I’ve been asked to supplement my colleagues presentations on the nuclear
industry with some information on climate change and some discussion of the
role nuclear energy might play in
meeting that challenge.

minimal greenhouse gas emissions and provide a few examples of potential
application in Alberta in the context of controlling atmospheric greenhouse
