Nuclear Energy production

Did you know that nuclear energy accounts for more energy produced than the average individual believes?

As of 2004, nuclear power provided 6.5 percent of the world's energy and 15.7 percent of the world's electricity. The U.S., France, and Japan accounted for 57 percent of the nuclear electricity generated world-wide. Nuclear energy accounts for about 19 percent of the total electricity generated in the United States, which is almost comparable to all of the electricity used in California, Texas, and New York combined. In France, nuclear power is the most widespread, supplying 80 percent of the country's electricity.
