An Insider's View of Nuclear EnergyBook - 2007
Fossil fuels power our modern society. We are blessed with every modern convenience imaginable. Many Americans are enjoying the "American Dream." Life for most of us is pretty good. Recently we have experienced some terrorist attacks that are designed to destroy our lives as well as our lifestyle. The attacks on 9-11 were the worst. In addition to these terrorists attacks we have experienced a disruption in our petroleum supply. This disruption in our oil supply was actually just a hiccup, yet this hiccup caused a rather dramatic increase in the price of fuel. It is frightening to note that the Arab nations who supply us with petroleum either have direct ties to terrorism or have large numbers of people within their borders who do. It is quite clear that we need another energy source. Petroleum is a limited resource. With petroleum supplies on the decrease and with terrorism and hostile feelings toward the United States on the increase, it is only a matter of time before we experience some major hardships caused by our dependence on Arabian oil. We need to start now to loosen our dependence on foreign oil. The only source of power that can free us is Nuclear Energy. Most Americans are afraid of nuclear technology and do not trust people who support this technology. Who should you trust to advise you on energy matters? Who would you trust more, a filthy rich Arab Sheik who is sympathetic to terrorist causes or a loyal American who has worked in the nuclear industry for 16 years? When I worked for the government, I had a security clearance. The U.S. government had faith in my integrity; maybe you can trust me too. No doubt, you have heard many negative things about Nuclear Energy. I would like to tell you the good things about Nuclear Energy. I think that you will discover, as I have, that the good far outweighs the bad.
