Small nukes for energy. Us needs to keep up in this emerging tech, for the children of course. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/nuclear-power-small-modular-reactor-1.5188048 Canada is positioning itself up to be a leader in a new age of nuclear power by exploring the use of small modular reactors (SMR). Renewable energy, such as wind and solar, has increased over the same time, but only enough to make up for the loss of nuclear, which also produces zero emissions — rather than replacing carbon-emitting sources like oil and natural gas. As a result, the IEA says that over the past 20 years, the share of low carbon electricity has remained flat — at 36 per cent.
