The Environment Maryland Research and Policy Center released a report questioning the economic sense of using nuclear power as a tool in fighting climate change. The release comes amid plans to build a third reactor at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant in Lusby, Md. Mitch Singer of the Nuclear Energy Institute said he would view the report "with a grain of salt"; he emphasized the need for nuclear and other low-carbon power sources to limit the country's emissions and meet its growing energy demand.
