Abstract

With our ever-increasing energy demands, the United States is in dire need of an expansion of greener technologies to provide power with a more environmentally friendly means of production. To solve this issue, we evaluated the current status of nuclear power generation and analyzed the possibility of a more dominant role within our society. This broad subject includes aspects of governmental policy, economics, public sentiment, and comparisons to other nations. Through research and surveys, we have determined that nuclear power has a significant role to play in the future of our nation.
