Slow Suicide of Life on Earth. The Climate Emergency. 25 of the Areas for Technical/Legal Solutions
The knowledge, expertise and materials have developed to enable the end of the climate emergency. Sadly, there is not the political/corporate will, which resists tackling the emergency.
Economic growth, profit and consumer demand take priority over life on the Earth.
We are engaged in slow suicide of life on Earth.
Nuclear Power stations belong to the problem, not the solution. They do not present a viable alternative to fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas.
Nuclear Power stations are not cost effective, nor safe from natural disasters or a breakdown. A nuclear power station can cost triple the price in €billions to build from the original estimate.
Wave/tidal energy, solar farms and wind turbines produce cost effective benefits, easier construction and safe.
Three nuclear power plants involved in the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011 cost around $100 billion to clean up contaminated radioactive waste following the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 in Japan.
Germany has ordered the decommissioning off all nuclear power plants in the country by 2022. Only a handful remain in 2019.
