The environmental impact of electricity generation


Last week, Cumbria County Council voted against allowing further development of plans to construct an underground storage facility for nuclear waste in the county (Cumbria nuclear project rejected by councillors). This may well not be the end of the line, as one local District Council still wants to proceed with the next, exploratory, stage. However, for matters such as this, the County Council’s decision would normally trump that of other local authorities, so this is a serious blow to the project.
