One reason nuclear energy is less popular than other forms of energy, Poneman says, is because a country building a nuclear reactor must enter a 100-year customer relationship with a separate country that enriches uranium or it must enrich its own uranium. An Assured Nuclear Fuel Services Initiative would ensure that countries would not need to enrich their own uranium and prevent enrichment for nuclear weaponry, he said. If this program ran effectively, Poneman writes, “any assertions that a country ‘needs’ to build its own commercial enrichment plant to ensure a reliable supply of enriched uranium for commercial nuclear power reactors would then be far less credible. Many environmental conservation organizations, such as the The Nature Conservancy, are now recognizing nuclear energy’s ability to produce large amounts of energy without emitting a single molecule of carbon, said Poneman.
