All the money being wasted on wind farms / solar panels /carbon offset taxes could go on developing Thorium fuelled reactors. So safe one could have local community nuclear power stations. Thorium reactors run at normal atmospheric pressure and fail safe and have a radioactive waste level barely 1% of the present devices.

Thorium was never used previously because it does not have the byproduct of nuclear bomb material.

Shouldn't be a problem nowadays!
