Why revive nuclear? After 50 years of investment, no-one wants to buy into it. No-one is going to risk the money.
We have to think about the future.
Carbon dioxide emission targets can be achieved in three ways, first, through the prudent use of gas. The average family saloon emits 190g CO 2/km and is grossly inefficient. A gas powered car is twice as efficient, and half as polluting.
The Government knows this is the way to go and an emissions-linked duty on cars is not far away.
The second way will be to make our homes and businesses perform better. It is simple. Changing all our homes to fluorescent light bulbs would save 11GW a year - equivalent to nine Sizewell Bs.
Finally we will put money into renewables. Just three offshore wind farms would generate enough power to replace all current nuclear plants. And then there's the Hydrogen fuel cell - the jet engine of the 2020s.
Nuclear has had ú50M ($71M) a year invested in it for decades. Renewables deserve that too.
