KEITH CRAIN: There's only so much oil in the ground

June 2005
Crain's Detroit Business;6/27/2005, Vol. 21 Issue 26, p8
The article presents information regarding the crisis of oil and the need to divert attention towards the use of nuclear energy. China is making a rigorous use of oil and attention has to be drawn in this issue. Airplanes will probably be the last user of oil, simply because there is no substitute for jet fuel. 80 percent of electricity in France is generated by nuclear power plants. There is no doubt that nuclear power requires a high level of precautions. Nuclear power is a whole lot safer today than it was a few decades ago. A national energy policy is needed very urgently. It has to include a discussion of how nuclear power should be used in the U.S.
