In Canada, it’s time to pull the plug on nuclear

Time to pull the plug on nuclear?, The Star, Robert Bernecky, 29 Jan 2011,”………. Nuclear power continues to be a huge money-losing proposition, filling the pockets of AECL and OPG, while at the same time generating huge amounts of long-lived nuclear waste that nobody know how to dispose of, forcing our children and their children to pay for the excesses of our generation.

This waste has to stop.It is time for Ontario and Canada to stop backing an always-losing horse, and to take that $33 billion slotted for reactor refurbishment, and put it into wind, solar, and other forms of renewable, clean power.Better yet, take some of that money and fund research into ways to embed large-capacity power storage within the grid, so that intermittent power generators can be used to best advantage, and allow scalable growth of power generation in Canada……..”Time to pull plug on nuclear? – thestar.com
