Has there ever been a more symbolically significant wind turbine - RSPB announces plan for turbine at HQ

Martin Harper ought to take on board that the most environmentally-friendly form of renewable energy is from breeder reactors. It is renewable energy, because the fuel sources, uranium or thorium, will provide ALL of the energy requirements for everyone on the planet, until the end of time (at least for the 5 billion years the Sun has left). For urban communities, Breeder Reactors are the inevitable future for base load electricity and we should see the beginnings of an ever accelerating global deployment from the 2020s into the 2030s. The energy security, inherent safety and NOAK economics makes this prospect irresistable. In the UK, we have the NNL's Memorandum of Understanding with GE Hitachi, regarding their PRISM reactor and the disposal of the UK's plutonium stockpile: http://lftrsuk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/nuclear-waste-problem-what-nuclear.html This fuel source alon...
