(해외기사) Over the last decade, a glut of cheap natural gas has driven hundreds of coal plants in out of business and nuclear reactors into early retirement. Some environmental groups that have long been hostile to nuclear power are now having second thoughts. “We don’t support unlimited subsidies for nuclear plants open but we are concerned that if you close these plants today, they’d be replaced by natural gas and emissions would go up.” A study found that if all of the United States’ at-risk reactors were replaced by modern gas plants, domestic emissions in the power industry would increase 4.9%.
