanced security measures have combined to ensure safety inside and outside of America’s nuclear power plants Many fear that nuclear energy plants pose a safety hazard since they might emit radiation.
