Nuclear shock

Robert Palgrave (Letters, 12 March) may well be right about the problems faced by nuclear energy.

However, the claim that the uranium comes from ‘politically unstable countries’ might come as a shock to Canadians and Australians (28 per cent and 23 per cent of world production respectively according to the World Nuclear Association).

On the more substantive issue of Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) which sounds sensible, there are a few private equity companies with plenty of cash to spare and in need of some good PR.

Maybe Mr Palgrave should try to put their money where his mouth is.
