The internet was predictable, we knew the browser would follow and that content would grow and that ecommerce was next and that search find try and buy would emerge so the cloud would happen and to peak it had to integrate people so social media and mobile convergence was expected and we know that, what decides, is US.

Nuclear power: Atomised approach / Comment / Analysis - Nuclear power: Atomised approach

Even with renewables and hopefully more careful if not reduced consumption, as new technology and new behaviours kick in for a growing global population, Nuclear is still a key answer to energy needs and reduction in CO2 emittions thus helping mitigate climate change.

More careful regulation is what will make it even cleaner and safer.
