Beyond Pro-Nuclear Propaganda: Pandora’s False Promises

A summary of a report debunking the myth of Nuclears environmental claims.  Nuclear has a large carbon-footprint that proponents of nuclear never talk about.  It also would mean this country would be dependant on imported ore that is becoming scarce, 1-1.5% per tonne of material mined.  The UK has spent over £50 billion on building and running nuclear plants and it will cost an additional £50 billion to de-commission redundant plant.  This dwarfs the amount of money spent of renewables and the amount of money the fossil fuel companies avoid through tax-breaks, given them by the UK Government.
