So he died eh ?
Seems his tree-hugging tofu spell didn't have 'the force.'
As you say, dumb sh1t !
These tree hugging, tofu munching farks have got to realise that nuclear power is the way forward, with the new pebble bed reactors which are inherently safe & can't melt down.
So, these bar stewards want out of nuclear? Let's look at the options, from their perspective:
Coal, oil, gas - eeeuw! Fossil fuels, depleating Mother Earth, it'll all run out, not "sustainable", Kyoto, CO2 emissions etc...
Tidal - Destruction of natural habitats
Hydro - as tidal
Wind - kills lots of pretty birdies
Wave - what about all the migratory animals affected?
Solar - in the UK, right?
Geothermal - likewise...
What about from a scientific perspective?
Coal, oil, gas - not a good long term prospect; we've got better things to do with oil than burn it.
Tidal - a possiblility, but cost may prohibit it
Wave - not consistent, and cost may be prohibitive
Wind - not consistent, surprisingly expensive
Solar - Solar panels still need more energy to be produced than they will produce in their service life. Plus, britain is a cloudy, foggy little island...
Nuclear - Almost unlimited supply of fuel, produces small quantities of really narsty waste (one golf ball sized lump for every person if all their electricity needs throughout their life were produced by nuclear fission as opposed to several thousand tonnes of CO2 & SO2 from fossil fuels), probably the best long-term option.
Apologies for injecting science into what could have turned into a Nuke/Tofu flamewar...
ha ha ha ha ha ha ah ha ha ahahah ahahahhahahahah
Bags of balls, just badly directed...
Stoat man do you work for mr burns?
nuclear power has been promising cheap clean safe electricity since before i was born delivered exspensive power .dodgy saftey records and appaling accidents and no good way of getting rid of waste du rounds are not a great idea .hey would how you can accuse tidal wave and wind of being exspensive compared to nuclear i have no idea if we didnt get nuclear weapons from the reactors they would have been scrapped
nuclear reactors are the sa80 of electricity generation it might work now but noone really wants them
I'd like to nominate that arrse for a Darwin Award...
