Standing Up for Nuclear
Our ability to avoid climate disaster depends crucially on our ability to replace those disastrous fossil fuels by non-carbon emitting energy sources. Scientists agree: we cannot do it without nuclear. So much depends on public understanding of this issue.
Pro-nuclear activists are planning two more Stand Up for Nuclear events in France: in Lyon on 25 September (place Carnot), and in Paris on 9 October (place du Panthéon).

Save the Last Six!
In 2011 Germany had 17 nuclear reactors, supplying 1/4 of the country’s electricity. Today, 6 remain, all scheduled to be shut down by the end of 2022. (By contrast, coal-fired plants will operate until 2038).
Climate activists say that the nuclear plants provide safe, dependable electricity and save 70 million tons of CO2 a year. They plan regular demonstrations in front of the remaining plants, hoping to persuade policy makers to keep them running.
