von Hippel, Frank – Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 1975
None of society's current sources of electricity are risk free. Fission, oil, and coal power all have the potential for triggering major social or environmental instabilities. The risks associated with nuclear-electric energy must be weighed against those of the alternatives. Suggestions for improving reactor safety are discussed. (BT)
