Zion Lights, formerly with Extinction Rebellion, and dozens of others sent an open letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, business secretary Alok Sharma, and chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak demanding that they proceed with planned nuclear builds, such as Sizewell C.
“We are writing as engineers, nuclear experts, scientists and concerned citizens to applaud your commitment to fighting climate change through energy policy, in particular the commitment to proceed with new nuclear construction at the same time as focusing innovation on an exciting new advanced reactor programme. Boris Johnson has said that ‘it is time for a nuclear renaissance and I believe passionately that nuclear must be part of our energy mix’. We agree.”
Zion Lights recently left Extinction Rebellion, where she was editor of The Hourglass newspaper. She is now director of Environmental Progress UK.
