Van Snyder, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, JPL, Mathematician: Popular discussions about nuclear power eventually get around to at least one of five objections: It's not safe; no one knows what to do about waste; it's too expensive; it leads to nuclear weapons proliferation; or there isn't enough uranium. All of these objections are baseless. It is clearly obvious that nuclear power in the form of safe fast-neutron breeder reactors with on-site electrorefining must be a necessary (and economical) part of the American energy economy. Should the United States develop the technology, or buy it from France, Russia, China and India?
