    1. I’d put most of the blame on local NIMBYs, but much of the resistance has been stoked by well supported activists that spread misinformation.

      Interestingly enough, one of the major funders of the opposition is a regional propane dealer. He has told me that I’m wrong in my assumption that he’s encouraging nuclear fear for competitive reasons. He says he generally supports nuclear energy, but I have a feeling that there is a strategy of stoking fears about hazards of radiation in preparation for resisting the addition of a third unit at North Anna in the near future.

    Honestly, though, is this really a big deal? The global price of uranium is very low right now. I don’t see how there’s any actual money to be made at the moment, which leaves me in doubt as to whether this is just another resource-industry financial strategem.

      All successful players in the mining and natural resources business understand that it is cyclic in nature and that there are long time constants in the cycles. If you’re planning to be in the money the next time the cycle shifts, you need to prepare the ground now.
