      The supply of fissile material is quite limited in terms
      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
      concept, not proven technology. And there isn't yet a new
      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.
