It is difficult to see who will benefit from Mark Whitby's offer of £50,000 to the Royal Academy to fund a study of nuclear power.
The Government has approved the new nuclear power stations and it is now up to the developers and investors to do the sums, taking all relevant matters into account.
Despite substantially reducing our national carbon emissions they still carry the ball and chain of the Climate Change Levy and do not enjoy the generous subsidy under the Renewables Obligation which keeps the windfarms going.
The Government's decision will be applauded by serious energy engineers although it is almost too late to save the national industry.
