CND Launches Case Against New Nuclear Power Stations

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament has launched its case against a new generation of nuclear power stations, ‘Nuclear Power: Why we say no to a new generation’. As reports indicate that Tony Blair has made up his mind to build new power stations in the UK CND has slammed the government’s attempts to repackage nuclear power as the clean green solution to climate change and outlined the case for a genuinely sustainable, global and green solution to our energy needs. Kate Hudson, Chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament,said:- “Government spin doctors and the nuclear industry myth makers are working over time to repackage nuclear power as the green solution to climate change. They want to shape public opinion because they are about to announce a new build programme of nuclear power stations and they know that we won’t like it. Nuclear power is dirty and dangerous. It’s not the answer to Britain\'s energy needs and is not a solution to global warming. We need a safe, genuinely sustainable, global, and green solution.”
