Annual Report - 2006
What two topics dominate energy debate today? Easy – global warming and energy security. With booming economies in China and India, worldwide demand for energy isn't going away. It's going up. And the question of how to meet the world's energy appetite while reducing the threat of global warming has never been more critical.
There's a clear reason why many environmentalists, policy makers and the general public are becoming strong supporters of nuclear energy. Nuclear is a safe, reliable, cost-effective alternative. It does not emit greenhouse gases. Nor does it emit acid rain producing gases. And there's more buzz. Right now, countries representing half the world's population are building new nuclear power plants.
At Cameco, we believe the world needs nuclear – the clean air energy. That's something to talk about.
