Nuclear

The Greens want to see an end to nuclear weapons and nuclear power.  The 20,000 nuclear weapons that exist today are obsolete relics of the Cold War and can end our world in an afternoon. Like landmines and cluster weapons, they must be abolished, through a Nuclear Weapons Convention.

The whole nuclear fuel chain – from uranium mining to the unresolved problem of nuclear waste – presents unacceptable environmental and security risks and is phenomenally expensive. Rather than leaving future generations the burden of nuclear waste, we should be giving them truly safe, clean, timely and economic solutions to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.  The future is renewable, not radioactive.
