Its time we had an informed pragmatic debate on nuclear power with our "leaders" actually showing some leadership in driving the debate. Instead they seem to be driven by outdated local public opinion based on memories of incidents from 20-30 years ago, rather than from the good safety record since this time. If nuclear power is part of the solution for the rest of the world, why are we any different? Yes storage of waste is a difficult problem, but renewables are simply not going to be cost effective enough to be the complete solution.
