The Sizewell C Project
Received 16 September 2020
From John Squirer Kirkham
“I have followed the course f this project with interest and a general attitude of support. however, with the geopolitical changes that have occurred since it was decided upon by government, I must ask for a pause on further development at this site. IT IS BETTER TO CANCEL AND WASTE MONEY SPENT SO FAR, THAN PROVERBIALLY TO THROW GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD. WITH FRACKING NOW FEASIBLE IN THE UK, AND WITH PETROLEUM USAGE TECHNOLOGY ADVANCING RAPIDLY, HUNDREDS OF SMALL GENERATING UNITS POWERED BY CLEAN ENERGY EFFICIENT GAS TURBINE ENGINES EASILY ADAPTABLE TO PEAK AND TROUGH PERIODS OF DEMAND COULD BE BUILT AT MINIMAL COST AND WITH MINIMAL MAINTENANCE AND TERMINATION CONCERNS. PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND”
