No to nuclear

Nuclear Energy does not help us to combat climate change at all

This is the main message that C.A.N.E. - the Coalition Against Nuclear Energy - wants to put across and make people aware of. There is a lot of documentation supporting this statement and some of the main points are the following:

  • We do not have time for nuclear power to make a difference
  • Nuclear power costs too much
  • Nuclear power doesn't create the amount of jobs that could eleviate poverty that using renewable energy like solar and wind power would create
  • Nuclear power is not safe, nor is it simple
