Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For the nuclear industry, Gen IV reactors, like breeders before them, are the same kind of greenwashing technology as CCS is for coal power: it's okay to construct polluters today if the public (or at least its elected officials) can be made to believe that it all can be cleaned up tomorrow. Thus the maturing of the technology is not necessary.
