Are We Running Out of Uranium? Let's Hope So
- Saturday, 28 November 2009
Can a nuclear weary TreeHugger really believe what she's hearing? Could uranium mines be facing shortages? Earlier this week, New Scientist reported that nuclear power may be faced with a double blow: Uranium mine owners are talking shortages, and estimates for the amount of uranium that can be economically mined may be lower than once thought.
It's bad news for all those nuclear power plants being built around the world (at great expense to tax-payers, I might add), but it may be good news for green energy.
