Renewable Energy Costs in Britain

There are a lot of parallels between the issues addressed in this article and the challenges that are currently being dealt with in the US. Even with Britain’s current dismal economy, the administration is continuing to push for clean energy through nuclear and wind power. Just like in the US, these cleaner forms of energy cost more than the current forms of energy (coal and natural gas), and require economic incentives in order to even be considered. Perhaps this can be an example that even in tough economic times, the beginnings of a transition to cleaner energy forms is possible.
