    Have you considered how much extra renewable energy would be needed to remove the need for a nuclear power station, where would the standby power be coming from for when the renewables are not generating ?

    There is a need for this power station, why try to block it.

    Just noticed it is a greenpeace thing, or in other words do everything that they can to send us back to the stonage.

    The amounts of money that will need to be spent on this - 18 bn would go a long way in renewables ie wind, wave, solar & hydro.

    Doesn't remove the need for backup generation, so still need the nuclear plant

    Stupid Greenpeace, not realising that nuclear is a more realistic way to tackle global warming and that global warming is a bigger threat than radiation.

    Of course it'd be ideal if we were 100% renewable but that's not realistic

    No & it won't be if the will isn't there, nor the investment. Seems rather a heap of money to throw at something that other countries are not as enthusiastic about - even the PM is stalling.
