The World Nuclear Association Weekly Newsletter for February 23, 2018 reports that the USA is going to start research on fast reactors again. The United States had a tremendous lead in the 1970s. Presidents Carter and Clinton, President Obama's Science Advisor John Holdren, Natural Resources Defense Council's Thomas Cochran, and Princeton's Frank Von Hippel worked hard to close fast reactors in the USA. The United States may restart research on fast reactors after losing three decades of progress to the Russians and Chinese. Good for Russia and China. Very unfortunate for the USA. The world needs all the energy that it can get from fossil fuels and nuclear. With no false obstacles in the way, the USA could be self-sufficient and an exporter of energy and energy technologies to make a better world for people and nature.
