Greenpeace questions govt for pushing 'high risk' Kudankulam project 11.8.2016 DNA: Mumbai
With Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin jointly dedicating the first unit of the Kudankulam Nuclear power plant, Greenpeace India on Wednesday questioned the Centre for pushing the venture which places communities and environment at "high risk" of nuclear contamination. It said the venture is particularly "troubling" as India lacks preparedness to handle a nuclear emergency, and also it is at the odds with the Prime Minister's focus on Clean Growth. The green body said solar and wind energy are far safer renewable alternatives to nuclear or thermal power. "Safety aside, decentralised renewable energy provides a far better chance of protecting India's energy security as well as ensuring the fundamental right of energy access to over 200 million people," Greenpeace India campaigner Priya Pillai said. Over the long-term, she said it would be in India's best interests to prioritise optimal utilisation of its existing power capacity, cut down on transmission and distribution ...

UK PM May was unhappy with Chinese investment: Former colleague 30.7.2016 DNA: Opinion
Theresa May was unhappy with the "gung-ho" approach her predecessor took to Chinese investment in Britain, a former colleague said on Saturday, after the new British prime minister cast into doubt a high-profile Chinese-funded nuclear project. Britain had been due to sign off on Friday on a plan by France's EDF to build two new reactors at Hinkley Point, with financial backing from China General Nuclear (CGN), in a deal championed by David Cameron as a sign of Britain's openness to foreign investment. Instead, just hours before the signing ceremony was due to take place May's government announced it would review the project again, raising questions over Britain's approach to infrastructure deals, energy supply and foreign investment. "When we were in government Theresa May was quite clear she was unhappy about the rather gung-ho approach to Chinese investment that we had," Britain's former business secretary Vince Cable told BBC Radio. "As I recall, she raised objections to Hinkley at that time." Britain ...
