I found this bit interesting ...
"According to the OECD redbook, the world consumed 67 kilotonnes (150Χ106 lb) of uranium in 2002. Of that 36 kilotonnes (79Χ106 lb) of was produced from primary sources, with the balance coming from secondary sources, in particular stockpiles of natural and enriched uranium, decommissioned nuclear weapons, the reprocessing of natural and enriched uranium and the re-enrichment of depleted uranium tails."
In the above article, it says France ran out of uranium in 2002.
I'm sure I read or heard somewhere, that China are planning to build 80 nuclear power stations. Have just found another reference, they currently have 13, have 27 under construction, 50 planned, and 110 proposed (whatever that all means).
So I guess china will be mopping up a lot of Uranium demand. You can bet that China are "securing" their supply chain to ensure they get a source of uranium.
So anyway, have we already missed the boat in the UK ?
Will we be building nuclear power stations as the Uranium runs out ?
