Humanity is currently too selfish and immature to use nuclear energy wisely or safely.
Radioactivity damages DNA. Damaged DNA allows infertility, cancer and birth defects.
How do you feel about your kids being unable to ever have children of their own, or giving birth to sick or malformed babies which may not survive?
There is no way, and will be no way in the foreseeable future, to safely, permanently store or dispose of radioactive waste.
There is no way to prevent radioactive material from getting loose into the air, soil, water and underground water of this one dynamic planet.
Three of the most powerful ways for us to create a healthy loving future are: to prioritise love and be it in all you do, say and think; to vote out and not support those who promote nuclear energy and weapons; and to put your money and support with the companies who walk their talk in developing and supplying wind, solar and other emerging eco-friendly energy technologies.
In my former household of two adults, we calculated a tiny $3.50 per person per week each extra on our electricity bill to buy 100 per cent renewable energy from the sun. We could easily offset that small extra cost with a few simple behavioural changes (like dropping unhealthy habits!).
And for a clean, healthy future, that’s a fantastic ROI!
