The article says that the British government is planning to develop nuclear power plants to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. It says that according to a report from by the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology, nuclear power will help in reducing emissions.
