UK moves on nuclear power misguided
15 Apr 2009
The decision by the UK government to press ahead with work on a new generation of nuclear plants is misguided according to Friends of the Earth Director, Oisin Coghlan:
"Nuclear power is not the solution to our climate and energy challenge. It offers too little, too late, at too high a price and too high a risk. Even doubling the UK's nuclear plant would only reduce carbon emissions by less than 10%. And nobody in Ireland trusts the UK government to handle the plants and the waste responsibly."
