Yes, but I believe nuclear is key to net zero. I chose Renewable Technology module in my last year and I believe renewable energy sources cannot take over the energy industry any time soon (perhaps technologies like CCS can help). They need further development, thus they need time to become practical. Instead of burning fossil fuels why not increase the share of nuclear. EU does not plan to to phase out non-renewable sources of energy at least by 2050. It can be seen in their recently published TYNDP scenario report that they plan rely heavily on CCS technologies to achieve net zero industry. I think it is unrealistic and they will not be able to meet the Paris Agreement. I hope I am wrong but honestly believe that nuclear is the only solution to ensure a smooth shift to renewables.

Ah I was just joking with you. I’m familiar with the benefits of nuclear energy over others. I appreciate your field.

Though I hated physics A-level when I was in school so maybe I don’t appreciate it fully 😂
