The new head of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation makes an increasingly familiar argument – that nuclear power is a viable option for generating energy in the face of greenhouse-induced climate change: “If one believes the European Union projections . . . nuclear power will come back as the world starts moving towards carbon taxes. In Europe the feeling against burning coal is pretty strong.” You don’t hear that much here in the U.S., but it obviously resonates in places where attitudes toward greenhouse stuff are more solidified.
