Energy Secretary Stephen Chu at the G8 summit testifying before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee:
I think nuclear power is going to be a very important factor in getting us to a low carbon future…Quite frankly, we want to recapture the lead on industrial nuclear power. We have lost that lead as we have lost the lead in many energy technologies and we want to get it back.
Correction: Chu didn’t go to G8. Our mistake. Thanks to Rod Adams for letting us know.
