Another Reason for Nuclear Energy
After looking at some of the comments on nuclear energy on Brad DeLong's blog, I came to the following conclusion:
If there is no safe dose of radiation and if we should be concerned about radiation that might be released in the indefinite future…
…we must use up of all that dangerous radioactive material as soon as poossible. In the absense of fission, each uranium atom will emit 50 MeV of radiation. The fission products will emit half that.
