UK public backs nuclear

31 August 2007

An overwhelming majority of people in the UK believe that nuclear power will have a role to play in meeting Britain’s future energy needs, according to a recent survey.

Despite continued opposition from environmental campaigners, nearly two thirds of those surveyed by Populus on behalf of the UK’s Times newspaper said they believed that nuclear power will form part of an overall energy mix in the future, alongside coal, gas and renewables. According to the poll, more than 20% believe that nuclear generation is the best way of tackling climate change, although 20% remain opposed to nuclear power “under any circumstance.”
