No Nukes

There is a lot of interesting language in some of the draft negotiating documents that are being passed around between parties right now. One fragment that caught my eye was the stipulation in one of the documents to disallow for any "emission reductions generated from nuclear facilities to meet their quantified emission limitation and reduction commitments."

Keeping in mind that there are drawbacks and some type of degradation inherent in all types of energy production and the very real, very sticky problem of nuclear waste disposal, why take nuclear energy off the table completely? It is surprising that some of the industrial powers such as the U.S. and France would back any proposal that eliminated the possibility of counting nuclear energy and "clean". I have always been conflicted about nuclear but given our options, this still sounds surprising. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.
