UK Nuclear Plan Criticized

UK Prime minister says nuclear power could improve the security of the UK's energy supply and help climate change.

Ex-environment minister Michael Meacher has told Tony Blair it was "patently untrue" that nuclear power was needed for the UK to meet emissions targets.

Mr Meacher explained "steady expansion" of renewable energy could allow the UK to meet its greenhouse gases targets. "We need nuclear like a hole in the head. The fact is, the 21st century, in the end, is going to be powered by solar energy."

"Renewable energy is the way forward".
