Now, the British Government has approved another nuclear power station, at Hinkley Point in the Bristol Channel, risking further pollution into the Irish and Celtic Seas. There are proposals for additional nuclear power stations in Sellafield, Wylfa, Oldbury, Heysham, all on the Irish Sea coastline. If approved, these will be in addition to the 16 nuclear facilities (power stations, military and research facilities) stretching from the Bristol Bay, in the south, up to Ayrshire, in Scotland, all of which are potential or actual pollutants of the Irish Sea.
These are of no benefit to the people of Ireland, but are potential killers, a la Fukushima, in 2011, Chernobyl, in 1986, or Sellafield (Windscale), in 1957. There are safer, cheaper, and more environmentally sustainable forms of energy. Stop this nuclear madness.
