This saturday from 10 am till 12 noon Radiation Free Lakeland and others will hold a Demonstration outside the Moorside CONsultation in Whitehaven. Those who should be shouting the loudest at the destruction of internationally protected habitats have instead put their shoulders to the wheel to facilitate the nuclear juggernaught. Cumbria Wildlife Trust have said that they feel Moorside is just too big, too nasty and and too entrenched in government policy to fight. They have said this to thousands of Cumbrian wildlife enthusiasts. Those thousands of people, the very people who would be shouting about the biggest and nastiest nuclear development in Europe have been told that “there is no option to stop this happening.” This alone makes NuGen’s CONsultation a sham. Not content with this, Cumbria Wildlife Trust have “teamed up” with NuGen at Gillerthwaite Moss, Ennerdale. This is exactly the same area that has previously been eyed up for geological dumping of heat generating waste – a win win? The nuclear industry and the pro nuclear forces in government must be laughing their cotton socks off.
