I can't tell if the previous

I can't tell if the previous comment is a pro-nuker poking fun at the anti-nukes or if it was from a bona fide anti-nuke. In either case, it was not helpful to either side of the debate.

My understanding is that this laser-based enrichment technology has the potential to significantly reduce the energy consumption needed to prepare nuclear fuel -- which is a win for both sides of the debate. This not only reduces the costs of producing nuclear fuel, it reduces its CO2footprint as well......since enriching uranium requires considerable electricity that is presently produced primarily by burning coal and natural gas.
