There are a number of reasons for opposing Sizewell C. • China’s involvement is quite clearly now hugely controversial. • We are living through a now recognised climate crisis. The proposed plans for Sizewell C should as such strike us all as wholly misguided. The traffic congestion and pollution would be greatly increased and the devastation to the local environment catastrophic. It is well worthwhile you listening carefully to the views of those of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership and the RSPB for evidence of this imminent disaster. • The cost to the economy. £20 billion is now the estimated cost. I cannot believe that this money could not be spend more creatively for the greener and more economically viable good. This is the time to find a greener alternative. • 6,000 workers will be brought in rather than be given to those who now find themselves without income in the local area. • Radioactive waste will erode the coastline.
