Nuclear Divorce

The breakup between Westinghouse and Mitsubishi is sure to cause disruption in the global nuclear power industry.  Since 1959 the two have teamed up to produce nuclear power plants.  But thanks to a purchase of Westinghouse by Toshiba, and “irreconcilable differences” stated by Mitsubishi, the cohabitational marriage is split.

This is bad timing.

Because of solicited fears about high levels of carbon dioxide buildup in the atmosphere, there is a resurgence in planning of nuclear power generating stations. 

Do either Mitsubishi or Westinghouse have the ability to strike it out on their own?
