The Sun Says: Nuclear Power? Yes Please.

Until now, the Government has argued that renewable energy sources like wind and solar power are the answer. But they’re not. The wind doesn’t blow all the time... That’s leaving aside the horrendous scars wind turbines leave on our beautiful countryside.

Horrendous scars you say? Don't worry, The Sun is already ahead of you when it comes to nuclear power and 'horrendous scars on our beautiful countryside'.

THE Chernobyl nuclear disaster has spawned a generation of ‘mutant’ super-brainy children.

Please remember, The Sun is owned by News International, sister company to Fox, who also own 20th Century Fox, who are producing X-Men III. Presumably the News of the World editorial tomorrow will be a mix of more anti-immigrant jingoism and enthusiasm for nuclear power as it will allow you to fire energy from your eyes and control the weather.
