The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Nuclear lobby positioning itself as “green”

Beyond Nuclear 20 Nov 09 Climate change and its impacts are now undeniable. Leaders from around the world will have to reach a new climate agreement during the December 2009 Copenhagen Summit. Urgent measures must be taken to achieve a massive reduction in our greenhouse gas emissions.

Under the current Kyoto Protocol, nuclear energy is rightly excluded from the possible solutions available to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Yet the nuclear industry, in collaboration with certain countries, is pushing for this dangerous and polluting technology to be included in the next climate agreement as a “clean” technology.

The nuclear industry would then be able to take advantage of significant public investments at the expense of real solutions! Such a disingenuous strategy would mean losing the fight against climate change and promoting the global expansion of the nuclear industry, with its associated risks. Please sign the petition today asking decision-makers at Copenhagen to reject nuclear energy as a “clean” technology and to oppose its inclusion in the mechanisms to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. Please sign today.
