Public Support for Nuclear Energy A new report by the California Council on Science and Technology says California needs to double its energy production by the year 2050 to meet the demand of a growing population while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 80 percent below 1990 levels. Nuclear power is currently the only source of energy production that can both meet the state's increasing energy demands while reducing emissions. But, according to a statewide survey the Public Policy Institute of California released this week, public support for nuclear power is dropping following the meltdown in Fukushima, Japan. We'll speak with Burt Richter, an author of the CCST study and professor of physical science at Stanford University. We'll also speak with Mark Baldassare, director of the PPIC statewide survey.
