Nuclear Development
Nuclear technology utilizes the energy emitted by divining the atoms of particular
components. This technology was first created in the 1940s, and during World War II research
originally emphasized in developing bombs. However, in the 1950s, attention shifted to the
peaceful utilization of nuclear fission, regulating it for power generation. Decades the
development of nuclear energy, the US government under different administrations still supports
the aspects of nuclear development. Nonetheless, it seems that the US and other relevant
authorities do not acknowledge some of the adverse social and economic implications of nuclear
development (Lindzen, 2006).
Social and Economic Cost of Nuclear Development
The social cost of nuclear development weighs on society and considers the risk of
proliferation. Fundamentally, the inclinations depicted in voting on nuclear energy licenses and
the risk opinions of the public give acumens into social costs of nuclear development and
decision making in energy policy. Studies show that social costs comprise of disutility instigated
by pointless anxiety because of misperceived susceptibilities regarding current reactors.
