Opinion: "Fast" reactors would solve several energy challenges

Opinion: "Fast" reactors would solve several energy challenges: The U.K. should move forward with "fast" reactors, which would consume radioactive waste and produce electricity at the same time, writes blogger George Monbiot. "If the material we have seen until now as waste is instead seen as fuel, it has the potential to solve three problems at once: the UK's contribution to climate change, possible future energy shortfalls and a significant component of the massive bill -- and massive headache -- associated with cleaning up the current nuclear mess," he writes.
