This 2003 interdisciplinary report from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology “The Future of Nuclear Power” and its subsequent 2009 follow-up set the basis for what is needed to be done to ensure that the increased use of nuclear power can cut the projected 2050 carbon emissions by over 25%. This and the increased use of solar, wind, and other sustainable energies, combined with the gradual phasing out of carbon-producing fuels will hopefully ensure an effective response to best mitigate the worst effects of human-caused climate change. As this was published in 2003, it will give me a good basis to see what changes have been made, what is going well, and what needs to be done better.
