Unintended Consequences

Spate of New Reactor Plans Gives EU an Atomic Jolt Do you the Greens thought that getting Europe to adopt Kyoto would have resulted in more nuclear power? I don't think so.

After Chernobyl, most people hated Nukes.
Yet the mood appears to be shifting, prompted at least in part by European pledges to cut carbon emissions and slow global warming. Especially eager to jump aboard the pro-nukes bandwagon are ex-Soviet countries, whose rapid growth and long-standing dependence on Russian natural gas makes them extra-keen to take control of their energy markets.
Interesting how actions often have unintended consequences.
