David Unsustainable Willets

I heard David "Two Brains" Willetts, the Tory Trade and Industry speaker, describe nuclear power as "sustainable" on the Today programme this morning.

What a display of ignorance. Nuclear power could meet the world's electricity needs for up to 5 years with high grade ores. After that - huge cleanup costs.

When a major politician, widely regarded for the large size of his brain, is confused about the very term "sustainable", and his error goes unchallenged by the Today interviewers, what chance do we have of saving the environment?
