John Shanahan, civil engineer: Nuclear power in the United States has been fighting against well funded and well organized anti-nuclear power organizations and their political leaders. Incredibly, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is holding back development of advanced nuclear power technologies by making licensing unnecessarily slow and expensive. 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 and China are moving ahead as fast as possible to develop new nuclear technologies. How can American citizens let this happen?
