This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

Just a few quick Nuclear Facts I found out while revising….

UK government has spent 13bn on Nuclear Research and Development
But will need to spend a further 70bn just to Clean up the Nuclear Waste

It has only spent 1bn on research in to Renewable Energy….

Also if you think Nuclear is the solution… think that no new nuclear power plants have been built in the West for 20 years
And any new one in the UK would take at least 10 years until it was up and running…
