A smidgen more madness
Oh, what’s that? You’re still hankering for nuclear madness? OK, here’s a digestif:
As the use of nuclear power expands, it will become increasingly ineffective at combating global warming, warns a report by an independent think tank published today.
The Oxford Research Group argues that a worldwide shortage of high-grade uranium ore will force new nuclear reactors to exploit increasingly lower-grade ores for their fuel. Because that requires more energy to extract, the process will result in ever-greater amounts of climate-wrecking pollution.
