The editorial board of USA Today offered a rousing defense of nuclear energy this week in the context of greenhouse gas emissions reduction. Absent an abundance of second license renewals of existing reactors, and some timely progress on development and licensing of smaller capacity reactors, the lion's share of our nation's electricity generation from nuclear energy will be gone by mid-century. Do you think those voting in the Democratic primaries will side with USA Today on the value of nuclear energy going forward, or will they accept the line of thinking that America still can have reliable electricity supplies and reduce carbon emissions without it?
