Why Britain doesn't need new nuclear power Friends of the Earth submission to UK energy review

Issued on: 11 July 2006



The British government is considering building a new generation of nuclear power stations to replace the generation that will start to be decommissioned over the next 10 years. If this happens it will extend the life of the Sellafield nuclear facility for decades to come and kill any chance of lifting the nuclear shadow from Ireland.

Friends of the Earth in Britain is campaigning hard to prevent a revivial of nuclear power and this document is a media briefing they produced on their submission to the UK government's energy review.
