China grabbing up uranium to secure nuclear lead

China grabbing up uranium to secure nuclear lead: http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/intelligent-energy/china-grabbing-up-uranium-to-secure-nuclear-lead/14149 ... well I think it is called planning ahead! "More signs that China will lead the world in nuclear power: The country is snapping up a significant chunk of the world’s supply of uranium in part by buying mines in Africa and making deals with Canada to secure the nuclear fuel.
China is on track to build up to 100 nuclear reactors by 2030. It already has 27 of those under construction, as a path away from the polluting, CO2-emitting coal-fired plants that supply 80 percent of its electricity. The country looks likely to vault into the top position of nuclear generating nations - 100 new reactors would be nearly a quarter of the 435 nuclear power reactors that are commercially generating electricity in the world today."
