Nuclear Winter

Joe Kaplinsky, writing in today's Spiked, analyses why nuclear power isn't getting the political support it would seem to merit, and why it isn't benefiting from significant future-orientated investment.

He thinks that it remains such a sensitive issue amongst voters (he is writing about the UK but this would apply to much of Europe) that politicians won't touch it with a barge-pole, even though, to the "impartial" observer, it seems to be the only answer to the challenges of both the finite supply of fossil fuels and global warming.

Shame, that.
