Nuclear Power Making a Comeback?
An article in the New York Times indicates that nuclear power could be making a comeback. Personally, I think it is still a big maybe, but the high prices of natural gas, and the pressure that such prices exert on traditionally cheap sources of energy such as coal, have made both nuclear and renewable sources of energy (wind, solar, etc.) look relatively more attractive. The big problem as I see it is extreme environmentalism and NIMBYism. Still, the fact that people are even looking at more nuclear electricity generation and considering is a positive development, IMO.
