Greenpeace UK is asking people to Sign The Petition, asking the government to start investing in renewables, instead of wasting billions on Hinkle
UK Government: Don’t Waste Billions Of £s On Nuclear Power
Update, September 2016: The government has now approved Hinkley. But you can still sign the petition and we’ll keep you posted on how we can work together to stop the nuclear plant from being built.
Government plans to build a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset are shaping up to be a disaster. Hinkley’s already 8 years overdue. And by the time it’s finished it’ll be the most expensive object on earth.
After the Brexit vote, Prime Minister Theresa May has announced a fresh review of Hinkley — meaning the whole project could be on the rocks.
Let’s seize this moment to pile the pressure on Theresa May and the new Chancellor Philip Hammond. A huge petition could be enough to convince them to abandon Hinkley and back cheaper, cleaner renewable power instead.
The petition is addressed to Prime Minister Theresa May and Chancellor Philip Hammond. It asks that they:
Don’t waste billions of pounds building Hinkley Point nuclear plant. Please invest government spending in renewable energy instead.
