Abstract We agree with Brook and Bradshaw (2015) that pragmatic decisions on future energy mixes should be made without prejudice. They assessed different techniques for electricity generation based on a selected number of criteria. Using a multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA), they concluded that nuclear energy ranked particularly well relative to costs for biodiversity in terms of land consumption and human safety risks.
