The article discusses the need for Great Britain to adopt nuclear energy to meet its future energy requirements. Nuclear energy is a serious option for meeting the long-term energy needs of Great Britain and there is a need to make difficult and controversial decisions in the national interest. It is the nation that has a TV in every room and where every plug socket in the house is fully occupied with charging up a phone, an i-Pod or a digital camera. Amid depleting energy resources, a properly managed technologically advanced nuclear programme is required to be initiated.
