All things considered, the government and the generating companies have been precipitous in closing coal fired generating stations, while “green” energy does not yet have sufficient capacity to take up the slack. We have a number of nuclear power stations which are now life expired and therefore becoming unreliable and will have to be decommissioned (horrendously expensive). The French think building the reactors sought will be so expensive that the constructors (EDF) will be driven bankrupt, while the Chinese economy is now unstable and the Chinese technology to be used is either “cyber pirated” or largely untested. Given the large and increasing number of dodgy “fakes” emerging from the Chinese Republic and the seeming increasingly dubious reports regarding those in power, who will keep the lights on, and if they do will the result blow-up in our faces?
Personally, I can see a strong reason for investing in firms who build fall-out shelters! MPT
