HISTORICAL EVOLUTION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS. In , Albert Einstein and Leo Szilard warned of developments in Nazi Germany and urged President Franklin D. Roosevelt to begin a research program on nuclear fission for military use.3 The Manhattan Project4 was established in to develop, produce, and test the first “atomic bombs,” and J. Robert Oppenheimer was appointed director. This chapter examines the ethical and social responsibilities concerning energy production and use. The prediction that nuclear power will become the world's leading electricity source seems to be wrong. Instead of the booming construction of nuclear power plants in .
The long term effects on the energy and power market could be substantial as it opens up the possibility of a range of new business models that include building clusters of modular plants that can share costs like engineering, personnel training and security while still exhibiting some of the redundancy, series production economies, and. Nuclear power may just be the most important solution to our search for clean, sustainable energy sources. Although wind and solar can contribute to our energy mix, we need a reliable source to meet large-scale energy demands and break our dependence on fossil fuels. However, most people are wary, if not downright afraid, of nuclear power. Given nuclear disasters such as .

Bibliography of the social effects of nuclear power (). Vancouver: Policy and Long-term Planning, British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority, (OCoLC) Social effects of building and operating nuclear power plants result from impacts upon (1) socially-valued aspects of the physical environment and (2) the social structure itself.
Sudden, temporary population growth during construction may strain financial and organizational resources of rural areas. Social impacts of nuclear power are significant but difficult to quantify, as there is no consensus on a method.
The first part of this chapter presents a review of the advantages and drawbacks of nuclear power compared to other power generation sources, Cited by: 5. Nuclear reactors and power generation After being used to develop military weapons during World War II (WWII), nuclear energy from fission was tamed to be used for peaceful purposes, including for power generation in nuclear power plants.
The mostly widely used nuclear reactor type in a power plant is the light water reactor (PWR).File Size: KB. This is a list of books about nuclear are non-fiction books which relate to uranium mining, nuclear weapons and/or nuclear power. American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J.

Nuclear weapon - Nuclear weapon - The effects of nuclear weapons: Nuclear weapons are fundamentally different from conventional weapons because of the vast amounts of explosive energy they can release and the kinds of effects they produce, such as high temperatures and radiation.
The prompt effects of a nuclear explosion and fallout are well known through data gathered from the attacks on. nuclear power generation, which is based on small modular reactors, and a brief description of the theoretical reactors that are expected to be built in the future.
Section four discusses the costs of building a nuclear power plant and the economic competitiveness of nuclear power compared with other sources of generation.

Nuclear energy fulfils three of the main objectives that should be pursued for a steady development: (1) It does not emit Greenhouse gases.
(2) It is the cheapest produced energy. (3) It guarantees a security in its supply due to the fact, among others, that it is not conditioned by external factors.
