SPECIAL: Our 1000th bookmark

We finally chose our 1000th bookmark and it focuses on the biggest issue of our time. It was so hard to pick one out of all those sent in but thanks for all your suggestions. We will get round to them all we promise. So much great stuff out there.

So the winner was a BBC article titled: Nuclear reactors under spotlight.

Going Nuclear may cut emissions say those in favour. Going Nuclear is unneccessary lunacy say those against. Clearly safety is a primary concern. What about existing wastage? Could renewables be enough? Do we need Nuclear to prevent climate change? A very murky issue indeed.

It is time the City Hippy took a look at this extremely complex this space.

Feel free to offer your opinions in the meantime...the more the merrier.

When considering nuclear it's also important to take into account the carbon costs of actually constructing and maintaining the structure - lorries/JCBs etc aren't emission free. Also the world has a limited supply of uranium that needs to be mined. What will happen if everyone starts building nuclear power plants?

Of course...good point...will take into account.

Thanks for the comment Andrew
