Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Pittsburgh. Professor Cohen was a staunch opponent of the so-called Linear no-threshold model (LNT) which postulates there exists no safe threshold for radiation exposure: We conclude that all the world's energy requirements for the remaining existence of life on Earth could be provided by breeder reactors without the cost of electricity rising by as much as 1% due to fuel costs. This is consistent with the definition of a "renewable" energy source.

D. Lightfoot, W. Manheimer, D. Meneley, D. Pendergast, G. Stanford: Nuclear fission energy is as inexhaustible as those energies usually termed "renewable", such as hydro, wind, solar and biomass. But unlike the sum of these energies, nuclear fission energy has sufficient capacity to replace fossil fuels as they become scarce. Uranium could power the world as far into the future as we are today from the dawn of civilization - more than 10,000 years ago. Fast reactors have distinct advantages in siting of plants, product transport and management of waste.
