EEEEeeevil Nuclear Power

The Brits have now endorsed the evil nuclear powerplant as the answer to meet increasing energy needs without environmental destruction.

This is only common sense, of course. France, despite declaring its intent only a few years ago to disassemble all its nuclear plants for environmentalism's sake, has done nothing of the kind and will not. There have been no accidents. Systems are much better than in the days of Three Mile Island, which didn't actually harm anyone, and of course Chernobyl was a product of legendary Soviet inefficiency and "centralized carelessness" that happened over 20 years ago.

Nuclear energy is sensible. Clean, endless, the way to charge batteries on all those electric cars of the future. The only thing wrong with it is... well, nothing. But that usually doesn't stop enviro protests, and it isn't stopping them there either.
