Power dressing


I was disappointed to see that 74% of those in the NCE500 survey thought that new nuclear power stations should be built in the UK.

Nuclear power stations are expensive to build, very expensive to decommission, the waste is not easy to deal with and, should anything go wrong, can be a disaster to mankind and the environment.

So why go there, plough the money into developing and building renewables instead. Like it or not, it is what we will have to do eventually so why wait?
