Nuclear Energy is dangerous and expensive: Opt for Clean Energy Options

LESSONS FROM JAPAN 2011 campaign
[Photos] The Lessons From Japan 2011 campaign reached Sherwood Inter College, Indira Nagar, Lucknow where former Physics faculty of Loreto Convent Inter College and noted social activist Shobha Shukla advocated for promoting the use of indigenous energy resources such as coal, gas, hydro (small, micro dams or run of the river categories), solar, wind energy, biogas etc., and ensuring our future energy supplies from Iran and other countries in West and Central Asia. "Although the Campaign realize that fossil fuel based method of energy production is also harmful contributing to global warming and ideally like European Union and Japan we should aim for a low-carbon energy production system. India’s future energy policy should be low carbon and no nuclear" said Shobha Shukla, who also edits CNS.

Lessons From Japan 2011 campaign raises awareness about nuclear radiation hazards, and promotes dialogue and mobilizes public opinion among young people for non-nuclear clean energy options. 

Lessons From Japan campaign will culminate on Hiroshima Day, the 6th August 2011 with a seminar at IMA Bhawan (9-1pm) which will bring together country’s noted experts on nuclear-radiation health hazards, clean energy and nuclear disarmament.

Shri Sudeep Ghosh, Principal Sherwood Inter College was also present.

This campaign is organized under the aegis of Asha Parivar, National Alliance of People's Movements (NAPM), Citizens for Healthy Lucknow (CHL) initiative, and supported by Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences (RMLIMS), Indian Medical Association (IMA Lucknow), Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace (CNDP), Indian Doctors for Peace and Development (IDPD), and Jahangirabad Media Institute (JMI).

"Recent nuclear emergency in Japan leaves no doubt that this world needs to renounce nuclear power for military and civil/ energy purposes, as soon as possible, to put an end to any further catastrophe in the name of 'energy', 'security' or 'technology'. Nuclear power is clearly the most dangerous options for civil or military use. Countries that have been using nuclear power such as Germany and Japan have resolved to abandon nuclear energy by 2022. Germany converted its semi-finished nuclear energy plant into an amusement park! India needs to vote for clean energy" said Shobha Shukla.

Students of Sherwood Inter College are making poster exhibits to display on HIROSHIMA DAY, 6th August at IMA Bhawan (9-1 pm). All are invited.

  1. This is a ridiculous campaign. So called activists and followers haven't done their research to the core. Nuclear Energy not only offers us a low carbon source but also is a more sustainable option. Use of Renewable will increase in the future however, it can't replace Coal and gas fired thermal power plants for the coming few decades as the existing technology need more R&D. Moreover, these concerns about Nuclear tech. are hyped, as the existing plants are working absolutely fine in countries like France, UK and the US. Japanese incident was one off. Moreover, about mining issues pls check the facts of coal mining and oil exploration incidents. Also, most of Hydel projects have had the long lasting impact on the environment not only in India, but all across the world.

    I request the guys to atleast have good justification for the cause they support.
