Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It does not happen that nuclear energy is in a position right now to cover all of the demand for energy by either first world or third world countries.

That quite phantastic projection (even less likely than broad reduction of consumption, yet commonly repeated in nuke-boosterist cafee klatch) relies on illusory levels of investment and the use of reserves to such a low grade that the environmental destruction from uranium mining would outstrip that from coal. (I once made a calculation on that.)
