I strongly believe the Sizewell C project will cause damage to the local and general environment both short term and long term and consume resources better used elsewhere. For the 12 years of its construction it will only contribute to increasing the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Further it would be 20years before its CO2 debt is 'repaid'. During this time and in the longer term rising sea levels and accelerating coastal erosion will render the site difficult, if not impossible to defend for its useful working life and the 300 years needed to return it to habitable status. Resources will be more quickly and effectively used increasing and establishing renewable power generation . It will damage a well established and nationally valued AONB and overload the resources available to the local human and wildlife. Health and Policing will be overloaded. And in the present circumstance of Covid19 the 'importation' across the country of personnel from Hinckley Somerset must be considered unwise.
