"Nuclear Energy in this Century, A Bird in the Hand"

This presentation reviews the past half-century of nuclear energy from one person’s point of view, fully recognizing likely errors in fact and perception. It also takes a look at the coming 50 years of our enterprise. The future will demand a lot from nuclear technology, given the decline in the availability of cheap fossil fuels and the expected rising need for energy. We can supply safe and reliable energy for thousands of years, if such is necessary. Uncertainty remains in the short term regarding the support of the people and of the governments who serve them.
