Cochran and Holdren contributed little to actual development of nuclear power in the United States, mainly criticized it.: This NPR interview addresses a topic that is faulty from the beginning. Can nuclear power contribute to saving the world from catastrophic man-made global warming? Nuclear power can not and will not be expanded far enough to displace fossil fuels significantly for many decades. Whatever nuclear construction is accomplished will hardly impact climate change since it is mostly natural. Nuclear power has its own reasons to be promoted, namely lots of energy for a very long time and better for the environment.
