VI ~ Research into nuclear capability based on the MIT and other comparable studies shall be started immediately to determine feasibility for power generation for public use and for powering negative emission systems.

VII ~ Nuclear reactors, if determined to be suitable, shall be designed, manufactured and operationed to the highest safety standards possible. Designs and methods shall be standarized. An appropriate public education program shall be implemented to asuage fears.

VIII ~ Costs shall be allocated on a fair basis determined by past emissions and ability to contribute.
