UK Plays Ostrich

In the last few weeks the UK Government has announced that it has given the green light for 10 more nuclear stations to be built to help cover energy supply over the next 30 to 50 years and help lower its CO2 emissions. Or so they say.

Imagine if you had to pay £1 for every litre of water within the food chain according to how much… Continue
