dc.description.abstract Of the major players in the birth and growth of nuclear technology, France and the United States are two of the biggest. Their glaring differences in culture and political regimes, therefore, have resulted in two very different attitudes toward adoption and implementation of nuclear power. Through extensive literary research, cultural immersion and analysis of public perception, the French approach to nuclear power indicates a society more willing to incorporate it as a means of energy production. This trust has allowed nuclear power to relieve France of foreign energy dependence, and has had profound impacts on its waste production. This study proves that, if allowed to be more accessible while being handled in a safe and responsible manner, nuclear power has the potential for economic longevity and environmental sustainability. en_US
