1. More Nuclear Power is NOT the Answer to the Climate Crisis

We believe that expanding the role of nuclear power may threaten the planet as surely as the global warming you seek to mitigate.

Fukushima alone demonstrates the risks of nuclear meltdowns even in a society based on science and advanced technology. The one hundreds plants in our country are terrorist targets.

There are no solutions in sight to nuclear waste disposal. The timelines for bringing new nuclear plants online exceed the UN's call for rapid decarbonization. The estimated costs are staggering.

2. Consult the People

It is a fact, successive governments have made major decisions which affect the people of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, yet they fail to consult them. In some circumstances, such as going to war in Iraq and Afghanistan this has cost lives and heartbreak. In other circumstances, such as Europe and the Lisbon Treaty, political leaders have promised a referendum, only to withdraw their offer.

The National Liberal Party believes in direct democracy along similar lines to those currently used in Switzerland. We call for this to be introduced into law enabling the people to be consulted before we enter into conflicts which do not necessarily concern this country, as well as other major decisions of national importance.

Switzerland has proved this can work. Therefore we believe it is time we followed the successful Swiss example, and allow the people of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland to be consulted via referendum as part of the democratic process of government.

3. Stop the inquiry of a Nuclear Waste Facility in Wawa

Overflowing with rich wildlife, fresh scenic landscapes, and friendly residents, our town is a thing of beauty.

Despite the growing need for new sources of income, this town shouldn't surrender everything it represents in turn for something completely against what we strive for. Although economic recovery is needed in Wawa, a nuclear waste facility certainly should not be the answer.

We believe that no matter what economical impact this plan may contribute to our town, it is does not out way the risks involving storing these highly toxic materials.

We are a town known for its respect towards the environment, and by inquiring into nuclear waste, the municipal council is undermining our values.

4. All Nuclear Power Plants, Stop!

突破核災資訊封鎖與扭曲 人民重掌對生命負責自主權

核電威脅生命,不單是一代人的生命,也不單是殘暴地特別傷害胎兒與孩童,更影響遠遠近近的人與萬種生物的基因,病殘痛苦以至最終的滅種由是而起。

輻射對生命的危害絕不是專家所說的輕微,更完全不能與照X光或CT
檢查相比——核電廠平常「合法排放」的輻射,與意外發生時洩漏的輻射,長久地、不停地、進入體內反覆地、並會集中地留在某些器官中,造成傷害及基因變異。

核電科技57年來都不能處理核廢料問題,只是將廢料不斷堆積在廠房內,令危險性以千百倍遞增;部份堆埋在原住民生活地區(如澳洲、台灣的情況),極盡種族滅絕之不義;還有部份用來再濃縮為鈈燃料棒,供製造核武之用,及供核電廠重新使用。鈈是全球最毒的物質。

人類完全不需要核電,那是核軍事-工業集團與政權操控下的大生意。在美、英、法、俄、日本、中國及第三世界情況都是如此。

我們要向生命負責,要阻止這些死亡力量,香港人、中國人要與全世界國家的反核力量連結,突破消息封鎖,不再聽從偽專家為其主子散播的天方大話。我們要起來保護自己、保護生命、喝停所有核電廠的運作與興建,永遠不要核電、核武﹗

基於此,我們有五項向日本及各核電買賣國政府、及不負責任的國際機構(如世衛)作出的要求;也對計劃到2030年共有240台核反應堆(其中32台在廣東)的中國政府,及投資在一些廣東核電廠的香港企業「中電」提出抗議與要求。

5. Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide!!!!

You should be concerned about DHMO! The CDC will not protect us from then who will? We do not understand why CDC will not ban DHMO. It may be lethal to humans in high quantities.

We must petition the dangers such as death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, and prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.

This chemical is used in everyday use, and even day care centers for the purpose of sanitation but should it? It is also used in highly dangers places such as in nuclear power plants. Should young children and people use it if nuclear power plants use it?

6. Support the Construction of a New Reactor at North Anna

The populations of the Northern Virginia and Richmond areas are continuously increasing. As a result, by the year 2017, there will be an approximately 4,000 MWe gap between the electricity that North Anna can supply and what is demanded by the consumers.

Therefore, it is necessary to construct an additional reactor at the North Anna site to supply this ever increasing demand.

7. Stop Nuclear power in Australia

Requires larger capital cost because of emergency, containment, radioactive wastes and storage systems. Requires resolution of the long-term high level waste storage issue in most countries. Potential nuclear proliferation issue.

Nuclear explosions produce radiation which make people sick and even kill them.

8. No Nuclear Power in Australia!

Now that the world is heating up due to Global Warming, the Australian government has to turn to a new source of energy, as coal is a major player in the Greenhouse Effect.

Instead of taking the obvious choice, like wind or solar power, the government has gone to nuclear power.

Nuclear power is dirty and dangerous. If something went wrong, the results would be catastrophic. On top of all that, NO scientist in the WORLD has discovered a safe way to get rid of nuclear waste.
Wind and solar power are more environmentally friendly, and more effective.

9. Close Indian Point Now

I demand that the Indian Point Nuclear
Power Plant be immediately
decommissioned.

The N.R.C. has admitted that the concrete containment buildings housing the nuclear reactors at Indian Point were not designed to withstand attacks by aircraft such as the type that terrorists used to destroy the World Trade Center.

Independent auditors have shown proof
that Indian Point has failed to prevent
intrusion by terrorists in mock terror
exercises. The Nuclear Control Institute and other experts on nuclear safety have warned that an attack on Indian Point could breach either of the two reactors or the fuel storage pool, causing lethal contamination of everything within 50 miles while impacting 8% of the U.S. population.

Indian Point cannot be sufficiently
protected to guarantee the safety of so
many residents within the fallout area.
There is no excuse for placing so many
lives in danger by the continued operation of this plant and it facilities in a time of war and into the future.
