April Nuclear Energy Facts Report Available

by Ted Rockwell

April, 2010

This is the latest edition of the Nuclear Energy Facts Report.  The Facts Report itself contains only facts that manifest in the physical world; no opinions, conclusions, recommendations, or attempts at consensus-building.  But we have found it helpful to precede the Facts Report with some explanatory material on energy production, and conclude with some comments on the historical context.

As always, we welcome input from readers.  This is not intended to be public relations document for the general public, but an interactive reference document, for people who work in, or report on, the energy production field.
