As for new nuclear , the 14MW wind turbine pretty much ended the leaning to nuclear power , that and the large decomissioning bill that appears to energy users at the end of life , oh and the 1000yr wait for certain nuclear wastes to be safe .The recent news of a 28000 yr nuclear isotope battery certainly pricked my ears up , just wasnt clear on how much synthetic diamonds would be needed , still at least you get the diamonds back in 28000 yrs time
It is a vanity project to appease some climate change groups, it will cost the tax payers a fortune and the government of the day will not be around in 2030 so cannot be held to account.
If this is to be tackled at all then the biggest polluters need to start making significant changes before we even have to think about it, without their contribution there is absolutely no point in us wasting our money.
Furthermore the government, or any government, are the last organisation you want to manage this, look at how much was wasted developing CFL lighting only for it to be superseded by LED from the private sector. Government is woefully inefficient, let the private sector take the lead backed by market forces, that is the only way.
