The below audio is the result of an investigation about the prospects for an American Nuclear Renaissance produced by BBC reporter Julian O’Halloran. Mr. O’Halloran’s report contains a few misconceptions – like the idea that it is only concern about climate change that is encouraging a new look at nuclear power and the idea that Mark Cooper is a reliable source of information about nuclear plant economics – but it is interesting and worth hearing. I like to look at my own situation from other people’s eyes, that is one reason why I like reading and listening to news reports from other countries that are about American topics.
