'smart ways of seeing numbers' - the BBC like the 2050 Calculator!

In The BBC News Magazine, Go Figure, Michael Blastland says:
"If you've somehow missed it elsewhere, the DECC 2050 energy calculator is worth looking up."

Nuclear power appears to be the best bang-for-the-buck option from my quick poke at the model.

Good to see this done in a way that is so easily accessible.

There are two other key factors I think it should deal with:
- Gas supply. Where does the model assume we can get gas from, given the depletion of North Sea resources?
- Population increase. This is set "as a given" - I think it would be good to allow us to see what happens if policies to limit population growth were introduced.

a solar energy car made by amateurs have crossed Australia. Why Car´s factories do not want to know that?, petroleum´s economic interests. Shame politicians
