Carbon emissions: More nuclear power can speed CO2 cuts

Christiana Figueres and colleagues note that turning around global carbon dioxide emissions by 2020 may not be feasible through renewable energy alone (Nature546, 593–595;10.1038/546593a2017). Low-carbon nuclear power will be needed as well.Historically, energy transitions take
