Ed Davey, Secretary Of State for Energy and Climate Change: Stop all subsidies for nuclear power

      Hove, United Kingdom

Subsidies for nuclear power would be illegal under EU law. Propping up an expensive and dangerous industry diverts resources from renewable energy.

To:
John Hayes, Minister of State for Energy
Ed Davey, Secretary Of State for Energy and Climate Change
Stop all subsidies for nuclear power

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Put renewables and energy efficiency first. Subsidies for nuclear fission, the long term cost of dealing with nuclear waste and the continuation of a centralised model for energy supply is surely not economically sensible or democratic in a free society?

      Power is surely going to define which societies rise or fall in the coming decades. The decommissioning costs of nuclear far far outweigh the short-term benefits it can provide. And I can't even begin to talk about safety issues. If you invest in renewables (and I don't include nuclear in this terminology), then we could even have an energy industry within the UK. BUt you seem intent on farming out the investment (and therefore longterm profit) to France and China. I just don't understand your logic. You baffle me.

      Because Nuclear Power is a lie that is destroying life on earth. It is dirty, dangerous, expensive and unnecessary.
