***UNCLEAR     NUCLEAR***

UNCLEAR WHAT TO DO WITH THE LONG-TERM WASTE

UNCLEAR WHO WILL COVER THE COSTS OF NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS, EVACUATION PLANNING, INSURANCE SHORT-FALLS, LONG-TERM WASTE STORAGE, DECOMISSIONING AND RELATED SECURITY ISSUES

UNCLEAR HOW MUCH TAX-MONEY GOES INTO SUBSIDISING NUCLEAR POWER

UNCLEAR WHY WE’RE SPENDING OUR TAX MONEY ON SUCH AN EXPENSIVE, DANGEROUS, NON-RENEWABLE TECHNOLOGY, WHEN THERE ARE TRIED, TESTED, SAFE, RENEWABLE TECHNOLOGIES – WHICH CAN BE UP AND RUNNING IN JUST A FEW YEARS!

  1. You mention that renewable energies could be up and running in just a few years. I think a point that a lot of people miss, is how long nuclear takes to come online. If we started investing in nuclear tomorrow, it would take 15 or more years before we get even 1 watt of power from nuclear. Imagine where renewables technology will be by that time!?

    The bottom line is that nuclear is a dangerous and expensive distraction from safe, sustainable energy!

  2. You are absolutely right Mike, that is a great point.
