NEW Petition to the UK Prime Minister: A Call to Stop Geological Nuclear Dump Plans.




Our new petition set up just last night has already received dozens of signatures - we have a long way to go before we get to the 10,000 signatures required for a debate in Parliament - but the UK does need to talk about the unwanted, scientifically unworkable and deeply dangerous Nuclear Dump Plan!


The text of the petition is :

To: Prime Minister of the UK

Stop "Delivery" of a Geological Nuclear Dump Under the Irish Sea or Anywhere Else.

Instead of bribing communities with £Millions to accept the plan to dump many decades worth of hot, high level nuclear wastes deep underground, we ask that you stop the production of ever more dangerous radioactive wastes, place a moratorium on the GDF “Delivery” plans and put all effort into containment ( not "disposal"), above ground where the waste can be monitored and repackaged as necessary. Continuing with an aggressive and scientifically inadequate push for “Delivery of a Geological Disposal Facility” merely in order to justify a new nuclear build agenda is the wrong thing to do.

Comments so far :


Nuclear waste is dangerous and we are leaving a toxic legacy for future generations by burying it underground. we should not be building any more nuclear facilities but investing more in renewable energy, which does not leave this lethal waste.

Andrea King

It is so very dangerous to put nuclear waste underground. Please stop this mad plan.

Samagita Moisha

Nuclear power was always a risky and foolish idea. Nothing has changed. We should be investing in green energy and in wasting less power. Nuclear waste is a time bomb.

Lawrence Werner Freiesleben

Until nuclear waste can be made safe it's production should cease. If politicians want to bury it they should do it in their own constituencies. We don't want it in Cumbria

Brian Woodward

Stop the further production & importation of nuclear waste, & insist on above ground containment where it can be monitored, & further safety measures implemented more easily.

Caroline Spencer-Palmer

Follow your own mantra, FOLLOW THE SCIENCE, not the money.

Kathleen J Conn

Stop dumping nuclear waste under the Irish Sea or anywhere else

Judith Law

Burying nuclear waste is not a safe way to dispose of it. The problem needs to be scientifically addressed. Until then the waste should be contained above ground and no more nuclear facilities built. Future generations deserve no less.

Joan West

Dear Boris,

Whilst I am pleased that we are reducing fossil fuels like coal and gas we need to monitor nuclear waste.

Tony Makin

Instead of bribing communities with £Millions to accept the plan to dump many decades worth of hot, high level nuclear wastes deep underground, we ask that you stop the production of ever more dangerous radioactive wastes, place a moratorium on the GDF “Delivery.

Barbara Roberts

This is adding insult to injury already caused by Britain dumping nuclear waste in the Irish Sea and polluting Ireland's coastline

David Penney

..Boris & Co & his PPS Trudy Harrison MP for Sellafield, KNOW THIS! Digging a hole will only slow safety & increase public cost increasing Climate Crisis. Nuclear has to find a way to get its hands on PUBLIC MONEY. It also has to silence its critics, that's why Boris is after the BBC & other PUBLIC institutions. Just like China! …

Neil Wilson

We do not want nuclear waste through Lancashire and Cumbria. It is dangerous and we do not want it. We need to think more creatively and thoughtfully.

Gillian Sheath

Please stop the hugely expensive and cost-ineffective nuclear industry. We have enough highly dangerous nuclear waste that we don't know what to do with already!

Liz Boothman

No to underground dump which will cause problems for future generations with leakages contaminating the Earth. Needs to be contained above ground so can be monitored. Not ‘out of sight out of mind’

Jan Thompson
