Some people are very anti Nuclear as they look to such a Fukushima, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island as their bench mark. Sorry folks but that is living in a time capsule. All those power stations were built in the last generation. CND and the cycle of Fear meant that development of nuclear stood still for the best part of thirty years. However new power stations were built and there has yet to be an accident with any of the new generation. Third generation nuclear, now the concentration is on energy rather than nuclear weaponry, should take safety to a new level. New technologies like micro nuclear, hot salt and thorium takes all the issues with nuclear and turns them on their head. Melt downs can now be a thing of the past. Radioactive waste is now minimal and within ten more years may well be eradicated Fusion is just around the corner and the albeit questionable technology of cold fusion may be fact rather than illusion. That our government seems to be considering yesterdays technology which is what happens when poluticians, scientists and committees decide policy rather than engineers and technicians. There was a day when I would have added scientists to the plus side that but that word has become debased with the consensus on climate change fiasco and the politicalisation of Science. Too many modern day “scientists” care more for well paid consultancies and committees than real science. However there is a groundswell of old fashioned scientists now standing in front of their test tubes and physics labs and saying that enough is enough. The following videos compares wind to nuclear and clearly defines the choice.

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004
