How the nuclear industry plays the statistics and formulae for working out the costs of decommissioning whilst vying for funding. The costs are obviously underestimated by orders of magnitude. Sellafield cost have risen to more than double in the last decade.

The future of the costs will be borne by the tax payer and the real costs may be even higher that we have estimated now.
