Emission impossible


There are legitimate arguments about the environmental desirability of nuclear power, but I can not understand our president's wish to oppose more stations because they would 'be at the expense of cleaner renewables' (NCE last week).

No one is predicting a 'renewable only' future within 20 or even 50 years. Far from competing with nuclear, both would be reducing fossil fuel use and CO 2emissions.

Could the president justify his statement?
