Article in the Independent – Hot off the press
For a long time now Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole have been saying: What is worse than a new coal mine? Opening up a new coal mine just five miles from the riskiest nuclear waste site in the world ! (slightly misquoted but the article nevertheless does a brilliant job of exposing the multiple disasters opening this coal mine would precipitate)
MANY THANKS to Donnachadh McCarthy of The Independent for having the tenacity and determination to get this published..
Here is an extract
“Just imagine if the government turned off all the electricity to all the homes in the UK. All the lights, all the electric heating, all the TVs, washing machines, fridges – everything. Even if they kept them turned off for 20 years, you still would not have saved all of the 420 million tons of carbon emissions emitted by a new planned coal mineover its lifetime.”
