Phase Out Nuclear Energy FacilitiesNuclear power plants are extremely expensive to build and operate, and nuclear waste management is costly, including billions of dollars in subsidies.

Nuclear energy power generation has been proven to be harmful to the environment and hazardous to human health. The recent Fukushima nuclear disaster has demonstrated the dangers of nuclear power generation.

    There is so much wrong with both my countries, that sometimes it is hard to prioritize the fights, but, I believe the GMO fight is at the top for me, Fracking is at the top also, along with Senior abuse, animal abuse, Chemtrails, Weather Manipulation, and the almighty GREED.of humans that just cannot seem to get enough, while our fellow man is in diar straits in the North American continent.

    The Green party needs to rethink its approach to nuclear power. It is probably the only available technology now that can make a real impact on climate change.

    Please take the time to educate yourself about the real impacts of being against it. No one can realistically see what is happening in Germany now (nuclear phase out) and think that it is being beneficial to the planet. A change in policy could have the benefit of separating your party from the NDP in a real sense and showing that you are not blinded by past thinking.

      You might have a point John, but one meltdown outweighs the drawbacks of fossil fuels, and advances in renewable energies are happening all the time. Personally I’d rather have all humanity regress to our largely agrarian driven economies of a hundred years ago than live in a toxic world where cancer and birth deformities is the norm.
      I believe Fukushima is still leaking away, and there really isn’t anything more toxic by comparison. Direct exposure to these substances is quick miserable death; exposure to airborne particles slow miserable death- it’s just not worth it.
      To quote Einstein, “it’s a hell of a way to boil water”.

        Take a look at Thorium. it’s got many benefits. If meltdowns concern you, then take a look at the liquid LFTR model in molten salt. That’s the one most people want to achieve, but there are other options.

  • Jo. Unrau

    Nuclear power is too dangerous & could mean the end to our whole country. Solar power is what we need. Much more research into economical solar power is what we need, & more people using it.

    • Daniel

      if you’re going to go that direction, wind power is the more economical option, as wind power is much more cost effective, much cheaper to maintain, produces lower emissions through miscellaneous manufacturing and installation procedures, etc. solar just isn’t practical for large scale deployment.
