Produced by Dallas-based Bill Stokes Associates for the Atomic Industrial Forum, Inc., this film advocates the use of nuclear power as a solution to the world's growing energy needs. Nuclear experts address concerns raised by the public and by opponents, concluding that adopting nuclear power is the responsible choice. The commentary's point of view on the safety and beneficial effects of nuclear power plants may seem quaint, or even chilling, to a post Three Mile Island/Chernobyl/Fukushima Daiichi audience.

Formed in 1965, Bill Stokes Associates – later to be known as The Stokes Group - was a Dallas based production company that made industry and promotional films for a range of clients spanning from Mary Kay Cosmetics to the United States Navy. In 1966, Bill Stokes Associates, provided sound stage and production services for the film "Bonnie and Clyde." Bill Stokes has been honored by the Dallas Producers Association with a Film Pioneer Award.
