Nuclear obsolete?

From Stop Hinkley

Anti-nuclear campaigners have called on EDF Energy to give up its nuclear ambitions for Somerset and elsewhere following a report from a multinational investment bank which says it is time to: “join the solar revolution”. The bank, UBS, says large centralised power stations, like the proposed £16 billion Hinkley Point C nuclear power station on the West Somerset coast, could be obsolete within ten to 20 years. It says large power stations will soon become extinct because they are too big and inflexible, and are “not relevant” for future electricity generation.

The Green Party notices on the BBC website that nuclear reactors shut down for safety reasons won't be operational until the end of the year. So much for nuclear reliability.

Stop Hinkley is an independent campaigning group not affiliated to the Green Party. We support them because we share their view that nuclear power is too dangerous and unsustainable. We are glad to share news, press releases, events and announcements from any group, organisation, charity, or business that share our aims and beliefs.
