Big Fossil Fuel, of course, will fight this tooth and nail. They'll grease politicians' palms, get their spin doctors and sock puppets yapping away, run TV ads and put up billboards touting how coal is good. But coal is limited, and no matter which way you slice it, we will have to ditch coal - and the sooner, the better.

If the world is going to have clean, zero carbon energy, then it is going to have to develop next generation nuclear on a large scale across the planet.
