Dr. Pielke,

Excellent graphs!

I submit the following two graphs to augment yours:

World Coal Resources
World Natural Gas Resources

As expected, we see a very strong correlation between who has what and which resource is most commonly used.

Just to clarify, does the rest of the world not have any nuclear reactors (say Britain or Italy),or is the graph cut off at 10 reactors?

Roger Pielke, Jr. said...

Sharon- No, there are other reactors. Britain has 10.
