In the early s, when the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission believed high-grade uranium ores to be in short supply domestically, it considered extracting uranium for nuclear weapons from the abundant U.S. supply of fly ash from coal burning. In , China began exploring such extraction, drawing on a pile of some million metric tons of brown-coal fly ash at Xiaolongtang in Yunnan. "A guide for the perplexed citizen that provides cogent arguments from both sides of this complex issue."―Science News. With over half the American public living near a reactor, nuclear power is one of the most urgent issues of contemporary life/5(4). This book depicts a lot of racism and disregard for human life, so that might bother some readers. I still have many pages to read, but feel the book will remain interesting to the end. I highly recommend this book for those that know little about the production of plutonium here in the US and in Russia during the s to early s: Atomic Awakening offers an essential look at nuclear power and how it will overcome its negative connotations to shape our century. (Scientific American Book Club Selection)The world of science education in America would be an altogether different one if its textbooks were as readable as James Mahaffey's latest on nuclear technology. (Charleston Post-Courier, Michael S. Smith II)/5().
If youve ever thought nuclear power was a good idea, just read this book and youll be dissuaded. It is horrifying, killing people right now in the most horrific ways, and will be killing people for generations to comesome of the birth defects wont start to manifest until another 40 or 50 generations/5. out of 5 stars America the Powerless: Facing Our Nuclear Energy Dilemma Reviewed in the United States on Decem An absolutely great book for understanding this complex issue and explaining why the US needs to develop more nuclear power s: 4. Nuclear power regulation is highly centralized in the federal government when nuclear safety and radiological hazards are at issue. States may address the financial capability of power companies to dispose of waste and may define state tort liability for injuries suffered at nuclear facilities.

It is the Committee's opinion, based upon our experience, that, more recently, an inability of states, that are members of regional compact commissions, to site low-level radioactive waste facilities has also harmed nuclear power's public image.
