In a refreshingly light and conversational style, A Case for Nuclear-Generated Electricity provides a unique context for understanding the use of energy in our society and the positive role nuclear power can play in enabling our modern civilization. We need energy to power the technology that supports human civilization. However, continued reliance on coal, oil and natural gas and hoping that green alternatives will magically save the day are by themselves unrealistic long-term solutions. This book advocates the use of nuclear energy for producing electricity. It speaks to the average American by addressing the current cultural bias against all technology and specifically nuclear technology. It shows technology, energy, and nuclear power in an enlightening context and examines our present energy use and future options. Heaberlin describes, for the layperson, nuclear science and power reactor engineering to demystify nuclear energy and directly address the key aspects of the public's fears regarding nuclear power and radioactive waste. He discusses the current status of nuclear power and its potential future. His key message is that it is important to allow nuclear energy to play a role in the progress of the human species.
