The White House science adviser on Thursday acknowledged that the US
likely would build new nuclear power plants, but added that challenges to
embracing nuclear power remain.

     "We are probably going to see some new nuclear power plants in this
country," said John Holdren, the President Barack Obama's science adviser and
director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. 

     Those new plants will be of a new generation and have better safety
characteristics, Holdren told an annual science policy forum that the
American Association for the Advancement of Science held in Washington.
