Wade Allison - Radiation and Reason. A list of the pros and cons of nuclear energy is straightforward; we need it, it is safe, but people are frightened of it. But the need to replace fossil fuels with another large base-load source is widely understood and its safety has been demonstrated many times.
(Eric Jelinski, A Koven, J Kim, J Pellazar, L Wu, M Tzolov, S Mulam, P Ottensmeyer) Canada - Closing the CANDU nuclear fuel cycle29.Apr.2016
A Koven, J Kim, J Pellazar, L Wu, M Tzolov, S Mulam, E Jelishik and P Ottensmeyer outline a path for Canada to close the CANDU nuclear reactor fuel cycle: Currently, CANDU nuclear reactors in Canada utilize less than 1% of the potential energy in fresh fuel bundles before storing the remainder as nuclear ‘waste’ at on-site nuclear waste management facilities. With the modified PUREX processing system, it is economically possible to close the fuel cycle by extracting and converting the remaining 99% to usable energy. Canada is an excellent example for how scientists, engineers, managers, and regulators need to work together for outstanding results of using nuclear energy. The world must follow this example.
CANDU Nuclear Reactors, Bruce Nuclear Power Station: Here are two videos and a short text explaining CANDU nuclear reactors, fission, fusion, and Bruce Nuclear Power Stations, the world's largest nuclear electric generating facility in 2015.
