The lack of further lifetime extensions of existing nuclear plants and new projects could result in an additional 4 billion tonnes of CO2 emissions.
The UK Government should consider investing up to GBP1 billion (USD1.3 billion) between 2021 and 2025 to boost the progress of innovation in the nuclear energy sector.
Global nuclear power has prevented an average of 1.84million air pollution-related deaths and 64 gigatonnes of CO2-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions that would have resulted from burning fossil fuels.
If we are to succeed in keeping the global temperature rise below two degrees, we need to quickly replace our fossil energy sources with solar, wind, water and nuclear power.
