Far from being the solution to climate change, nuclear power will be a victim of global heating

Rae Street: Given the discussion at TUC Congress of a new generation of
nuclear plants, it is worth looking at the case against nuclear energy.
First, the question of climate change, where the proponents of nuclear
power say nuclear energy is “vital.”

According to Andrew Blowers, emeritus professor of social sciences at the Open University: “Far from
being a solution to the problem of climate change, new nuclear power
stations like Sizewell C and Bradwell B on the fragile and vulnerable east
coast, are likely to become victims of the inevitable, imminent and
irreversible consequences of global warming.” He continued:

“Put simply, there is little justification for these huge structures in terms of
need. But, regardless of need, given the threat to the integrity of the
sites and the risks to present and future generations and environments, the
proposals should be scrapped forthwith.”
