The Evening Mail’s Pylon Poll has the option (unlike the actual Consultations) to vote No to Moorside…the poll is now standing at 70% saying No to Moorside …this is absolutely remarkable and very heartening given that the Friends of the Lake District and other groups along with the media are concentrating campaign efforts and media space only on the damaging impact of pylons rather than the obscenity of the main event!!
Radiation Free Lakeland are often called into question when we say that Sellafield ceased to produce electricity in 2003. People are astounded when we reply that all the pylons seen radiating out from Sellafield through towns and villages and across the landscape are not taking electricity away from Sellafield but are taking electricity TO the most dangerous nuclear site in the world. Sellafield absolutely relies on energy and will do so for years to come. Even the dodgy NuGen consultation referred to Sellafield as a “power plant,” well, it is, in that it uses up more electricity and gas than any other industry!
