A Marshall Plan For Atomic Power

Straight, Michael
June 1955
New Republic;6/27/55, Vol. 132 Issue 26, p8
The article discusses a plan for atomic power. The U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower summoned the great powers to work together to disarm in nuclear weapons and to pool their nuclear energy for the enrichment of the power-starved areas of the world. The smaller nations were enabled through the U.S. aid to take the first step toward nuclear energy development. But the next step of nuclear power does not follow. The power reactors are extremely expensive to build, to equip and to furnish with fuel. A second plan could follow a Presidential declaration that if Europe will unify its energy resources, the U.S. will help build and fuel Europe's new nuclear plants.
