“Our reliance on electricity grows each day; electronic devices, electric cars, industrial production even our increasing reliance on home-aid devices. Our concerns about the impact of fossil fuels on our environment will limit its potential to provide the electrical energy we will require to support our needs. I am and have been convinced that nuclear power has an extremely important role to play in our lives, those of our children and in future of our planet. It has been my great blessing to be able to work in this industry. It is populated with people committed to providing safe nuclear power, people concerned with the safety and well-being of their fellow human beings, people of integrity, intelligence, hard working and dedicated. It is these attributes that will eventually win through and provide for mankind the promise of a bright and safe future.”
