UK: Rumours Persist about Blair Pro-Nuclear Positions

Blair is widely reported to favour a new generation of nuclear power stations. His chief scientific adviser, David King, has backed them as a reliable and carbon-free source of power.

During a session in The House of Commons this Tuesday Blair made the following statements concerning the question of nuclear power: “The facts have changed during the last couple of years” and “We have to make the decision we believe would give the largest long term profit for the country”.

UK is positionned as a champion of renewable energy, now with the (natural?) temptation to go nuclear.
Paradoxal ???
