About this book

The senior Senator from New Mexico, Pete V. Domenici, has written a thoughtful assessment of the progress Americans have made in their efforts to bring the benefits of nuclear power to mankind. He outlines what went wrong and why, and in this noble quest, what we must now do to recover from and repudiate past blunders. Senator Domenici has been called Congress' chief apostle for nuclear power and in this book, he shares his vision and passion for a renewed commitment, by this nation, and the rest of the world, to the dreams that nuclear energy can help us fulfill. It is also a book about what kind of world our grandchildren could inhabit if we fail in making and keeping such a commitment.

A thoughtful and enjoyable book by the Senate's leading energy expert. A Brighter Tomorrow makes a compelling case that nuclear power (along with renewables and coal) must be one of the main energy sources for the planet by the end of the century. It tells a fascinating story of how we came to where we are, including all the mistakes along the way, and why and how to move ahead. Highly recommended.--Burton Richter, Ph.D.
