This 2008 report focuses on the role of nuclear power in meeting the challenges of providing energy and mitigating global climate change. It includes sections addressing economics, finance, infrastructure, and human resources related to nuclear power generation. It also considers major issues of concern involving radiation, safety, waste management, and proliferation of nuclear weapons. Generally supportive of nuclear power, the report concludes that nuclear power can contribute to slowing climate change, and that it will be up to individual nations to decide the mix of energy sources that best meets their needs. Appendices provide summaries of how the relationship between climate change and nuclear power is viewed by stakeholders in the United Kingdom, the United States, China, the Russian Federation, Poland, and Germany. An extensive bibliography is included.
