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.
