Nuclear energy is efficient, clean

Email

When I begin teaching a new class on energy technology, I often start by writing a single word on the white board — scale.  We then look at the printed handouts that each student has received. They contain table 1.1 from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) which sets out total U.S. energy consumption in quadrillion British Thermal Units (quads). You need a big number like quads when you discuss energy for a whole country like the U.S. And the U.S.
