i'm not sure what you mean by "recent trends" but it does seem clear that the waste generated by nuclear power, problematic though it may be, is less problematic than the warming that may be occuring as a result of burning fossil fuels for powerWhere do you see the demand coming from? Medical?
Do you think demand for nuclear power will increase given recent trends?
france has been getting 2/3 of it's power from nukes for a long time with a very good safety record
i think it is gradually being seen as the lesser of 2 evils and the demand will surely kick in someday, when that will be is another question
