Say no to nuclear power plants...

Here's a link to a petition to sign against an increase in nuclear power in the UK. I have read a couple of articles with interest recently, on in the gardian abou the propossed 11 sites for new nuclear power plants , this article about Spain's wind power farms in La Mancha having a record breaking output recently and how they already supply 12% of the country's power and in today's Independent, this article about how the UK could be about to miss out on an green energy boom by not investing in wind power. Why is this government so scared of wind power yet prepared to saddle us all with the short-term power solution of nuclear whose legacy will be the huge financial/ecological burden of 11 extra nuclear plants to decomission for future generations? Generations that will already be paying well into their 70's for the economic chaos of today.
