A Brighter Tomorrow takes a proactive and, at times, provocative look at nuclear power. It argues that the United States and indeed the world must increasingly rely on nuclear power for electricity in the twenty-first century. Senator Pete V. Domenici (R-New Mexico) argues that after weighing the costs and benefits of other forms of energy production, including oil, gas, coal, and renewables such as wind, solar, and hydro, nuclear power must be a major contributor toward reducing the world’s dependence on increasingly scarce and perilously political supplies of oil and gas. Domenici presents a compelling case for nuclear power’s role in providing clean and safe electricity to stem the tide of global warming and environmental disaster.
