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

Greenpeace scathing about Boris Johnson’s plan for nuclear power.

 In response to reports that the Prime Minister wants to generate 25% of
the UK’s electricity from nuclear power, Dr Doug Parr, Chief Scientist
for Greenpeace UK, said –“Aside from the still-unresolved hazards
particular to nuclear power, the Prime Minister’s plan for 25% of power
from nuclear suggests some short memories – both Thatcher and Blair had big
plans for nuclear which ran into the sand because the technology was
expensive, slow, and prone to mishaps.

This initiative will result in lots
of time, effort and ministerial bandwidth being spent on things that
don’t deliver whilst the real solutions to our energy and climate crisis
languish with inadequate support.” Greenpeace 22nd March 2022https://www.greenpeace.org.uk/press-centre/
