Today it has been announced that Oldbury remains one of the sites the government consider suitable for new nuclear reactors.
We at SANE (Shepperdine Against Nuclear Energy) have the following views:-
"It is far too premature to determine the full effects of Fukushima and the potential disasters that could still emanate from there
The German government and people have decided to close the existing nuclear power stations, The Italians voted in a referendum to scrap any plans for new nuclear
We with the French now stand alone in Europe as totally unmoved by the potential disasters that can be caused by nature or humans in their planning and control systems.
The disaster in Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant was caused, not by the tsunami or earthquake, but by the human beings who built a nuclear power station close to an earthquake zone.
Our government risks building nuclear power plants in areas of amazingly high flood risk in a country that is, sadly, prone to significant terrorist risks without due consideration for the many generations to come
We ,with our colleagues from the other seven sites, will continue to be involved with discussions with DECC as we go forward, I can also envisage a lot of anxiety from the members of Shepperdine Against Nuclear Energy.
We will be supporting Hinkley and Wylfa in their struggles as the potential first sites to be developed.
It is our intention to strengthen our links with municipalities in Germany to stop their energy companies, E.on and RWE, from building new nuclear in the UK.
We believe the moral standpoint of the German people and their government casts shame on our own feeble leaders in this matter.
The energy and power remains with us as a conscious set of people who fully understand the full ramifications of a complete lack of vision in energy policy in the UK.......It is us who will pay!
We pledge to peacefully halt new nuclear and to close down the existing old and risky sites, and we will overcome!"
