The nuclear circus is in town!

Yes... after seeing the paltry effort on global warming on SBS last night, that showed a greenie turning into a yellow cake eater, I think it’s time to put a few facts straight:

All stats approx ± 5 % of ranges

ELECTRICITY
in 2005 the world consumes 20 millions Gwh
in 1970 the world consumed 5.5 millions Gwh
an increase of 360 % in electricity consumption in 35 years

33 % in industrialised countries
91 % in developing countries
