Letter to The Times (unpublished) re nuclear vs renewables debate

The Editor, The Times


Sir,

I wonder whether Chris Huhne factored the estimated £70 billion cost of storing Britain's nuclear waste into his equation on the comparative unit cost of generating electricity by new nuclear stations or the now-cancelled Severn barage?  Now that Huhne has predictably reversed the previous government's cast-iron pledge that no taxpayer money would be used in the building of the new nuclear stations, it is plain for all to see the green credentials of this government are but flotsam floating in the Severn Estuary.

Yours faithfully,

John Slinger
