Nuclear power has a checkered history that includes the Chernobyl disaster, Three Mile Island, and the more recent incident after the earthquake in Japan. Advocates, however, point to advantages such as zero carbon emissions and cite the example of France, which produces over 75 percent of its electricity from nuclear power and is the world’s largest exporter of electricity due to its very low cost of generation. Join us as we evaluate the pros and cons of this controversial source of power.
