Fukushima - the nuclear emergency that won't go away

Posted Fri, 26 Oct 2012 14:54:27 GMT by Martin Leggett

Long absent from the front pages, Fukushima is a nuclear disaster that's far from over. With yesterday's reports of increased radioactivity in fish, and space running low for storing contaminated cooling waters, it seems the disaster is only on pause. All it will take is another earthquake for the play button to be hit again.

England has over 16,000 Anglican churches plus another 20,000 from other demominations. The roofs of these churches provide excellent locations for solar panels and the feed-in tariff previously made viable the heavy costs involved in installation. The reduction in the tariff has led to many abandoned projects. With 'green' targets to meet, was this a wise move on the part of the Government?
