The Go Nuclear, Inc. Cornerstone Document focuses on four major topics related to peaceful use of nuclear energy around the world. The topic ENERGY TODAY covers the technologies that have been used to generate electricity for large scale commercialuse from the beginning in the 1950s up to the present and will be used for several hundred years. Please read the Cornerstone Document to understand our purpose and goals for global public education.
Chen Kane and Miles Pomper - South Korea hopes to become a major exporter of nuclear plants. Its success in building up its domestic nuclear industry, winning a $20.4 billion contract to build four nuclear power plants in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), building Jordan’s first research reactor, and providing training programs and best practices to nuclear newcomer states indicates that established vendors should take this determination seriously.
Wade Allison - Radiation and Reason. A list of the pros and cons of nuclear energy is straightforward; we need it, it is safe, but people are frightened of it. But the need to replace fossil fuels with another large base-load source is widely understood and its safety has been demonstrated many times.
