Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
iirc the biggest nuke fuel enrichment plant in the US is powered by two giant coal plants.  meanwhile, iirc, the Canadians were gonna build a nuke plant to facilitate the extraction of oil from the low-grade Alberta tar sands.  (jeez did they actually do that?  I must go look it up when I'm awake.)

go figure.

it all makes money for the contractors.  doesn't matter if it makes EROEI sense, so long as the big fact cost-plus projects keep rolling in...

The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
