Our safe energy future is renewable not radioactive

E-signature

TAKE ACTION 

WA is at a crossroads. This election we are faced with an important decision, one with implications that will last much longer than any politician’s promise.

Right now WA has no uranium mines, but the state government is subsidizing uranium exploration across the state, and one project, Toro Energy’s proposed Wiluna uranium mine already has some preliminary approvals in place.

The political candidates that we elect to form Government in March 2013 will decide whether the State Government will give final approvals for the Toro uranium mine and other uranium projects under development.

By supporting candidates who support a nuclear-free future, we can all make a difference.

Keeping Western Australia’s uranium in the ground is the only way to be sure that our outback country is not contaminated by radioactive mine tailings, our uranium does not end up in nuclear weapons, our workers are not exposed to health risks, and our highways and ports don’t become pathways for transporting toxic materials through our communities.

Take action now and tell your political candidates that WA’s future is renewable not radioactive.

Your voice can make the difference.

    Uranium is the way of the future dont fight against it, it is the cleanest source of power for its scale, for example 1 ton of uranium produces more power than 100, 000 tons of coal. The threat of nuclear explosions are less lickely than being struck by lightning yet people like you get unbelivibly paronoid.

      If only it were as simple as that, but you are ignoring the generation of nuclear waste, the proliferation of nuclear weapons. You are ignoring all the radioactive legacies sites, the enormous cost of management of mine waste, the even more enormous cost of decommissioning nuclear reactors and the infinite expense of managing radioactive waste. The industry is a failure, there is an obsession with it by those who are still very impressed that people managed to split the atom and the amazing technology that it is – but some people are too arrogant to see that it has actually failed, time and time again. It has also failed with public, and the public’s expectations of safety. The fact is we don’t need nuclear power. We do need to get out of coal, but we must not exacerbate another myriad of problems by moving out of coal – we should look to renewable technology.
