Stop it, 20 minutes !!!, to a large extent I agree with you. The nuclear accidents that have happened have been serious and whether it has been press hype, association with nuclear weapons or genuine concern I am not going to debate, both have lead to public concern and deaths. The ultimate question you would have to ask of the population, accepting that you would have to provide honest data, would you have one built close to you? I've toured nuclear power stations, I've visited Sellafield and so far I have to say I'm fine but if you ask people, even people who are ok with the idea of nuclear power the question they tend to prefer these facilities to be built elsewhere. With the back of an envelope calculation the UK needs about 40 GW of electrical production. It currently has about 9 GW of nuclear production. A shortfall of about 31GW or 25x1200MW nuclear reactors if the entire production was to go nuclear. A lot of new sites would be needed and suitable transmission grids installed. This isn't an impossible number or cost though but because of the need for lots of water a number of coastal sites could be impacted. The risk of accident and increase in waste production would also have to be considered. I don't think nuclear is ultimately the answer and like Milky I agree it is a possible quick fix with risks.
