US nuclear industry sets generation record

HOUSTON, Mar. 16௿½The US nuclear power industry produced a record amount of power last year from fewer plants, continuing to defy predictions of its early demise.

The Bush Administration௿½s decision to reject the Kyoto Protocol and omit CO2 from its multi-emissions strategy is the first step in the right direction. Today௿½s energy market turmoil stems from under-investment in capacity to produce power and fuels. Uncertainty about emissions policy is a significant obstacle to construction of new power plants across the nation, something that is sorely needed to improve California௿½s – and the nation௿½s – economic prospects.
