The UK Government continues to subsidise the building and operating of nuclear power plants despite the facts that: nuclear fission is the most expensive and dangerous way of generating electricity; the grade of uranium ore required by current nuclear power plants is fast becoming too expensive to mine; the authorities appear unable or uninterested in protecting industry workers and communities living near plants or mines from the deadly uranium radiation released by the processes; the toxic waste created by the process remains dangerously radioactive for tens of thousands of years; every nuclear plant is a potential nuclear disaster, whether because of human error, a natural accident (like Fukushima), or a terrorist action.

The nuclear industry promises two safer alternatives, cold fusion rather than hot fission and thorium-fuelled nuclear power rather than uranium-fuelled nuclear power, but neither is ready - still - to help bridge the gap between electricity generation principally from dirty fossil fuels and electricity generation principally from clean renewable sources, like solar, wind, hydro and tidal power.
