    1. Dr Martin: new types of nuclear power station: pebble bed reactor (rolls royce have used it, China has taken the patents without permission), Indian thorium reactor (could be cheaper than uranium, less radioactive, can’t make bombs with it)

    2. chernobyl was a weird anomaly which should never happen again. mass produced nuclear power would be much safer. at chernobyl a man turned off all of the safety controls and ran his own experiments.
