A wrong turn on climate change
Nuclear power is not the way forward
Protecting the climate is among the most pressing issues of our time. Many people are concerned about how we can reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and at the same time meet a growing demand for energy. The pro-nuclear lobby is taking advantage of this uncertainty, propagating nuclear power against climate change. Yet the supposed climate benefits of this high-risk technology have long been disproven – nuclear power is too weak, too slow, too expensive.
The expansion of renewable energies combined with energy savings, efficiency measures, and the use of storage technologies is the only way to quickly and permanently reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the energy sector. But this will only work if policymakers finally take their foot off the brake and accelerate the transformation of the energy sector. Nuclear power and fossil fuels are not a bridge towards the age of renewables. We must abandon them as quickly as possible if we want to safeguard our natural resources.
To promote nuclear power is to prevent climate protection – renewables are the way forward!
