Don’t like CO2? Advanced nuclear power is the answer

Posted by seumasach on February 10, 2020

A future free of fossil fuels and dependent on nuclear power was first put forward in a 1945 booklet entitled “The Atomic Age”. Throughout the 1950s it was scientists linked to the Manhattan Project who put forward the “global warming” thesis. Now under the pretext of “saving the planet” nuclear energy is set for a comeback. This is ironic: if there is one thing which will render planet earth permanently uninhabitable it is the pitfalls which inevitably accompany nuclear power. We have already had at least two major catastrophes and countless incidents of contamination. We would have already had the good sense to leave it behind were it not for the pseudo-problem of CO2. As this article makes quite clear green energy sources will not make up the deficit left by ending fossil fuel energy generation. The Green agenda demands a nuclear agenda as recognised in Labour’s manifesto.
