      Emotive question!! Lots of people are likely to have strong opinions on this one. I’d have to say “not good” having watched a documentary on the inhabitants of Japan’s north east coast following the tsunami disaster last year. The nuclear plant explosions which followed may mean that the area affected may not be habitable for generations to come. Nuclear reactors are unrealiable in hot weather and climate change predictions show a global 2-4°C temperature rise by 2100.
