U.S., Canada, and Japan Launch Nuclear Initiative to Cut Carbon Use

The United States, Japan, and Canada have created a coalition that will promote nuclear power as a carbon-free energy source, Forbes reported on May 28. The Nuclear Innovation: Clean Energy Future (NICE Future) partnership, in which the United Kingdom will also take part, will promote the use of nuclear technology to governments and policy makers as a means of cutting carbon emissions. Japan’s decision to join the partnership marks a notable turnaround from its move away from nuclear power in the wake of the March 11, 2011, earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters. Poland and Romania have also joined the alliance.
