Anyways, nuclear power is the hot topic with a proposed nuclear power plant being discussed to power the oilsands. As expected, politicians are distancing themselves from this proposal as if it were radioactive. (that one I couldn't resist)
I think the facts are fairly straightforward. Nuclear power is safe (so long as it's not run by communists or Homer Simpson) and, if we're serious about reducing GHG emissions, it's essential. When you look at the cost of nuclear versus the cost of wind or solar, it becomes obvious that we'll never be able to get off of fosil fuels without embracing nuclear power.
