65. Sorry to burst your bubble, but Obama is pushing nuclear reactors

(Reuters) - In a glow of bonhomie, U.S. President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled plans to unlock billions of dollars in nuclear trade and to deepen defense ties, steps they hope will establish an enduring strategic partnership.

The two countries reached an understanding on two issues that, despite a groundbreaking 2006 agreement, had stopped U.S. companies from setting up reactors in India and had become one of the major irritants in bilateral relations.


And in the meantime, India is planning on DOUBLING their coal output:

Coal production is slated to expand here in the coming months, part of the new government's ambitious push to double India's output to more than 1 billion tons annually to meet the needs of a burgeoning economy - with growth now set to outpace China's, according to several forecasts.

Even under the best-case scenario, coal will continue to account for more than 60 per cent of the country's power capacity until 2030, according to one government model, although renewable energy such as wind and solar power will rise from 6 per cent to 18 per cent.
