The latest newsletter from the Global Warming Policy Forum lists a number of notable stories, from Germany's refusal to bring forward the ending of their dependence on coal, to the news that RR will be bring out enhanced Small Modular Reactors capable to provide power to local energy grids.

Given the costs, timescales, international politicking, and consequent uncertainties associated with traditional large nuclear power plants, that sounds like a "no-brainer" to me.

Not included in their newsletter are their proposals for a more workable proposals for energy policy:

"Current UK climate policies are ill-informed and utopian and will almost certainly fail to deliver Net Zero emissions by 2050, or ever. It also runs a high risk of deep and irreversible societal damage

Quite so.
