Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
With the US dollar being valued at 5% more than the Canadian dollar, those cost estimates for nuclear seem really weird. Any word on why they've gone up by so much, except the weak dollar? Manufacturing supply crunch?

Further, I've heard rumours that nuclear is being put off because of idiotic plans of privatising AECL, (which is essentially a death sentence as the CANDU tech needs a reference customer, and really insane in the middle of a recession, it's not like they're going to be payed top dollar).

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
