Smashing Atoms: The History of Uranium and Nuclear Power

• Incredibly energy-dense, with a single uranium pellet (~1g) being equivalent to 1 ton of coal, 120 gallons of oil, or 17,000 cubic feet of natural gas.
• Global energy consumption is expected to double by 2050.
• Nuclear power is greenhouse gas-free and has lower lifecycle pollution than even wind, solar, or hydro.
