Nuclear Options

August 1981
National Review;8/21/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 16, p975
The article considers the utilization of the expanded nuclear power option in Western Europe. If Western Europe were to utilize the expanded nuclear power option, they would be less vulnerable to interruptions of energy sources. Furthermore, creating a nuclear fuel reprocessing facility in Western Europe would insulate the region from potential energy supply interruptions. However, Norwegians are concerned that the expanded production will affect their way of life. Moreover, such production will increase the risk of oil-rig accidents.
