This site starts from the premise that the manufacture and use of both nuclear power and nuclear weapons is dangerous, polluting and exorbitantly expensive. These industries are therefore socially, environmentally and economically unjustifiable.
Though the received wisdom that nuclear weapons and nuclear power are inseparable is disputed here, we note that there is a clear link in that 30+ nuclear power ‘facilities’ in China, France, India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States are producing weapons grade ‘highly enriched’ uranium.
(First response from Jonathon Porritt: “Thanks for the link to the new site about nuclear weapons and nuclear power – it’s amazing to me that some people continue to think that there really is some impermeable barrier between the two! Very leaky Chinese walls is rather more like it – in more than one sense!”)
Information which was previously shared only with a large mailing list – the ‘converted’ – will now also be placed on this website.
