Your Call 103008 The Future of Nuclear Power

Where does nuclear energy fit into our future? On the next Your Call we'll look at where Senators John McCain and Barack Obama stand on the future of nuclear. Many people have a vision of nuclear power frozen decades in the past by the disaster at Chernobyl and Three Mile Island. Has nuclear energy technology advanced as much as boosters say?
