A plan for a giant wind farm in Cumbria has been rejected - so is there more support for nuclear power instead? There's possibly a bit of a clash here between the power we need, the power we use, and the backlash of being used to a society of "individualism". We want to live as we do. We're not too keen on nuclear. And we don't want to screw up the landscape that we visit to get away from all that power we're using. At some point, something's going to have to give.
That, or some large-scale microgeneration plan.
