    Typical stuck up racism from that English woman. I get her points about the government spending billions on something that's going to take far too long to deliver any benefits when we need those benefits now, but the fact it's not "British"? Who the fuck cares? Implying there's a bigger UK nuclear company who are planning to build new reactors here. Answer: there aren't! At least EDF are actually doing something about it. What, she doesn't trust foreign companies? 😂 My god.

    Should be built by a British company, using British Labour and materials. Not a Foreign outfit with questionable links to Hostile Countries.

    Lol it'll take 20 years and probably never get built..coal is the answer but the wokeists will do everything they can to destroy cheap effective energy

    "All the Uranium comes from Russia"

    It's amazing how wrong people can be. Russia is only the 6th largest exporter of Uranium, at 2,635 tonnes U. Compare this with
    Kazakhstan: 21,819 tonnes U

    Namibia: 5,753 tonnes U

    Canada: 4,693 tonnes U

    Australia: 4,192 tonnes U

    About bloody time, we can not rely on big fans and sunshine, especially as they are a recycling nightmare and we have to rely on China to supply so much of it equally we should not be having a French company or any other country anywhere near our power supply it should be British paying back into Britain. The climate emergency is the biggest con and scam ever, possibly second to covid. We need to be self-sufficient in as many ways as possible and we should also consider what we personally need to do to ensure the freedom of each person and as a nation.

    January 27, 2024 at 9:30 pm

    By the time it's built the U.K. population will have increased by 7,000,000.
    It'll just be keeping pace with the current disastrous mess that the U.K. is in.

    If my tax money goes to 10 of these, I'm not complaining. The reason these haven't been built before is the same reason nikola tesla had his nose put out. Cheap/free energy.

    At last. A sensible, practical energy decision.

    If just one of these power stations goes pop, like Fukushima or Chernobyl, a sizeable part of this tiny island will be rendered uninhabitable. Nuclear power has never been economically viable, it has relied on huge government subsidies, and the nuclear industry has no solution for disposal of waste products which remain hazardous for thousands of years, with some remaining radioactive for hundreds of thousands of years. Nuclear has always been the most expensive way to generate electricity, bar none. By far the cheapest now, without any subsidies, is onshore wind. The recent development of sand batteries makes it possible to have low cost grid-scale storage.

    So in the next ten to fifteen years we go short because our dumb politicians have shutdown coal and gas fired power stations and also shutdown much of renewable energy industries.
    Whether we like it or not, we need a mix of energy sources.

  41. @andrewwhite1065

    January 27, 2024 at 9:30 pm

    Enrich uranium in the UK and buy the resourse from down under.

    Rolls Royce and their 'compact' reactor outputs around 440 MWe, but no mention in the segment of what the very large Sizewell C plant output will be, only how many homes it can power.

    Good move nevertheless, because you really can't find a cleaner, safe and more reliable energy source right now…..
    and fussion could still be another 20 years before it's perfected and commercialised, or something else comes along.

    a decision that should have been made 20yrs ago

    Get back to coal, exploit the energy, use the filters developed at Drax, and improve them, its possible, if we can afford to splurge billions on the unnecessary fighting of a cold, on the unnecessary HS2, on funding a war that has nothing to do with us, we can spend money on our non-dependent important infrastructure. We need time Until they crack fusion energy. They often complain about China, alongside its vast renewables programme, using coal-fired power stations, It would appear a necessary strategy given the energy needs of 1.5billion consumers, it is also the necessary strategy for a population of 65 million, as, if anyone cares to check, having the largest renewable policy bar none in the world, still isn't enough. The UK has a population of 65+ million, and produces roughly 1% of the worlds pollution emissions, China @ 225 times the population, produces 25-28%, which could suggest that they have more control over their emissions than the UK, which given that China produces a huge swathe of the global supply chain, and has civil engineering projects on a biblical scale, where the UK has very little now, could also suggest they are more on top of it, than simple data would represent.
