Why Nuclear Power makes No Sense for the UK

I will be running a series of Briefings along with Tony Juniper, Jonathon Porritt and Charles Secrett, following our letter of 12th March to the Prime Minister warning him that his plans for another generation of nuclear reactors are ill-conceived and doomed to failure.

To substantiate the broad arguments advanced in that Note to the Prime Minister, we are producing a series of six supplementary Briefings released throughout March and

The first of these- 1) Subsidising the Nuclear Industry– can be downloaded here.

Still to come are:
2) Investing in Nuclear: Current Concerns
3) The State of the Nuclear Industry
4) Nuclear Power: Wider Economic Considerations
5) Why Nuclear Power is Not the Answer to Climate Change or Energy Security
6) Nuclear Power: A Toxic Issue for the Coalition Government

To mark the release of the final briefing on 2nd May, the four of us will be holding a press conference in London.
