Survey: Strong overall support in U.S. for nuclear, but with concerns
Results of the American Climate Perspectives Survey 2022 conducted by the climate-focused organization ecoAmerica suggest that the overall national support for research into advanced nuclear energy and for nuclear energy in general are continuing five-year upward trends. However, according to the survey, fewer than half of women responding to the survey support nuclear power. In addition, public concerns about nuclear-related waste disposal, health and safety, and weaponization remain high.

Atomic Complex is a worldwide political history of the development of nuclear energy from its military use in the 1940s to its peaceful uses today. But, equally important, the book is also the personal memoir of Bertrand Goldschmidt, a man who was in the forefront of the effort to harness energy from the atom and who remains active today in his attempts to educate the public about the benefits of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. Atomic Complex tells the story of the development of nuclear explosives and nuclear energy from the viewpoint of a scientist turned statesman.
