Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima

Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

IBM Poll----What people think of nuclear energy......

Some interesting answers to a few of their questions – public unwilling to pay and not convinced of the gov’s case for new build:

Two thirds of consumers polled supported a greater nuclear capability if it meant that the risk of losing energy supplies was greatly reduced.

Consumers currently unwilling to absorb the extra cost incurred by the development of the plants - only one in five respondents expressed a willingness to pay more, even in order to reduce carbon emissions.

Nearly 75% of consumers polled believed that the case for new nuclear power hasn't been delivered with any great clarity despite publication of the NPSs.

At present nearly twice as many people surveyed rate public consultation ahead of ensuring the plants are built on time - 47% compared to 24%.

Consumer perceptions not yet aligned with the industry's plans.

The consumers keen to take action on curbing carbon emissions - 33% felt it is essential, while over 70% replied positively to this point.

Over a third of Britons polled feel it's very important to make significant reductions in carbon (38%) with over 77% replying positively.
