ABSTRACT
Deals with the decision of U.S. President Jimmy Carter to delay the development of plutonium as a future source of nuclear energy, which he will state in a summit conference to be held in London, England. Report that his decision to put plutonium on the shelf, for the time being at least, as a source of nuclear energy, causes suspicion and anxiety all the way from Japan to Iran and Brazil; Views of several countries that the United States is trying to create a capitalistic monopoly of nuclear fuel for itself; View that the Carter drive is directed against plutonium, not uranium, the conventional fuel used in most nuclear reactors.
