Hinkley row exposes flaws in planning reform


"embarking on a new generation of nuclear power means generating an unthinkable and massive amount of nuclear waste." I trust that we are capable of thinking about the amount of waste generated and quantifying it. How do future waste predictions compare with the amount of nuclear waste we currently have to manage? Perhaps if we start to produce enough nuclear waste we can begin to reap the benefits of economies of scale? Politicians will continue to kick the problem of waste storage (and infrastructure planning reform) into the long grass - it is not a problem which significantly worsens over the 4 year period for which they are accountable.
