1900 km Long Wind Farm Coming to a City Near You

Nuclear Power is Sooooo Expensive !!

So goes the Urban Myth.

What do we want? - Electricity !
What do we pay for? - kWh
What's the best value?

Onshore Wind costs 62% more 
per kWh than Nuclear

And how many Dorenells = 1 Hinkley?

1,543,000,000,000 ÷ 14,235,000,000 = 108

108 Dorenells cost:           £39.4bn 
1 Hinkley costs:                  £24.5bn !

What size would 108 Dorenells be?

It would be a [108 x 15.5 =] 1,674 sq km Wind Farm !

But Hinkley's site is only 0.87 km wide x 0.87 km long.
 So how long would a Wind Farm be 
if it were only 0.87 km wide?
It would be: [1,674 ÷ 0.87 =]        1900 km long !

"..I just love the sight of those majestic Wind Turbines.."

but please - Not In My City Yard !

That's NIMCYs for you !

If the Influential, Idiotic Supporters of Wind Energy, like Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth and WWF, along with their duped Media Quizlings, have their way, 16 GW of New Nuclear will be replaced by Wind Turbines.

If Hinkley's 3.2 GW of Nuclear Power costs £14.9bn less than the equivalent number of wind farms, 
16 GW of New Nuclear would save £74.5bn

Hinkley Point C 1.6 p/kWh <<<<< Navitus Bay 4.7 p/kWh

Thank Goodness Navitus Bay Has Been Rejected !

Electricity from it would have cost nearly 
3 x more per kWh than electricity from Hinkley Point C !

The site is nearly 230 x the size of 
Hinkley Point C !

There's 6.8 x more 'Dream Jobs' at Hinkley Point C than there would have been 'Greenish Jobs' at Navitus Bay !

Hinkley Point C will supply 350 million home years - 20 x more than Navitus Bay's 17.5 million home years !

Nuclear Power Currently Saves The USA $34 Billion - Each and Every Year!

This report was linked in a piece headed 
'Renewed Interest in Nuclear Power'
Unfortunately, it doesn't pick out this not insignificant 
tit-bit of information!

Dear Mr President - $34,000,000,000 per year would pay for quite a few new build PRISM reactors, 
each and every year!


Save 10s of thousands of premature deaths of your esteemed electorate from atmospheric pollution
each and every year!

Also, have a look at the link to: [Japan] 
'are planning to bring 21 nuclear power plants online':

Australia's PRISMs and their No. 1 PRISMer

From The Studios of The Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Robyn Williams Introduces:
Dr Oscar Archer

Who says: 

Give Australia your nuclear waste, those poor unwanted masses so you can breathe free. The wretched refuse of your reactor storage caskets. Send this hopeless, tossed-away refuse to us! 

With this opening shot Dr Archer might well expect a rough ride:
"...and it [the concept] goes like this. Australia establishes the world’s first multinational repository for used fuel - what's often called nuclear waste..."

But it gets much better - 'Listen Now' or Download.

Alternatively, Click On 'Transcript - Show'

"...At maturity, Australia is primarily running on PRISM reactors fuelled by the used fuel we received. The world is running on a much larger number of Generation III+ reactors that we supply with our uranium exports under a fuel leasing model. 

The transition to PRISM world-wide is under-way on the back of Australia’s pioneering embrace of this technology with support of key partners. Australia is exporting the starter bundles of metal fuel from our own PRISM fleet while continuing to derive revenue from the multi-national repository and uranium exports..."

Now Dr Archer couldn't say fairer than that - could he?

It's well worth a 12 minutes listen of anybody's time!

Steve Jones Explains the Outcome of "...the Most Cynical Experiment ever carried out in Biology..."

Radioactivity - radiation - nuclear accidents - mutation - atom bombs - 1 million years of storage!

Powerful sound-bites, lacking in detail and comparative dangers can so easily distort the thinking of the reading, listening and viewing public. They just don't have the time or interest to research reality: Radiophobia 

The Japanese people were participants in this 'cynical experiment'. 

Mutational meltdown was anticipated. For 50 years, biologists and later, geneticists, watched the outcome unravel.

Let Steve Jones educate you in the outcome. 

Steve Jones is an impartial geneticist who, as far as I am aware, has never expressed an opinion or preference for nuclear or any other form of power generation. 

He tells us about the genetics of radiation - and then tells us a bit about mutations wrought by other than radiation. Chemical poisons and pollution are pervasive and widespread, causing mutational damage, in particular to the peoples of the less developed countries.

Just like anybody with a phobia, radiophobes need to worry. Listen and learn from Steve Jones - cease worrying about radiation and start to worry about prolonging the years of carcinogen output from every other form of power generation - including the manufacture of renewables.

Melvyn Bragg introduces the topic at 14:40 - Take it on board for goodness sake: GENETIC MUTATION

Stop Buying Birthday and Christmas Presents for your Grandchildren

Ken Caldeira experiences "Macabre Indifference" when doing the rounds, lecturing to those interested in environmental issues.

We're prepared to continue sending 2 million people a year to early graves, alter atmospheric chemistry and acidify oceans, because it would reduce our standard of living by a tiny amount

Stop buying birthday and Christmas presents for your grandchildren and give them a better planet to live on instead ! 

Caldeira on Climate Science and Choices
To paraphrase: 
If you asked a room-full of people - If your present energy system did not dump waste into the atmosphere and the oceans and a cheaper energy system was available that did do that, would you choose to save a tiny amount of your income to adopt the new system? The result would be - "...almost nobody has ever come up and been willing to take that trade..."

Ask the question in reverse - meaning would most people give up a tiny amount of their income for an emissions-free, less polluting system? The result would be - "...they're reluctant to do that..." 

Caldeira on Climate Science and Choices (Pt. 2)
"...we can act ethically, when acting ethically is cheap, but when acting ethically is expensive, we tend to cut corners.

And so, having cheap, feasible, alternative energy technologies, that are environmentally benign, seems central..."

And this is what Ken Caldeira and James Hansen are prepared to go public about:
'To those Influencing Environmental Policy But Opposed to Nuclear Power'

Four Seasoned Nuclear Scientists Endorse Nuclear Energy Push by Four Climate Scientists.

What do they know? - Well, there's maybe 200 year's worth of experience and in-depth knowledge of nuclear power generation.

Maybe, just maybe - we, the general public, who don't give a you-know-what to where our energy comes from, as long as it's there 24/7, on demand, should pay due consideration to what they have to say and the energy security nuclear power gives us !
