Lasrick writes: John Mecklin introduces the rather provocative new issue of the Bulletin, which describes the decline and exit of the US from nuclear power. These articles in the Bulletin are free in the March/April Digital Journal, and include: How to close the US nuclear industry? Do nothing; The limited national security implications of civilian nuclear decline; Nuclear exit, the US energy mix, and carbon dioxide emissions; and The economics of a US civilian nuclear phase-out (by Amory Lovins). Also free is the Nuclear Notebook: US Nuclear Forces 2013. Good reading for energy wonks.
