Nuclear Power

Even George Monbiot is coming round to see that Nuclear is necessary. His only stumbling block is what to do with the waste after it has been generated.

Dumping it into an area which humans are unlikely to live in seems the best solution - deep sea trenches anyone? I think it was Lovelock who proposed that we just put it into the Amazon. Animals won't notice the effects of radiation and are unlikely to be unduly hindered by a slightly reduced overall lifespan when they tend to die of being eaten anyway.

Cost savings would be massive if we didn't have hippies continously trying to disrupt nuclear shipments and could transport them covertly but under tight security to avoid terrorists.
