The article discusses the problem with communicating nuclear energy benefits in Great Britain. The current generation is prepared to believe that there is no chicanery to which the nuclear industry won't descend in supporting an untenable reputation. It would be accurate to depict the Energy Review's timing as a tribute to the combined inability of government and the power industry to forecast the extraordinary escalation of global fossil-fuel prices over the past year. The alternatives to supplying the energy deficit, by contrast, are hazily idealistic.
