Canadian Points of View: Nuclear Power;3/31/2020, p2
The article presents an argument for nuclear power. The author argues that nuclear power is an economic and environmentally sound alternative to energy provided by fossil fuels. Particular focus is given to Canadian Deuterium Uranium (CANDU) reactors and to Canadian supplies of uranium as reasons to promote the expansion of nuclear power. It is the author's opinion that the economic and environmental benefits of nuclear energy make it an important component of climate change strategies.
