The paper compares the choices available for electricity production. Different sources are examined from the prospective of effectiveness, controllability, availability, demand, safety, climate change, environmental, social factors, economics and sustainability. This is achieved using existing and projected data. A sample survey is undertaken of different countries, specific installations and their acceptance by their communities. The paper concludes by discussing some of the political arguments and the scientific and social implications and looking at the way ahead for the future.
