Nuclear power in the United States has had to fight against well funded and well organized anti-nuclear power organizations and political leaders who relied on them for votes. Incredibly, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding back development of advanced nuclear power technologies by making licensing very difficult to nearly impossible. In the 1960s a nuclear plant could be licensed in less than five years. Now the NRC says licensing new technologies could take more than a quarter of a century. North American companies are taking their new technologies to Asia to develop and license. Russia, China and other countries are doing just the opposite. They are moving ahead as fast as possible to develop new nuclear technologies. How can American citizens let this happen?
