RussTech Language Services, Inc. – a leading supplier of translation and interpreting services to the energy industry – is pleased to post the following link to a recent debate conducted under the auspices of the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) on whether or not nuclear energy can lead to energy independence in the United States:
This debate follows on the heels of a statement by the President of FAS, Charles D. Ferguson, regarding the need for nuclear power as part of the US energy mix.
Founded in 1945 by many of the scientists who built the first atomic bombs, FAS is devoted to the belief that scientists, engineers, and other technically trained people have the ethical obligation to ensure that the technological fruits of their intellect and labor are applied to the benefit of humankind. The founding mission was to prevent nuclear war. While nuclear security remains a major objective of FAS today, the organization has expanded its critical work at the intersection of applied science and security to include the issues of bio-security, building technologies, conventional arms sales monitoring, energy security, government secrecy, international science partnerships, learning technologies, and terrorism analysis. More than 65 Nobel science laureates have endorsed FAS as members of its Board of Sponsors.
