Now, I imagine a few CoffeeHousers might be thinking: "Who cares what these jumped-up climate-change crusaders believe?" But the fact remains that the green lobby is, rightly or wrongly, a powerful voice in British politics. Given our country's desperate need for cheaper, more plentiful, energy, anything which smooths the passage for an expansion in nuclear power should be welcomed.“
"It was kind of like a religious conversion. Being anti-nuclear was an essential part of being an environmentalist for a long time but now that I’m talking to a number of environmentalists about this, it’s actually quite widespread this view that nuclear power is not ideal but it’s better than climate change."
