Barry Brook, Faculty of Science, Engineering & Technology, U. of Tasmania, Australia & Staffan Qvist, Dept. of Physics and Astrophysics, Uppsala University, Sweden: This documents the excellent French and Swedish nuclear power plant construction programs in the 1960s to 1990s. It then extrapolates to a prediction that the whole world could be on 100 % nuclear power within 25 - 34 years. This must assume that the rest of the world has similar government support and cooperation, similar stable, honest leadership, sound economies, industrial capabilities, education systems, etc. and that the construction companies and nuclear fuel demands for France and Sweden can be quickly increased to those of the whole world. It assumes that the world will use the same nuclear technology as the Swedish and French programs of the 1970s to 90s. In reality, it may take several hundred years to replace 50% of fossil fuels with advanced nuclear technologies that still need development and testing.

John Shanahan, Editor of allaboutenergy.net, Civil Engineer, David Wojick, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, CFACT, Washington, D.C., Ph.D. Philosophy of Science and Mathematical Logic, B.Sc. Civil Engineering: Many nuclear power organizations and utilities have contributed to the terrible situation nuclear power is in by passively accepting unnecessary crippling criteria and demands of anti-nuclear organizations. These organizations can't be more pleased. A lot of the public and elected officials are in a state of deep seated fear and misguided understanding about radiation and nuclear power. Before a large new effort for nuclear power can be launched, many things must change. Nuclear organizations must solve real problems holding nuclear power back. With the right leadership, the nuclear industry in the West could be back on track in a few decades. But, this is most likely going to take longer.
