There is no quenching our need for energy. We are consuming all the resources at our disposal at an exponential rate. The need to change becomes increasingly more urgent with each passing year. We need to decrease our dependencies on fossil fuels. There is no denying the environmental harm caused by our consumption of fossil fuels and the economic and political problems around oil are ever present. It looks as though the only thing that will stop us is that someday these resources will be depleted and there are few things more certain than that. It is time to look to other sources and I believe that Nuclear power is the solution, which despite the destruction the word “Nuclear” insinuates is a clean and self-reliant source of energy. We have a tremendous problem today with energy. But we are blessed with a solution. It’s time we act on it.
