WBCSD – Nuclear Rebirth
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development has reprinted a National Post article from 14 July 2005 titled Nuclear rebirth that provides a balanced look at the prospects for new nuclear power plants. The article discusses the motivators for renewed interest in nuclear power along with some of the political hurdles that might slow down the process.
It is interesting to scroll through the list of the WBCSD member companies. There are both energy producers and energy intensive industries, but one thing that they seem to have in common is that almost every one of them sell physical products that require extensive processing and labor.
