But you won't see the major environmental organizations discuss the possibility of seeing nuclear in a positive light until the CO2 concentration is well above 400 ppm, and they begin to wonder why the existing green energy mandates haven't worked.

===============================

But you won't see more nuclear power being generated for years because several nuclear plants are shutdown due to botched repairs and NRC investigations of unsafe operations at other nuclear plants. This does not help to turn the nuclear power image around.

Nuclear power generated is down 4.4%
July 2011 - 72,345,000 megawatt-hours
July 2012 - 69,129,000 megawatt-hours

Some of the problems are due to the fact that the nuclear industry has lost much of its talent and the new people are making mistakes because they lack the experience. Some of the problems are due to management emphasis on taking more maintenance and repair risks for profits. There are no other explanations for what is happening in the poor operation of existing nuclear plants.
