Green Credentials | AREVA North America: Next Energy Blog


In an opinion piece that appeared in the Washington Post today, Slate columnist, Nina Shen Rastogi asks “What are nuclear energy’s green credentials?”

And after discussing the issues, Rastogi concludes:

“The Lantern doesn’t find herself particularly freaked out by atomic energy. The long-term waste conundrum seems more pressing: After all, isn’t the notion that you don’t bequeath problems to your descendants a major tenet of environmentalism? At the same time, global warming is itself a dire legacy, and every energy technology has its pitfalls. So if nuclear power can play a role in cooling our planet, the Lantern thinks it deserves to stay on the table.”
