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

If nuclear is at the heart of our trip to net-zero, then it is a rotten heart.

A substantial step forward, or huge letdown? The green economy reacts to the Net-Zero Strategy. The UK’s Net-Zero Strategy is finally here, but the reaction to the nation’s blueprint to decarbonisation ranges from those believing it provides much-needed clarity for business to others claiming it does nowhere near enough to drive all parts of the economy to net-zero by 2050.

Tom Burke, chair, E3G said “New nuclear power can do nothing to help the UK achieve a net-zero power system by 2035. It will, however, take away a huge amount of public investment from things that could get us to net-zero cheaper and faster. If nuclear is at the heart of our trip to net-zero, then it is a rotten heart.”
