Figure 7.36 Correlation of decreased global temperature rise in the year 2095 with increased utilization of nuclear power induced through the imposition of a carbon tax starting in the year 2005 with the indicated constant rate CTAX($/tonneC/15yr). Also shown is the corresponding increase in absolute and relative (to the BAU/BO basis scenario) PRI. The impact of changing the rate at which SE ^ FE conversion efficiency improves with time, ek(1/yr), is also shown; the BAU/BO basis scenario assumes Gk is constant at 0.005 1/yr up to the year 2005, and then linearly increases to 0.008 1/yr by
2095 (Krakowski, 1999).
