U.K. Nuclear Update

Just in from Scotland:

Unions are heading a drive for new nuclear power stations to be built in Scotland.

A resolution calling for the nuclear option to be part of continuing energy review was passed by the Scottish Labour Party yesterday.

The engineering union Amicus and the National Union of Mineworkers believe atom plants must be part of a balanced energy policy including clean coal technology and renewable sources like wind and biomass.
More from The Brothers Judd. And a number of antis are already sounding the alarm. Click here and here for more details.

Good for Scotland, they need those qualified jobs.

But what is this UK obsession with building nuke plants in Scotland?

The power is mainly consumed in England, why not build the plants there?

If the Scots don't want nuclear plants in their backyard it's their loss.

And building nuclear plants where the local community doesn't want you is a real good way of making nuclear power less popular.
