Nukes "not on the menu"

Jeffrey Paul A.
San Diego, CA
Post #: 21
For the first time in over 20 years, the CA state Senate had a hearing on nuclear power. What is mostly preventing additional nukes from being built is a legislative ban until indefinite storage can be provided, but it is instructive to note that it doesn't solve the problem:

Even without the ban, turning to nuclear to reduce carbon emissions would be a major task. Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, R-Irvine, said the state would need to build four or five nuclear plants to achieve a 20 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions -- solely from the electricity sector. The state currently has two nuclear plants operating: San Onofre and Diablo Canyon, near San Luis Obispo.

Similar to what Nate Lewis is saying but on a smaller scale. This is a problem of tremendous scale.
