I cannot help but think we need every tool in the tool box to replace fossil fuels?

While not every country would be able to establish a nuclear industry those that can would certainly make a difference in the global effort to reduce pollution? Those that have large Hydro, Tidal, Wind, Solar and Geothermal assets should certainly do as much as they can to give themselves a head start. To leave out nuclear while continuing to burn huge amounts of coal and Nat gas would be madness.

G7 pledges to accelerate progress on nuclear for decarbonization

Leaders of the G7 countries have committed[1] to “an overwhelmingly decarbonised power system in the 2030s and to actions to accelerate this.” To achieve this, they have pledged to accelerate deployment of ‘zero emissions energy’, which includes nuclear energy.

While full decarbonization means phasing out all unabated fossil fuel generation, the G7 declaration made specific commitments to end investment in coal power generation, which it described as the single biggest cause of greenhouse gas emissions.


The G7 agreement also pledged to accelerate progress on nuclear power in those countries opting to use it, alongside action on electrification and batteries, hydrogen, carbon capture, usage and storage, zero emission aviation and shipping, as part of a ‘technology-driven transition’ to Net Zero.

As part of the G7 agenda, Environment and Climate Ministers had previously reaffirmed[2] that those countries with nuclear in their energy mix recognized its ‘potential to provide affordable low carbon energy and contribute to the security of energy supply as a baseload energy source.’
