The United States could build 25 or so AP1000 reactors and put a nice dent in coals market share of electricity production.
So 'coal',out of their own pocket pays to sequester all current carbon dioxide emissions,plus remove all the carbon dioxide they've already put into the atmosphere.And their wholesale price per kWh is now $4,000.
Who's subsidizing who?
