There is a book I was lent recently. Written in 1994, by P W Agnew, it is called "The Efficient Alternative". Its sub-title is "How we can do away with nuclear power, reduce pollution, conserve natural resources and save money". Quite.
Although born in 1927, Pat Agnew was always ahead of his time. An engineer all his life, he was extolling combined heat and power in the 1960s. He designed small scale hydro plants, foreshadowing today’s community renewables. And, towards the end of his career, he inspired a generation of engineering students at Glasgow University.
