The end of nuclear power? Careful what you wish for | George Monbiot
Flawed and stalled as the plans for toxic waste may be, at least they exist. There is no way to clean up CO2, the greater evil
...Abandoning a proven and reliable low-carbon technology as climate breakdown accelerates is a special form of madness...
Neither the government nor the fossil fuel companies have any programme for cleaning up carbon dioxide. This waste is, in aggregate, orders of magnitude more dangerous than the materials produced by atomic energy plants, and even harder to make safe. It's a choice of two evils, but one is much worse than the other.
