ABSTRACT
This article reports on the disappointment of the Chemical Industries Association (CIA) in Great Britain at a report by an independent advisory body of the British government on sustainable development, which found nuclear power was not the answer to addressing climate change or securing energy supply, as of March 2006. The Sustainable Development Commission reported that even if the existing nuclear capacity of the country were doubled, carbon dioxide emissions reduction would not be large enough to offset the risks associated with waste, cost and security.
