    Having been a scientist, in the nuclear energy industry since the fifties (now well retired!), I cannot help remarking on the attitudes which seem to see oil and gas. originally, coal, as being solely fuels.
    They are indeed the feedstock of a huge section of industry.
    Nuclear energy as electricity could be increased some three times as a power source, expensive in origin, but of considerable longevity, and cleanliness.
    As long as fundamental industries, gas, water and electricity are run as sources of profit, not for national prosperity, I see a difficult path ahead for net zero ambitions.
