A great example of how applying regulatory pressure can direct engineering efforts down a narrow alley that may not actually lead very far, while encouraging more open, creative solutions may have more impact in the end. The challenge, often, is that such subtle, indirect solutions are much harder to sell.

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 two projects at the Culham Centre near Oxford. MAST is a British funded experiment, while JET is the European-wide reactor, and has recently been upgraded to a point where fusion bursts of 30 seconds are happening 10-12 times every day. An experimental power plant (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.
