Stop Sizewell C! Wrong Project, Wrong Time, Wrong Place.

EDF’s plans to build two new nuclear reactors at Sizewell in east Suffolk will have a devastating impact on this unique and magical place and is too slow and expensive compared to alternatives in the fight against Climate Change. The decision whether or not to give Sizewell C planning consent is due on 8 July.

"It is testament to the sheer incompetence of EDF that #HinkleyC has become Britain’s most radioactive construction project and it hasn’t even been built yet" writes Ben Marlow
And yet, incredibly, EDF harbours ambitions to build another plant in the UK, at #SizewellC in Suffolk.

Alistair Osborne writes: "Critics seized on the latest overruns to point out the risks to Boris Johnson’s blueprint for another 24 gigawatts of new nuclear power by 2050. The Stop Sizewell C lobby group pointed out that, while EDF and CGN are on the hook for Hinkley’s “rocketing costs”, a proposed new financing model would see consumers paying upfront via higher bills for cost overruns. “The £20 billion estimate for Sizewell C is already two years out of date, with zero chance of it being delivered at that cost,” it said, noting that the risk of spiralling costs would “fall on consumers”.

Doug Parr, Greenpeace’s UK policy director, said: “The government’s big bet on nuclear is backfiring with every extra billion added to the bill”. He advocated investment in offshore wind instead.

.@StopSizewellC said #HinkleyC's "rocketing costs should send investors considering #SizewellC running for the hills. #EDF once again has to suck up this price hike but Sizewell C's will fall on consumers. Sizewell C is risky, expensive and in no-one's interest except EDF's"

Least surprising story of the year:
French nuke energy company EDF says Hinkley Point C = another 1-year delay + £8bn over budget. £18bn contract price (2016) became £22bn. Now £26bn. 2025 launch put back to 2027.
Good news? EDF covers extra costs.
