It seems that Japan Steel is a very rich charitable institution.
Presumably they will also fund the cost of the decommisioning and the
storage of the waste for 100 000 to 250 000 years.
We may not have any choice. Ireland will be a cold miserable place if
we run out of energy (even if teh gulf stream does not stop and or sea
levels do not rise). What alternative (no pun intended) do we have?
**** '...if we run out of energy...' presumably you are talking about
a point where all fossil fuels have been depleted, so you have to
think about a world no longer using them as fuel for heat and
transport, a world driven by electricity perhaps, a world that may
find it a lot harder to cope with the enormous logistical overhead of
a nuclear power station. We live with the consequences of cheap
power through oil, and now wish to take even more risks with the next
cheapest thing for short term gains. Future generations, if there
are any, will rightly curse us.
Rubbish and nonsense!
