The lights are going out in Britain

The UK’s government (in office since 1997) is even more incompetent than I ever dreamed. Great Britain is facing a looming shortage of power-generating capacity and will probably begin seeing brownouts as soon as 2013.

Most of Britain’s nuclear plants will have reached the end of their service life and be shut down without being replaced. About half of Britain’s coal-fired plants will be shut down because of pollution controls. Nuclear and coal together account for 45% of Britain’s electricity.
