    Nuclear for life

Nuclear energy is the only energy source that can fully replace fossil fuels. Nuclear is also the safest, cleanest and least-cost source. Nuclear fuel is inexhaustible: we will never run out of uranium or thorium. Without the power of nuclear energy, the dual risk of global warming and resource depletion driven by unmovable economic reality continues to grow, potentially leading to the ultimate collapse of modern civilization. We must work to discard our unjustified, uninformed aversion to nuclear technology. Popular acceptance of nuclear technology is crucial, possible and beneficial.

What are arguments against the petition?

Kernenergie verontreinigt het milieu en het drinkwater, negeert mensenrechten en het recht op land, is gevaarlijk en giftig, heeft geen lage CO2-uitstoot, civiele kernenergie is onafscheidelijk van de militaire, duur voor de gezinnen, bedreigt onze democratische rechten, is slecht voor de gezondheid, en veel te langzaam. Volledige kernuitstap is de enige moreel juiste beslissing.
