No clear vision

One of the elected representatives who covers the People’s Republic has a few words to say about nuclear power.

Head honcho of all things liberal in Europe, South West (and Gibraltar) MEP Graham Watson told the PRSD: “This region has huge potential sources for generating energy from renewable sources including a Severn Tidal Barrage, which could, if wetlands habitats can be protected, be an even larger investment in infrastructure and jobs.

“While I welcome the possible investment and jobs that new nuclear plants may bring to the region, the current Government’s review comes after over 10 years of indecision, where earlier emphasis and investment in sustainable energy could have filled the energy gap that these plans now seek to fill.

“With climate change a pressing problem, investment in a barrage across the Severn would be part of a more unified approach to power generation under the European Strategy for Sustainable, Competitive and Secure Energy.”
