Renewable Nuclear? Nuclear boosters disguise their product behind green verbiage.
But now proponents, led by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California, are trying a new ploy to call nuclear "renewable," which would make it eligible for subsidies and tax credits like solar and wind projects.Renewable means perpetual or inexhaustible—like the sun and the wind. There may be plenty of uranium in the ground, but it's no more infinite than oil or gas. It may (or may not) be worth considering in a national strategy, but please don't try to pass it off as renewable.
