As resources, particularly fossil fuels, become strained, energy (despite its known shortcomings) must be considered as an alternative. This book presents an objective view of energy as an important source for future energy needs. It discusses various types of reactors, the fuel cycle, the problem of waste disposal, reactor accidents, safety and new types of reactors that are being considered, and the cost of electricity from power. Additional themes include the problem of weapons, their storage, and, very important, their disposal as arsenals are pared down.
