Cracks is the graphite cores of the UK's advanced gas cooled reactors may cause their early shutdown.

As a percentage of total life the possible lifetime shortening is reasonably small. As a percentage of hoped for remaining life it could be catastrophic.

A question for all the reasoned proponents of nuclear energy.
Would *you* agree to have your children or grandchildren  grow up in Sellafield?

The UK Atomic Energy Authority's Dounreay nuclear facility on the northern coast of Scotland is to be decommissioned at an estimated cost [so far] of £4 billion.

The operation is due to last 60 years, but UKAEA spokesman Andy Munn, says low-level waste contamination will render some areas of the site out-of-bounds for the next 300 years.

Friends of the Earth make surprisingly measured comments.

Well...firstly it's a very nice bit of the country; not as nice as it is 10
miles inland, but nice enough :-)

It's downsides are that there is little employment in the area, and it
should never have had it's name changed from the much more beautiful
sounding (and descriptive for the area)Windscale.

But, if the employment options were more like they are in Leeds / Manchester
/ Sheffield then I would love to live there, and would have no problem
bringing my two kids up there either.

More to the point (and it's a mute argument because I suppose it's never
likely to happen) I would not move from where I am now if there were plans
to build a nuclear power station / recycler or whatever near here, as long
as they don't try to change the name of the village.

Cheers...Mike.
