Environmentalists for Nuclear

Post by GradPhys » Thu Apr 19, 2012 12:53 pm

People in this forum may be interested in the organization "Environmentalists for Nuclear"

Take a look here: http://www.ecolo.org/ Here is their basic concept:

The point of view of EFN
EFN considers that environmental opposition to nuclear energy is a major mistake. If well managed, nuclear energy is a very clean energy, does not reject polluting gases in the atmosphere, uses very few construction materials (per kWh) compared to solar and wind energy, produces very little waste (almost totally confined), is very safe, and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect (no carbon dioxyde). True environmentalists are therefore in favor of nuclear energy.

EFN works at informing the public of the environmental benefits of nuclear energy, the cleanest energy resource massively available. More efficient uses of energy, renewable energies, and self sustainable lifestyles should be promoted, as well as existing clean nuclear technology and future types of nuclear reactors.


It may be a good idea to join the organization, to promote environmentally friendly Nuclear Power.

I don't know how much sense that would make. Extreme organizations, on either side of the issue, are doing more harm than good.
