US Sen Boxer: Climate Bill To Include Nuclear-Power Measure


9-9-09 4:14 PM EDT | E-mail Article | Print ArticleWASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- In a sign that compromise on energy and climate legislation is already underway, a top Senate negotiator said that she will include a measure on nuclear power in a developing bill, something that Republicans have demanded.

U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman Barbara Boxer, D- Calif., who will be writing key parts of the climate bill, told reporters on Wednesday that "there will be a nuclear title in the bill." She had previously resisted any efforts to encourage nuclear power, saying before an August recess that nuclear power would already gain an advantage if the U.S. mandated reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions.

Republicans have encouraged nuclear power as a solution to climate change, saying that the near-zero emissions power plants are more reliable than renewable energy. Nuclear power is anathema to some environmentalists, partly amid concerns about how to dispose of nuclear waste.
