Rate this:
America hasn't built a nuclear power plant in thirty years. Is that due to a right-headed concern over health and environmental dangers, or an unfounded timidity that puts us behind the rest of the world? This CNBC Original documentary explores the issue, which, despite rising support for nuclear energy, remains divisive. Guiding viewers through the basic workings of a nuclear facility, the video examines current roadblocks to a revitalized nuclear industry - including uncertainties over waste disposal and the possibility of terrorist attacks on power stations. The thriving French nuclear industry is also a major topic. Expert guests include Dale Klein, chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and Ward Sproat of the U.S. Department of Energy.
