Cumbria Trust make some excellent points about the continuing sham CONsultation meetings regarding Geological Dump plans for heat generating radioactive wastes. We would add that While this continues to be “a plan” the industry and government are colluding to push along the very real plan to build new nuclear plants.

Whether it is insane and dangerous is of no consequence as long as “the plan” and the CONsultations continue, this is a prerequisite for new build.

Opposing geological dumping anywhere is key to stopping the nuclear juggernaught. The first step to looking after the waste as safely as possible is to stop making more waste!
