The Impact of Nuclear Power on Essex. Meet Natalie Bennett & Andy Blowers
Thu 8 December 2016, 19:30 – 22:00 GMT
If you are interested to learn more about nuclear power in our region, Natalie Bennett, former leader of the Green Party of England & Wales and Prof Andy Blowers, Chair of BANNG - Blackwater Against New Nuclear Group
will be conducting an interactive discussion covering:
• Nuclear Power – The Chinese have been given the nod to build a new nuclear reactor at Bradwell-on-Sea and EDF have been given the nod to build another one at Sizewell in Suffolk.
• Nuclear Waste – Magnox have been dumping intermediate nuclear waste into the Blackwater Estuary near Maldon for about 18 months. Magnox have been authorised to import more waste from at least 2 other nuclear plants, making Bradwell-on-Sea (25 miles from Chelmsford) the new Sellafield nuclear dump.
