"CLEAN"? URANIUM FUEL - Sign and Share - Petition to Government- STOP THE LIE


Petition to UK Government :

Stop calling uranium mined fuels "clean energy"

Scrap the rebranding of nuclear as "clean." Even the very first step of the fuel cycle, the mining of Uranium is uniquely dirty and dangerous. The extraction of a finite resource which is far from "home grown."


The Department for Energy Security and Net Zero announced in July that "The UK’s nuclear renaissance begins with the launch of Great British Nuclear helping us deliver clean, reliable energy for generations to come." Future generations are being dangerously misled about the main product of nuclear power - nuclear waste. This will be just as dangerous to their lives as it is to ours.


"Using Greenhouse Gas Protocol methodology, the total NDA (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) group carbon footprint for 2019/20 is 1,046,950 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e)". We believe much of this is in directly looking after radioactive wastes at Sellafield.

"Clean" energy would not require procurement of £BILLIONS in just one year of granulated blast furnace slag, cement, chemicals, stainless steel, carbon steel, PVC containment items (£5 Million!!!), diesel, bulk and cylinder gas, fuel oil, Tyres (£500,00 !!!), UPS Batteries, Provision of vehicle spares and 3rd party maintenance (£5 million!!) and much more. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/sellafield-ltd-procurements-on-a-page-2022/sellafield-ltd-procurements-on-a-page-2022

Nuclear energy is clean energy. It emits no CO2 and uses less mining than any so called renewable solution.

Replying to

Even the industry itself admits to emitting CO2(e) with some emissions such as nitrous oxide being much more potent greenhouse gases than carbon - unlike wind/solar etc the FUEL HAS to be mined and the mines are enormous as you can see in the illustration of the Rossing Uranium mine above - the lie that this is "clean" is leading to disastrous new mining in areas previously free from uranium mining.
