The solution is fusion

Fusion energy has been promised for 60 years, but Steven Cowley, CEO of the UK Nuclear Energy Authority and principle investigator at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy believes that this technology is just around the corner. Cowley oversees the UK's fusion research programme, including the MAST experiment. Culham also hosts the European-wide JET facility, which has recently been upgraded and is now running fusion bursts of 30 seconds 10-12 times a day.

A power plant-scale device (ITER) is due to be built in France in the near future on the basis of these experiments.

Nuclear apologists are deluded

The nuclear debate has reached a new stage with several prominent environmentalists endorsing fission as a necessary addition to the energy mix. Co-founder of Friends of the Earth and Founding Director of Forum for the Future Jonathon Porritt argues that anyone favouring nuclear energy has not looked properly at the economics or has been suckered by industry propaganda. Porritt argues that the nuclear industry has not delivered on 60 years of promises, and he doubts that it never will.
