Kingsnorth coal-fired power station shelved

Keith Parkins | 08.10.2009 11:44 | Climate Chaos | Energy Crisis

Kingsnorth coal-fired power station will not go ahead for at least three years, recession cited as reason.

Whatever spin may be put on it, 'shelved due to the recession', this power station has been shelved because of the real threat of direct action and the resultant escalating costs. It is not the only power station to be shelved.

Next stop Climate Swoop, Ratcliffe-on-Soar, 17-18 October 2009.

And do not forget airport expansion.
