Favorite Quote

"Today 53 new nuclear power plants are under construction worldwide. Opponents say 'Haven't we learned anything? Why are we still playing with fire? The answer may be, 'Because we have to.' Nuclear power may be the only way for humanity and the Earth itself to survive."

Natalie Silverman, narrator
