Climate change will bring sea level rise – bringing danger to Hinkley Point C nuclear site.

Burnham-on-sea.com 1st Aug 2018 , EDF reject fears Hinkley C will be vulnerable to sea level rise. T


The Stop
Hinkley Campaign has written to the Office for Nuclear Regulation to
express concern about recent reports that we could be heading for a
sea-level rise of as much as 6 metres during the lifetime of the Hinkley
Point C site.

Some researchers say sea levels could rise by six metres or
more even if the 2 degree target of the Paris accord is met.

Sustained warming of one to two degrees in the past has been accompanied by
substantial reductions of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets and sea
level rises of at least six metres – several metres higher than what
current climate models predict could occur by 2100.
