Mark Cooper, Ph.D., Senior Fellow for Economic Analysis, Institute for Energy and the Environment, releases paper on "Nuclear Safety and Nuclear Economics" at University of PittsburghIn the wake of a severe nuclear accident the attention of policymakers, regulators, and the public is riveted on the issue of nuclear safety. Scrutiny is so intense that it seems like the only thing that matters about nuclear reactors is their safety. Cooper's paper shows that in fact, and for good reason, the central tension throughout the 50-year history of commercial nuclear power in the United States has been the relationship between the safety and economics of nuclear reactors, tension that is far from resolved.GP0|#ed7f8cda-6065-4792-a26a-43cc5bc34d38;L0|#0ed7f8cda-6065-4792-a26a-43cc5bc34d38|Press Release;GTSet|#ab900a8a-233b-4478-b62d-e61857e186fb;GPP|#fce88a62-61b7-435e-b14b-0c9e11ca0a2c2014-06-02T04:00:00Z89
