The nuclear industry’s biggest challenge: PR
This is the New Statesman’s special supplement on energy issues from last year. It’s worthwhile reading.
Now, I know, it’s unfortunate that I missed this, and I’m now about a year late to the table, but this is a really good piece, it’s worth reading. As well as a great piece of the need for improved PR and public education about nuclear power, which was the main bit I was interested in at first, there are interesting pieces on wind energy, the geopolitics of natural gas supplies in Europe, battery technology, and a great piece by physicist Brian Cox, suggesting that, since we do have access to ample sustainable energy, energy “conservation” as a long term goal is both immoral and dangerous.
