It's an ongoing debate around the world - nuclear power or green energy? Nuclear developments continue to inspire global protests, but are the magic words 'renewable energy' really a viable alternative?
We're told that today's nuclear plants are environmentally friendly, but they still "leave a 100,000 year disposal problem". After Chernobyl, scientists worldwide are trying to develop a way to store radioactive waste safely for a million years. The intense opposition to this ambitious aim is clear: "humanity is not yet equipped to deal with this responsibly". But is nuclear power that easy to replace? In theory, if 1% of the Sahara was covered in solar panels, it could provide enough power for the whole world. Despite the vast cost and complex logistics of running a solar plant in Morocco this idea may yet have potential, but it isn't a fairytale solution.
