Flood risk:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/mar/07/uk-nuclear-risk-flooding

Quote:
As many as 12 of Britain's 19 civil nuclear sites are at risk of flooding and coastal erosion because of climate change, according to an unpublished government analysis obtained by the Guardian.

Nine of the sites have been assessed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) as being vulnerable now, while others are in danger from rising sea levels and storms in the future.

The sites include all of the eight proposed for new nuclear power stations around the coast, as well as numerous radioactive waste stores, operating reactors and defunct nuclear facilities. Two of the sites for the new stations Sizewell in Suffolk and Hartlepool in County Durham, where there are also operating reactors are said to have a current high risk of flooding. Closed and running reactors at Dungeness, Kent, are also classed as currently at high risk.

Another of the sites at risk is Hinkley Point in Somerset, where the first of the new nuclear stations is planned and where there are reactors in operation and being decommissioned.

According to Defra, Hinkley Point already has a low risk of flooding, and by the 2080s will face a high risk of both flooding and erosion.

Other new reactor sites that face some risk now and high risk by the 2080s are Oldbury in Gloucestershire and Bradwell, Essex.

The huge old nuclear complex at Sellafield, Cumbria, is said to face a medium risk of flooding now and later.

The analysis was conducted by officials from Defra's floods and coastal erosion team as part of a major investigation into the impact of climate change on the UK. But when the results were published in January only summary numbers for the 2080s were mentioned and no individual sites were named.

Defra has now, however, released its full analysis in response to a request under freedom of information legislation. As a result, the department's assessments of the risks for individual sites can be disclosed for the first time.

Meaning that they hung about with the important details until after the great Cammo/Sarko nuclear handshake.

They really do deserve to go. Now. Before they do any more damage.

Yes agree, incandescent lamps do indeed need to go, now before thay do any more damage !
The continued use of such lamps increases electricity demand thereby increasing calls for more nuclear plants.
