But The Government Continues To Back A Failing Horse

The government has thrown its weight behind a joint venture between Toshiba, of japan, and GDF Suez, of France, to build a £10 billion nuclear reactor facility in Cumbria. The chancellor has signed a preliminary deal to work with the NuGen venture towards providing an infrastructure guarantee to help it raise funding for the Moorside project. If built, the facility, comprising three reactors, could provide up to 7 per cent of the UK’s electricity. From The Times 3’d December 2014 WES

David Cameron claimed yesterday the public was fed up with onshore wind farms and said the country did not need any more subsidised turbines on land now that the energy source was capable of providing 10% of UK energy. He said: “Let’s get rid of the subsidy, put them into the planning system. If they can make their case they will make their case. I suspect they won’t and we’ll have a reasonable amount of onshore wind, we’ll have safer electricity supplies as a result but enough is enough and I‘m very clear about that”.
