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

The fourth Briefing, The Wider Economic Impacts of Nuclear Power, can be downloaded here, and focusses on:

– Costs
– The European Single Market
– Carbon Leakage
– Impact on the UK Jobs Market
– Job Generation

Already released are:
1) Subsidising the Nuclear Industry- accessed here.
2) Investing in Nuclear: Current Concens- accessed here.
3) The New Nuclear Industry- accessed here

Still to come are:
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.
