ABSTRACT
The author constructs a case for using nuclear power in the U.S. as a solution for increasing energy prices. She points out that France gets 75% of its energy from nuclear power plants, and has never had an accident. She says most Americans irrationally fear nuclear power because of the Jane Fonda movie "The China Syndrome," but in reality it is a very safe form of energy.
