""We need to ensure the safe development of nuclear energy, including the secure use and management of equipment, and finding safe locations. China has done a lot of work in this area, in terms of deciding inland locations and the timing of construction of nuclear power plants. We have begun some work in our coastal areas, while nuclear power technology is being upgraded. Based on China's needs, we should further develop nuclear power.""

"China, during the United Nations climate change conference, pledged to cut its carbon emissions per unit of GDP by 60-65 percent from 2005 levels by 2030 and peak its carbon emissions by the same date."

But keep in Mind, mi caro "Ms. Coléga"  Floyd, that the Paris Accord is ∑-ly devoid of Economic-Incentives/penalties; Enforcement; Etc. in order to Firmly encourage its "participants" to Really Reduce their Un-Coordinated Carbon footprints...
      Solely the Auto-intrinsic (sans  Subsidies) Economic incentive of Reactors that take Full-advantage of Ms. Science  processes  Shall be capable of "Making the Break" from Dumping Carbon sans  abándon into Our Shared environment:

"Government support for early stage research and development is only the beginning. Mission Innovation is complemented by a significant private sector-led effort. Led by Bill Gates, 28 investors from 10 countries created the Breakthrough Energy Coalition to mobilize substantial capital to capture the fruits of Mission Innovation by investing with heightened risk tolerance, patience and a willingness to carry the most promising technologies all the way to the marketplace. The commitment to accelerating energy technology innovation through Mission Innovation and the Breakthrough Energy Coalition provides a major leveraging opportunity for American research and development investments."

America needs to accelerate clean energy breakthroughs to ensure energy security, enable a low-carbon energy future, reduce energy bills and enhance the competitiveness of American companies.

“Attendance was strong as we’re seeing a growing interest in advanced reactors,” Icenhour said. “Some 40 companies are developing new reactors worldwide and we’ve seen investments of an estimated $1.3 billion.”

Feb. 19, 2016 – Moving advanced nuclear reactors from the drawing board to the field was the focus of the Advanced Reactors Technical Summit III, hosted by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and attended by 180 experts from industry, government and academia.

"Small modular reactors are an important new step toward safe, reliable, carbon-free technology,” said Lynn Orr, the agency’s undersecretary for science and energy, in a statement issued Thursday announcing the permit. “Today’s announcement is a part of the Department of Energy’s ongoing commitment to strengthening nuclear energy’s role in America’s low-carbon future.”"

"Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: The former Secretary of State claimed to be “agnostic about nuclear power” in the 2007 YouTube Democratic Primary debate. As a result, she rarely directly discusses nuclear energy, though one of her campaign fact sheet claims she favors “advanced nuclear,” which requires “expand[ing] successful innovation initiatives, like ARPA-e, and cut those that fail to deliver results.”

The Vermont senator vehemently opposes the construction of new nuclear reactors “when we do not know how we get rid of ... the ones that already exist.”

No argument there, +Shawn H Corey - pressurized water reactors are so last century. That doesn't mean there aren't better designs out there - and there are plenty. From fast reactors, to molten salt, and pebble bed reactors, these new designs can not only be produced more cheaply, they can also be far safer, proliferation resistant, cleaner, and, icing on the cake, burn up all the "waste" fuels, as well as decommissioned nuclear weapons. Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.

Ahead of the start of construction later this year of a full-scale Synroc waste treatment plant, the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (Ansto) is preparing to upscale the technology from a research level to an industrial scale in a pilot plant.

Commenting on the announcement by Rosatom that the construction of two new units at the Bushehr nuclear power plant complex would start soon, Hassan Beheshtipour, political commentator for Iranian English-language news network Press TV, told Sputnik that the news only confirms the growing atmosphere of trust between Tehran and Moscow.

It's entirely possible last week's announcement from the Department of Energy that it was issuing a site use permit to build a module nuclear reactor near the Idaho National Laboratory will be remembered as a historic moment in the development of nuclear power. NuScale Power has been developing ...

"Stand on the floor of the vast Darlington turbine hall, the size of seven football fields, and you can feel the vibration coming up through soles of your feet as they rotate at 1,800 revolutions per minute. Each of the four turbines makes about half as much juice as Niagara Falls."

"Alabama’s five nuclear reactors generate 28% of the state’s electricity, but produce 81% of Alabama’s emissions-free electricity, while operating around the clock, day after day. Over the past three years, the reactors have compiled an average capacity factor of 93% -- electricity actually produced compared to the maximum that could be produced. Last year, the U.S. fleet of some 100 nuclear plants operated at 92% capacity."

Think the days of nuclear energy are over? Not so fast.

Tagline
I totally support an International effort to pursue LFTR. THe potential is humanity's launch into THe THorium Age and realizing our presence in THe Universe. THe biosphere should become a life sanctuary and all toxic industries should be SPACE BASED.
Introduction
 Auguries of Innocence
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

With the CO2 concentrations accumulating at record levels a more robust
strategy is required like deploying of the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor(LFTR). China is investing $1B a year beginning in 2011 March. Another American R&D not pursued by US. LFTRs R&D at Oak Ridge by Dr Alvin Weinberg (holder of patents on the Light Water Reator(LWR){TMI, Chernobyl and Fukushima type} and the Molten Salt Reactor(MSR))successfully explored the element Thorium as a source for a discretely manageable Nuclear process to produce electrical power. Uranium (rare as gold) verses Thorium (common as lead). The (solid fuel reactor) LWR consumes about 5% of the solid fuel with tons of mean,sizzling radioactive waste requiring Yucca Mountain type storage for 10,000 years. A(Fluid molten salt reactor)LFTR  consumes 96% of several different types of fuel: 1)LWR Nuclear waste (no Yucca mountain needed),2)Weapons Grade material, and 3)natural thorium with a minuscule amount of waste requiring 500 years of storage. The Nuclear Waste burden is only resolved economically with the (MSR)LFTR producing clean electricity absent CO2 and Mercury emissions. LFTRs are cheaper than coal.

The Convenient Truth is The Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor is
The Earth Friendly Nuclear Reactor.  

One day I hope soon, It will be recognized that will live and thrive in a Nuclear Cosmos. It will evolve into a similar
rational as a round/flat world argument.

All of your alternative energy technologies
are all anemic distant cousins of nuclear 
power generation via the Sun. The clincher
is that the Earth's density of the Star Dust Radioactive Isotopes {Thorium232, Uranium 238, Potassium40,etc...,}generate life sustaining warmth and the electromagnetic shield protecting our biosphere's life sustaining atmosphere from the solar winds
for more than 5 Billion years. These isotopes
are the Guardians of the life sustaining bio-shere supporting the only speck of life
in the Cosmos. We need to "KNOW NUKES NOW" and learn to exploit and populate our
Cosmos.
