PETITIONS

There are several anti-nuclear petitions online that you can support.
Here are some of them:

Moorside, new nuclear plant should not be funded by Government.

To UK Government and Parliament

Cumbria already has the intolerable burden of Sellafield. A major accident involving the liquid high level waste would have catastrophic consequences. Any dangerous development near to Sellafield would make a major accident more likely. Private developers cannot afford to underwrite this risk.
"Replacing the output of the shelved new nuclear plants at Wylfa, Moorside and Oldbury with renewables would be 13-33% cheaper, including the costs of balancing variable output, according to quickfire analysis from the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit.....

Note that reductions in per-capita electricity generation have saved the UK the equivalent of four Hinkley Cs of demand since 2005 https://www.carbonbrief.org/qa-can-the-uk-meet-its-climate-goals-without-the-wylfa-nuclear-plant

 
STOP SIZEWELL C:
HUGE NEW NUCLEAR DEVELOPMENT IN SUFFOLK A.O.N.B.

Together Against Sizewell C demands the Government halt the Sizewell C planning process immediately, review the UK's energy policy and remove the nuclear component which has been shown by report after report to be superfluous to UK climate change, cost and electricity generating targets. Nuclear is too expensive, a security risk and leaves a legacy of radioactive waste.

SIZEWELL C CANNOT BE ALLOWED AND WE CAN STOP IT IF WE ARE UNITED IN OUR OPPOSITION. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION.
It will be delivered by hand to Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy

Halt the Dumping of Hinkley Mud in the Severn Estuary
To: Carwyn Jones AM, first minister of Wales and Government

Your ministers have failed to meet your duties on safeguarding our marine environment (UK Marine Act) and to comply with the international agreements (OSPAR, London anti-dumping Convention) on assessment of effects upon human health and marine flora and fauna. The mud was insufficiently tested at depth, with only 5 compared with the minimum 7 under OSPAR for the 300 000 tonnes. The Senedd Petitions Committee was right to ask for further testing and NRW wrong to refuse it, as the few deeper samples show up to 3 times more uranium and radium.

UK Government: Don't Risk Billions On Nuclear Power
Hitachi is demanding government funding to save its struggling nuclear power project. If something goes wrong, we could lose billions of pounds of public money.
We don’t need new nuclear plants. Offshore windfarms are already cheaper and quicker to build - and fast-improving energy storage tech means we can have clean, reliable power instead.
We’re asking Theresa May to drop this nuclear deal and back renewables instead. Will you add your voice?

Don't Nuke The Climate
Don't Nuke the Climate!
Seven international clean energy organizations launched a major campaign in support of a nuclear-free, carbon-free energy system and to prevent nuclear power from being considered as a climate solution when the world's governments meet at the COP 21 conference in Paris in December 2015.

07 Dec 11: Hinkley Point nuclear protesters take fight to Prime Minister David Cameron: Campaigners yesterday stepped up their battle against a new nuclear power station in Somerset by handing a major petition to 10 Downing Street. More >>>

To the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change

Hinkley Point C Nuclear power station

We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the plan by EdF to construct a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset. Instead, a government-backed programme of energy saving and clean renewable energy would combat climate change and avoid the risks of a catastrophic accident, dangers to health and the storage of highly radioactive waste at Hinkley for 160 years.

THIS PETITION IS NOW CLOSED.

We reached over 13,000 signatures. Many thanks to everyone for your support
