I guess the Maglev train that the UK conservatives are proposing is a step in the right direction. It should directly and indirectly produce far less pollution. Problem is the government can't get the existing railway network running properly so this Maglev train sounds like yet another expensive pie in the sky idea funded by the British tax payer! They'll still break down and they'll still run late. The latest daft idea from the train companies is issuing their staff with watches which are automatically updated by wireless from the super accurate nuclear clocks. Do they honestly think this is going to get trains running on time? Bunch of idiots if you ask me! More trains and upgrade the signalling system..aagh...but that costs lots of money. The shareholders won't like that one bit!
I know lots of people will disagree strongly with this but isn't nuclear power, at present, the only option for efficient cheap energy without the associated pollution caused by fossil fuel burning power stations? Even when Chernobyl went critical the assumed aftermath of thousands dying from the fall-out never happened. The dangers are blown out of all proportion by the media who continue to terrify people just to sell newspapers. Who are the terrorists?
Just ask yourself how many nuclear power stations are there worldwide, then how many people have died to date directly as a result of having nuclear power stations? They seem pretty safe to me! You are far more likely to die driving your car to and from work than you are from any nuclear accident. Want to sell your car?
