J.A. Halkema, MSEE Biography

Title:
Former Executive Board Member at Brown Boveri Nederland
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“Western governments are proving astonishingly slow to face up to the four-pronged energy crisis that lies ahead and which could in due course engulf them…

[W]ith the one really major source of clean energy, nuclear power, being held back in most countries by political pressures…

Yet the plain truth about the world’s energy future is that the massive electric power that industry and 21st-century life need will have to come increasingly from nuclear energy if it is not to come from coal, oil and gas.”
