Nuclear UAE

Yikes, they're doing it! This is wrong on so many levels. The money spent building a nuclear power station would be better used in developing solar power. The risk of terrorist attack is high, but the risk of another Chernobyl or Three Mile Island catastrophe is greater (based on past experience of how the power sector in the UAE has performed). It's just too scary for words: I wonder which Northern Emirate will be lucky enough to play host to this baby.

They'll build another island for it, won't they? It would be one way to get power to The World. ;.)

considering their approach to cheap labour and subsequent low quality of many things they do, it might not be a good idea to build a big nuclear thing...
