thought for the day . . .
The development of civil nuclear power took over a decade of intensive government research and sponsorship from 1945 to 1955, culminating in the world’s first commercial nuclear power station, Calder Hall, opening with a miniscule 50 MW capacity. By 1960 world installed nuclear capacity was only 1GW. We can only guess what the accumulated costs to the public purse were by this time.
I wonder what today’s renewables sceptics would have had to say about that – 15 years of very expensive development for 1GW capacity.
