Updates to Nukes Neg (round 2!) DDI 2008 BQ    The Peepster GNEP=Reprocessing Reprocessing is a key part of the GNEP Matthew Bunn , Associate Professor of Public Policy; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom, 11-14- 07 , Testimony in front of Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, US Senate, http://belfercenter.ksg.harvard.edu/publication/17675/risks_of_gneps_focus_on_nearterm_reprocessing.html ?breadcrumb=%2F A key GNEP goal is to expand global reliance on nuclear energy without increasing proliferation risks . Controlling the spread of enrichment and reprocessing – the technologies that make it possible to produce nuclear bomb material – is a critical part of achieving that objective . 2

Updates to Nukes Neg (round 2!) DDI 2008 BQ    The Peepster Licensing Popular—McCain McCain will reject any nuclear bill that doesn’t include an expedited licensing provision Bradford Plumber , The New Republic, 7-16- 08 , http://blogs.tnr.com/tnr/blogs/environmentandenergy/archive/2008/07/16/do-nukes-have-a-bright-future-maybe- not.aspx Of course, one way Congress could give nuclear a boost would be to expedite the licensing process for new plants , but Romm argues against this, too, saying the "economic and safety risks are too high." I'd imagine this point will be a lot more controversial—McCain , for instance, opposes any cap-and-trade bill that doesn't have a provision for expedited licensing . I'm not sure how big a brawl this could be, although even if the licensing process was changed, the costs alone still make it unlikely that nuclear will play more than a relatively small role (say, 10 percent) in a future low-carbon diet. 3

In every case, these efforts have
