Why Nuclear Power makes No Sense for the UK – third briefing

The third in a series of Briefings, written by Tony Juniper, Jonathon Porritt and Charles Secrett and me, is released today. They are released 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.

This third Briefing, The New Nuclear Industry, can be downloaded by following this link.

The first Briefing, Subsidising the Nuclear Industry, was released on 26th March, and can be accessed here, and the second Briefing, Investing in Nuclear: Current Concerns, can be accessed here.

Still to come are:
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.
