Summary
"In 2010, the United States approved the first new nuclear power plant in 32 years, heralding a "Nuclear Renaissance". But that was before the Fukushima accident in Japan renewed a fierce public debate over the safety and viability of nuclear power. As the nation stands at the crossroads of a possible Nuclear Renaissance, the atomic states of America inspires informed discussion on the safety, viability and future of nuclear power in the United States"--Container.
