Argument: Nuclear energy can help supply the poor world with needed electricity
- Max Schulz. "Nuclear Power Is the Future". Wilson Quarterly. Fall, 2006 - "the developing world will greatly benefit if granted access to cheap, reliable sources of energy. According to the United Nations, 2.4 billion people lack access to modern energy service for cooking and heating. Roughly 1.6 billion—about a quarter of the world’s population, including most of sub-Saharan Africa—have no access to electricity at all.
- Nuclear power alone is positioned to help meet the world’s burgeoning energy demand and supply electricity to the power-starved areas of the world in a manner that safeguards the environment. It alone can raise standards of living on every continent while emitting no pollutants or greenhouse gases. It is the best candidate among many to help raise more than a billion people out of darkness and grinding poverty, and to do so in a way that does no harm, but only good."
