Uranium and Nuclear Power: the Role of Exploration Information in Framing Public Policy

Charles F. Mason from the University of Wyoming investigates the dynamics of an increased demand for uranium following an expansion of total nuclear capacity installed.

Looking forward to the potential expansion in demand for uranium, it is important that society be mindful about past mistakes. In particular, Charles F. Mason warns that policies may induce levels of industrial activity failing to fully capture all potential social gains.
