There's a programme on BBC TV tomorrow about the design and building of the UK's latest nuclear submarine. The preview said that each costs 1 billion UK pounds to build!! Couple this with the 100 billion pounds we are likely to spend on upgrading Trident nuclear weapons and we are talking about a huge amount of money. I find these sums on such weaponry obscene and plain wrong. If similar amounts were invested in the search for sustainable energy sources I'd be much happier.
