Australia has a significant role and responsibility in the international nuclear debate.
Our energy future is not nuclear – it’s sun and wind powered. Uranium, coal, oil, and gas are the old world. Sun, wind and waves are the new world. Clean energy can scale to power our cities and it’s already happening.
We have consistently opposed uranium mining, highlighting its threats to our land, water, Indigenous cultures and local communities. For two decades successive governments have tried to impose radioactive waste on unwilling remote communities. Waste plans for Muckaty in the Northern Territory were shelved after sustained Aboriginal and community opposition. We stand with Aboriginal and rural communities who are concerned about plans to pollute their air, soil and water.
Decisions on handling radioactive waste last longer than this generation.
We facilitate a continuing public debate about the risks and responsibilities of our involvement in the global nuclear trade. We can address our energy needs, leaving uranium in the ground. We want responsible management of existing radioactive waste and an active transition away from producing more.
