A systematic review and harmonization of life cycle assessment (LCA) literature of nuclear electricity generation technologies was performed to determine causes of and, where possible, reduce variability in estimates of life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to clarify the state of knowledge and inform decision making. LCA literature indicates that life cycle GHG emissions from nuclear power are a fraction of traditional fossil sources, but the conditions and assumptions under which nuclear…

TLDR
Results show that higher atmospheric GHG concentrations lead to higher life-cycle GWP for long-term analysis and it is recommended for future LCAs to incorporate temporal effects of GHG emissions when LCA results are used for policymaking or technology comparisons for mitigating climate change.
