The above post very importantly explains the connection between the different stages of nuclear energy. Uranium mining will be destructive to Peru, the homeland of the Andean Bear and the UK’s beloved Paddington bear. The uranium, once mined, arrives in the UK only to cause problems there.

nuclear plants to make room for yet more nuclear waste.
As you know the original use for reprocessing was to separate the
Plutonium out of the spent fuel in order to make nuclear weapons. As
there is now enough plutonium…
