Deal to build UK nuclear plants finalised within weeks

Is nuclear fission going to make a comeback and plug the gap in our energy needs? Will nuclear fusion ever become energetically viable?

Deal to build UK nuclear plant should be finalised within weeks

Ministers and EDF have agreed on controversial £25bn development of Hinkley Point C, with most of upfront costs provided by Chinese companies.
Let's hope the Chinese aren't providing the plant operating manuals as well. :wink: :lol:

And all thanks to the 'greenest government' to date. :roll:

What was their logo before the election - 'Vote blue, go green'?

Vote blue, no green and see red in my case, I'm afraid. B******s!

As we already have a thread about Hinckly C, I have locked this thread so as to keep the discussion in one place.

The above post is now quoted the other thread, which may be found here
