    They really should start thinking bigger.... at the moment they're only at atomic scale.

    I had not heard this (silly, since I do a lot of work for power companies, including the nuclear sector) so could you provide a link?

    I think it is essential for us to reduce our carbon footprint and fission power is one of the methods we have to use to do this, despite the cost and safety issues. Until fusion becomes viable, we have no other choice. Renewables should also be used as much as possible but will simply not be enough.

    Unfortunately they are all due for decommissioning within the next 15 years.

    Politicians are too frightened to go with the ONLY current solution to our power problems. The wind-power solution still seems quite a way off!

    The most prolific user of wind power is Germany who produce a meagre 7% of their needs.

    Wind mills are eye pollution. I grew up in Southern California and when I was younger there were a hand full of wind mills out towards Palm Springs on I-10.

    The last time I drove through there I was shocked to see how many wind mills they shoe horned into that area. It was dreadful. There's gotta be a better solution than this.
