Research from Bournemouth University has raised the possibility of future flooding at the Coulport, Faslane, Barrow-in-Furness and Devonport sites.
Responding to the report, British Pugwash Secretary Andrew Gibson said:
“Dr Brown’s paper demonstrates that a combination of natural and man-made defences mean flood risk is currently manageable at the Trident sites. However, we have every reason to believe sea levels will rise over the coming decades, increasing the risks. This has implications for long-term nuclear defence planning, in terms of adaption, regulation and cost.”https://britishpugwash.org/new-research-on-climate-change-impacts-on-nuclear-security/
