Richard Rhodes and Denis Beller describe the need for nuclear power.The world needs more energy. Energy multiplies human labor, increasing productivity. It builds and lights schools, purifies water, powers farm machinery, drives sewing machines and robot assemblers, stores and moves information. World population is steadily increasing, having passed six billion in 1999. Yet one-third of that number — two billion people — lack access to electricity. Development depends on energy, and the alternative to development is suffering: poverty, disease, and death.
