At age 11, while in 7th grade, Kenneth Andrew Kienlen had a writing assignment for English class. He went to the library at the University of North Texas to do his own independent research. The following report is the result. His grandfather, Don Riley, was a pioneer in development of fast breeder reactors. So he may have had a little inspiration before going to the library. He did a superlative report in 7th grade. We wish government leaders would go to a library and make an attempt to learn about the importance of safe, reliable, affordable energy for the world for centuries to come, not just promote the latest trends. Kenneth went on to graduate from Texas A&M in nuclear engineering. We wish him the best in the future. Go Nuclear.
Daniel Meneley's summary of fossil fuel and nuclear energy sources for generating electricity for world needs is very succinct and complete.
India’s primary energy consumption more than doubled between 1990 and 2011 to nearly 25,000 PJ. India's dependence on imported energy resources and the inconsistent reform of the energy sector are challenges to satisfying rising demand.
