Carbon dioxide and climate: too much heat clouds debate

Journal Article:

Abstract

Technical feature:The possibility of a significant global warming as a result of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels (the greenhouse effect) has recently received attention from climatologists and energy policy planners. The greenhouse effect has been used by the pro-nuclear lobby as an argument in favor of a massive commitment to nuclear power generation. While the CO2 problem is real, the solution does not lie in an energy strategy based on nuclear power, which involves as yet unsolved problems of radioactive waste disposal. The economic feasibility of processes for removing CO2 from waste gases should be investigated. (4 graphs, 10 references)
