Breeder Reactor Impact Eyed WASHINGTON (UPI) - A U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Atomic Energy Commission must prepare a report on the environmental impact of breeder nuclear reactors, which may supply most of the nation's electricity by the year 2000. The appeals court said the anticipated effects of the breeder reactor program on the environment "are among the most significant, and the most controversial, of all federal programs," and in the absence of an environmental report major technical decisions will be made "without reflecting environmental concerns." The AEC has said that by the year 2000, liquid metal fast bieeder reactors could be producing as much electricity as is now produced in the entire country by all methods. The breeder reactor differs from Ihe nuclear reactors currently in use in that it makes its own new fuel, preserving the rare supply of uranium 235, a fuel for nuclear power plants. The decision came in a suit filed by the Sierra Club and the Committee for Nuclear Responsibility. The AEC said no environmental report was need ed because the breeder reactor program is still in its infancy. Quaker Claims World Dependent On His Tax Form GREENSBORO, N.C.
