(1/8) A few thoughts on the current debate about the #EUTaxonomy on sustainable energy finance, especially the classification of #gaspower and #nuclear.
(2/8) #Nuclear power has a very peculiar risk profile. It certainly is climate-friendly, with small life-cycle CO2 emissions (like wind and PV). But its waste problem and nuclear accident risks are unique. Ultimately a value judgement whether or not these eco-risks are acceptable

3. In the past 20 years, from 1999 to 2020, #UK #exports to #China increased twenty times.

According to a recent report by China-Britain Business Council, British exports to China supported 90,000 to 115,000 full-time jobs. @cbbc
