The probability of a grand bargain in Canada on nuclear energy and carbon emissions is looking more and more likely every day:
As I and others have pointed out, emissions from Ontario electricity generation were 12 million tonnes less in 2006 than in 2000, chiefly because 4 nuclear reactors have come back into service since 2003. Did the anti-nuke crowd weigh these massive emission reductions against the relatively small and totally manageable radioactive waste problem and decide to abandon their theological opposition to nuclear power?An interesting question. Be sure to check in with our friend Steven Aplin periodically on the situation in Canada.
