Let's get CANDID. The truth is the jerks at the top are making HUGE PROFIT$ by investing in NUCLEAR ENERGY these days - from everything from mining, to investing in nuclear facilities - and this includes goverment "employees" who soon discover what a high rate of return they can get for every dollar invested in uranium and copper mining stocks. So of course they want to paint a picture of doom and gloom when it comes to OIL and GAS exploration.
The truth is this: the guys in the nuclear energy "industry" are deluded and maybe WORST of them all.
Nuclear energy is expaning and the oil companies are buying right into it and making HUGE money off the same. So this man's bafflement at the UK's policy is sorta wrongheaded. His disclaimer of the UK parties being FOR nuclear energy is just plain stoopid. Sellafield's been around a LONG time, folks ...
Too BAD about the UK farms, but what did the bulk of UK folks expect when they sat on their hands and did NOTHING about Sellafield? Hmmm?
Believe me the World Rulers have a PLAN and it is nuclear energy regardless of the risks to them and their children. I think they think they'll just get right lucky and not be incinerated themselves, never remembering that LOW LEVEL RADIATION is just as deadly.
As someone who works in the UK oil industry, I thought you might be interested in a view of how prepared the UK is for possible (!) future oil shortages.I have just finished a stint as an engineer [company name removed to protect identity of writer] on the Forties pipeline terminal. Prior to that position I had spent some 30 years working in various parts of the oil and nuclear sectors as a chemical/process engineer.
