Rebadging Nuclear Power as Clean and Green: The nuclear power industry is lobbying to have nuclear power included in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The CDM -- which currently excludes nuclear power -- allows industrialized countries required to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol (known as Annex I countries) to invest in projects that reduce emissions in developing countries, as partial fulfillment of their obligations. A decision on whether to overturn the existing ban on nuclear power is an issue at the COP15 meeting in Copenhagen. For the full details see Clean Development Mechanism and Nuclear Power.
