Nuclear power: what's the alternative?

An expert panel debate whether nuclear power can solve our energy problems.

As we seek to overcome our reliance on fossil fuels, what are the alternatives? Offshore turbines and wind farms are often cited as options but can they really meet more than a fraction of the UK’s energy needs? If not, is nuclear power a viable alternative? Public anxiety about nuclear plants’ safety, their susceptibility to terrorist attacks, and the problem of safely disposing of radioactive waste persists. But to what extent are these concerns justified?

Ultimately, does nuclear energy finally mean we can stop guilt-tripping about energy consumption?
