Friends of the Earth, the IPCC and Nuclear Energy

"... Friends of the Earth found some proposals disappointing. Particularly troubling was a recommendation to expand the use of nuclear power."
From FOE

And what the SPM said:

"Given costs relative to other supply options, nuclear power, which accounted for 16% of the electricity supply in 2005, can have an 18% share of the total electricity supply in 2030 at carbon prices up to 50 US$/tCO2-eq, but safety, weapons proliferation and waste remain as constraints."
