The problem of global climate change will be solved by meeting stringent,long-term policy targets that are much more ambitious than the short-term, greenhouse gas emission reductions that some countries currently attempt to reach. The large-scale implementation of carbon-free technologies constitutes one of the measures essential to realize the mitigation of global warming. Nuclear power generation involves no carbon dioxide emissions, but the current use of nuclear energy cannot be considered sustainable. However, in attempting to achieve sustainable development - and to establish transition paths towards sustainable energy systems in particular - nuclear energy might, for the moment, need to remain a component of the global energy mix.
