Re: Hinckley Point C

Hi

This is something I have highlighted earlier.

We do not own or operate our Nuclear Power Stations, the new Hinckley Point is a joint Chinese/French Scheme and we are committed to buy electricity from it at very expensive rates.

The cost we will be paying for our electricity will rise by over 60%.

The biggest cost is decommissioning and disposal of waste, both of which the UK is solely responsible for.

We cannot nationalise without compensation.

I thought they had found a way to greatly reduce waste? Nuclear is technically the cleanest power. The waste is miniscule in volume. As long as we don't put Homer in charge....

as to poor commissioning decisions, well there's no surprise there.

Hi

Nuclear is only clean in terms of carbon emissions.

We have vast amounts of nuclear waste untreated.

Yes. Why don't we just give up?

Well we COULD nationalise without any compensation with the agreement of parliament. Might not be too popular but what the hell?

As for the surcharge on electricity produced by Hinckley Point - perfectly understandable. The construction cost must be recouped.

Not when you take into consideration the total carbon footprint from breaking ground to final end-of-life shutdown. The carbon footprint of producing all the required concrete and cement, alone, is frighteningly high.

The VAST majority of which is low level waste that is no real problem at all.

Hi

Your misunderstanding of the issue is stunning.
