Developed from the Global Foundation's International Conference on Environment and Nuclear Energy, held in October 1997, this volume examines the impact of nuclear energy on regional and global environmental issues under a variety of scenarios. These include competition in deregulated energy environments, constraints levied upon use of fossil energy, and possible expansion of nuclear power into energy sectors beyond the generation of electricity, process heat, and fuels production. It also assesses the overall role of nuclear energy in meeting future energy needs arising from growing world populations and economic development.

Editorial Reviews

Contains papers presented at the February 1997 conference. A summary of the conference is presented in three essays at the beginning of the book, including a synopsis of the remarks made during the conference's conclusion. Twenty contributions are arranged in sections on basic requirements for an acceptable global nuclear energy future; global energy challenges arising from the demands of industrialization of the regions with large populations; nuclear energy--economic, political, and environmental considerations; and energy future of the world. Together with the examination of the environment and nuclear energy, the role of nuclear energy in meeting future energy needs of the growing world population and economic development is also assessed.
