In the introduction to her talk guest speaker Linda Pentz Gunter said “To put a nuclear plant (power station) on a beach is some sort of level of insanity” referring to sea level rise due to the climate crisis. Linda was one of a stellar cast of speakers at the Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) special forum public meeting held in Saxmundham, Suffolk on Saturday 14th March 2020.

At probably one of the last meetings to go ahead before the recommendations for ‘social distancing’ because of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) the following presentations were made:

Linda Pentz Gunter, Beyond Nuclear International: Nuclear power and systemic harm to animals and nature – the international picture
Simon Barnes, environmentalist: Sizewell C and its impact on local wildlife, a personal view
Ben McFarland, Head of Conservation, Suffolk Wildlife Trust: Sizewell C – threats to protected species and habitats
Rachel Fulcher, Co-ordinator of Friends of the Earth Suffolk: Nature, health and well-being – potential impacts of Sizewell C (also see video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2p6q_…)
Pete Wilkinson, Chair of Together Against Sizewell C (TASC), in association with Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group on Sizewell C (TEAGS): What are the other non-environmental risks in developing Sizewell C?

Professor Andrew Blowers, Chair of Blackwater Against New Nuclear Group (BANNG): Sizewell C and Bradwell B and the likely effects of climate change
