All nuclear reactors also actually manufacture more than 1,946 dangerous and known radioactive metals, gases and aerosols. Many isotopes, such as radioactive hydrogen, simply cannot be contained .

Nuclear waste with a half life of 250,000 years??(that figure may be wrong but how many generations will pass before it is safe?) still has not been resolved and we have had nuclear power for something like 66 years.

What is the true cost of nuclear? So high that we can do little when it goes wrong.
Fracking for natural gas is not entirely safe either, even though it is at deeper depths there still could be leaks to ground water, or destabilization of the soil.
I hope the future is bright for solar energy. Prices have gone down tremendously for solar panels and if every building can eventually be disconnected from the grid that would be great. I have heard great things about hemp being used as a fuel but does anyone know if it can be done on a global scale used for modern technology?
Crops could soon be grown in greenhouses the size of skyscrapers in city centres across the country, it has been claimed.
Birds Eye and other food producers are investigating building ‘plantscrapers’, which could accommodate hundreds of storeys worth of crops, in a bid to make farming more economical, sustainable and meet increasing demand.
The ‘vertical farms’ would use an innovative feeding system which nourishes plants with enriched water, therefore cancelling out the need for soil – and the need for food to be grown and harvested in the countryside.
