of supplying most of the world's energy for more than
an interlude of a couple of generations.
Then there's the minor problem of nuclear waste.
So, no solution here. And the GNER thing is really only a

generation of proven technology.
I agree that we'll probably see quite a few more nukes built,
but I don't think it's going to change very much.
