No. It won't.
And the planet doesn't need "saving".

Wrong. But this is also wrong in backing inappropriate light water reactors just because the US sells them. China needs a generation of :PASSIVE SAFE and effective Molten Salt Thorium Reactors. They have limited amounts of Uranium but lots of Thorium so this would fit their assets perfectly and the MSTR is passively safe. It can be 'scrammed' with no danger to ANYONE or release of nuclear material.
It is true that upfront (construction costs) are the main limitation on nuclear. But the main expense in 'conventional' light water reactors is in the containment vessel. So a reactor that doesn't NEED such as vessel will be orders of magnitude cheaper as well as safer.
Right. This is about US and what kind of future we want. Starving in caves or with plentiful power to run a technological civilization.

People who deny the 'Global Warming Fight' is about SAVING THE PLNAET are simply blind to reality.
The proof is right in front of us. All we have to do is look.
Still a skeptic?
Simply Google "Save The Planet" and see for yourself that each response IS about saving the planet from AGW.
