Any plans the U.K. had for building new nuclear plants appear to be in trouble, as a standoff over a guaranteed electricity price shows no sign of ending. In a setback for plans to replace aging coal-burning and nuclear plants, the disagreement between the U.K. government and Electricite de France likely will further delay a decision to build the much-needed plants until at least the summer.

    The last nuclear facility the UK decommissioned had an 80 year oversight planned for it.

     

    I can't imagine residents of the UK are in any way concerned about the lack of new nuclear.
