Nuclear power is here to stay
THREE years ago our Government said it could not visualise any future role for nuclear power and that all future energy needs should come from a green renewable mix such as wind power. Well now we have it, confirmation of a new generation of nuclear power
THREE years ago our Government said it could not visualise any future role for nuclear power and that all future energy needs should come from a green renewable mix such as wind power.
Well now we have it, confirmation of a new generation of nuclear power stations. What a difference a few years make.
France now receives 80 per cent of its energy from nuclear power. Unlike the UK, France had decisive leadership and committal. Meanwhile back in 'Old Blighty' we were busy, digging up our national heritage (the countryside) and sticking 400ft industrial windmills (as some less informed still call them) in the ground.
Concern about nuclear energy may be understandable. However, the impact of climate change and global warming far outweigh any possible fears about such energy generation.

Like it or not nuclear power is here to stay. The Government cannot afford both wind and nuclear. This action may see an end to the futile and expensive turbine-ization of the countryside. It is too late for Fenland, but others may benefit from this Government U-turn. The only winners from turbine development are the developer, operator and landowner. The environment is, of course, the sacrificial lamb.
