Nuclear power – good for biodiversity?

Greenpeace UK chief scientist Dr Doug Parr said: “If you look at nuclear and renewables only through the lens of land use, you get a very distorted picture of the pros and cons of both technologies. Once the unsolved issue of radioactive waste, the threat of nuclear proliferation, as well as the up-front costs and construction times, are put into the equation, nuclear energy starts looking like a far less attractive option than renewables.”
