On the 7th April 2020, Boris Johnson announced that Nuclear Power - something that most people thought had died a quiet death - was going to be an important element in acheiving a secure electricity supply, meeting the country's energy needs in the future and acheiving climate change agreement CO2 levels.
While we believe that his target of 25% electricty generated by nuclear power was probably disingenous - just a quick and unaccountable way of magicing future carbon reduction targets out of thin air - we nevertheless feel it important that the British public are made aware of why such a policy is dangerous and unachievable and will hold back the development of renewable energy sources and storage.
That is why the STAND website is being revived and brought up to date, to make sure the British public are fully aware of the real facts behind nuclear power. However the majority of our earlier research is still valid and can be seen on our Archives page and makes fascinating - and at times mind boggling - reading.
