New UK Minister of Energy and Climate Change: nuclear power a "dead end"
May 22, 2010

The London Telegraph reports that the new U.K. Minister of Energy and Climate Change, Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne, has previously stated that “No private sector investor has built a nuclear power station anywhere in the world without lashings of government subsidy since Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. The World Bank refuses to lend on nuclear projects because of the long history of overruns. Our message is clear, No to nuclear, as it is not a short cut, but a dead end.”
