nuclear energy fit in this? Many
studies of lifecycle emissions from various electricity production options
demonstrate the low emissions from the nuclear energy cycle. CO2
emissions from the best hydro, nuclear and wind practice are vanishingly
small compared with fossil fuels - absent sequestration.
