Rubin interviewed by News Center Maine about nuclear energy

Jonathan Rubin, director of the University of Maine Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center and professor at the School of Economics, spoke to News Center Maine about the underlying issues in relying on nuclear energy for decarbonization. “I think siting of public assets, either wind turbines or nuclear plants or wastewater treatment plants, all these things they may be privately owned or publicly owned, but they serve a public good in some sense. Those are really challenging things, and I don’t know if it’s possible to site a new one,” Rubin said.
