U6 Is nuclear power the answer?

There have also been developments in Britain’s nuclear plan, with Chinese and French investment enabling more nuclear power plants to be built to meet our ever increasing demand for energy.

Here are two interesting articles about the role of nuclear power in the UK’s energy mix.

What do you think? Is nuclear better than developing renewable energies? Will it bridge our energy gap?
