Surely SONE mistake?

Letters to the editor

There is no point in filling your magazine with arguments for and against the economics of nuclear power if advocates like Bernard Ingham are still writing off construction and decommissioning costs so that the bit in the middle can be presented as a cost effective means of producing power. We laughed that one off years ago!

Please do us all a favour - next time you quote a member of SONE or similar, please put something in brackets after their claim of economic power production. May I suggest that you add [but only with trick accounting - ed.]!

Chris Johnson,

Have your say
