Bulletin editor discusses nuclear energy on MotherJones.com

Jonas Siegel was one of four expert panelists featured in Mother Jones's Blue Marble Blog discussion on the future of nuclear energy. Siegel is the editor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and has written about issues relating to nuclear weapons and energy for the past five years.

Asked to argue for the anti-nuclear viewpoint in this debate, Siegel suggests that despite its potential, "nuclear energy has not overcome a range of risks--safety, nuclear proliferation, and waste--to sustain its growth in the marketplace."

Highlights of Jonas Siegel's portion of the conversation as well as the entire discussion on the future of nuclear energy can be found on the Mother Jones website.
