From Polskie Radio:
Greenpeace has called for an end to plans to build a nuclear power station in Poland and has inaugurated a special project entitled the ‘Energetic Revolution.Back in December, Poland, which relies heavily on lignite and hard coal for electrical generation, announced it would build its first nuclear reactor by 2023.
Launched in the coastal city of Gdansk the initiative calls for more energy to come from organic sources in Poland. The ecologists are against the proposed construction of an atomic energy plant in Poland.
Spokesman of the Polish branch of Greenpeace Jacek Winiarski said that the nuclear plans is totally pointless and a “very dangerous investment.”
According to Greens Poland has great potential in wind farms and this should be made a priority.
Should the government continue to develop plans on the construction of an atomic plant Greenpeace will hold protests to block the investment, says the group.
Here's a message to our friends in Poland: Drop us a line about how young nuclear professionals in the U.S. are taking the fight to the anti-nukes. We can help.
