Salt Lake City, Utah – President Obama has called nuclear power plants a "necessity." Closer to home, Governor Herbert says Utahns shouldn't be afraid of discussing nuclear energy. So Wednesday on RadioWest we're doing just that. Is a "nuclear renaissance" the way to wean America off of fossil fuels and combat global warming as some environmentalists contend - or are the costs associated with waste disposal and with building water thirsty plants in the desert too high?

  • April 4-17, journalist Matthew Wald will teach an on-line class on nuclear energy. For more details and to register, visit The New York Times Knowledge Network
