On 2 January 2006, the Financial Times published an article by Thomas Catan titled Dispute likely to boost arguments for nuclear power.
It looks like I am not the only one who thinks that the development of favorable opinions about new nuclear power projects is a logical result of the controversy over Russian natural gas supplies.
If your country has power supplied by locally operated nuclear reactors, it is very hard to be forced into action because of a threat to your fuel supplies.
The same can be said for smaller decision making bodies than countries; it is certainly possible to build reactor power systems that are small enough for individual cities, villages, industrial parks and even buildings.
Time for another shameless plug of Adams Atomic Engines, Inc.
