From a Smash Dalton Flyer:
The Dalton Institute is a new research centre at Manchester Uni. It carries out research into decommissioning but also into new reactor technology.
WHAT THEY SAY
Dalton director Richard Clegg has worked in the nuclear industry for over twenty years:
1.“Nuclear power will play a significant role in addressing the needs of future energy production.”
2.“The Institute is establishing a new Reactor Technology Centre to support current and future UK nuclear generating plant activity.”
3.“Dalton will provide the nuclear industry with a rich source of highly-trained graduates.”
WHAT IT MEANS
The Dalton Institute cannot and will not provide independent research. Its links with industry (in terms of funding, staff and aims) are too strong. This has already influenced its decision: the world needs more nuclear energy.
The Dalton Institute will do one thing: join in the multi-million pound gamble with our environment dictated by gigantic corporations and the powerful pro-nuclear lobby.
