UK Government: Don't Waste Billions Of £s On Nuclear Power
Government plans to build a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset are shaping up to be a disaster. Hinkley is already 8 years overdue. And if the nuclear plant is ever finished, it'll be the most expensive object on earth.
Even though Theresa May has given the project the thumbs up after becoming prime minister, plans to build it could still turn to dust. There are fears that EDF - the French energy firm constructing Hinkley’s reactor - could go bankrupt. And no one’s sure if crucial technology set to be used in the nuclear plant will ever work.
Sign the petition to tell Theresa May that her government's new 'industrial strategy' should focus on cheaper, cleaner renewable power - not ploughing billions of pounds into new nuclear.
