The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

People Against Wylfa B (PAWB) has warned for years of the coming financial failure of Wylfa nuclear project

Wales Online 11th Jan 2019 , The campaigning group People Against Wylfa B (PAWB) said in a statement: “Should the news be confirmed at a meeting of the Hitachi Board next week
then it will be a relief for all of us who worry about the future of our
island, our country, our language, our environment and indeed renewable
energy.

PAWB has warned for years that the costs associated with the Wylfa
project would be likely to prove fatal to the project, but we were ignored.
“Consequently, millions of taxpayers’ money from the island, Wales and
the UK was invested to back Wylfa B. In addition huge political capital has
been invested, and there has been a failure to have a mature public
discussion about the project other than in terms of cash and jobs.

“The legacy of this, if the reports from Japan prove to be true, is that over a
decade has been wasted on Wylfa, with very little alternative economic
planning in evidence. Our young people have been promised jobs on very
shaky foundations. “Good land has been destroyed to create infrastructure
to back the project. It is time for politicians and officials from the UK
Government, the Welsh Government and Anglesey to admit that they were
wrong. “Wales is rich in natural resources which can be used to create a
vibrant and sustainable energy future, and above all else create more jobs
in less time than Wylfa would have done.”
