As to Niger, I'm all in favor of "full accounting" for all energy sources, as this can only make renewable energy look better, overall. I'd note that given the much lower portion of fuel costs in nuclear, the social impact of the extraction of uranium has to be much lower than that of fossil fuels; I'd also note that the majority of the uranium used in France comes from Canada, Australia and the former Soviet Union...
