The current energy activity has enormous impacts: acid rains, pollution of seas and soils, destruction of forests, radioactive waste, global climate change and the depletion of non-renewable resources.

Nuclear power poses a huge threat to human health and ecosystems. Its risks and impacts range from uranium mining, the manufacture of nuclear fuels, the operation of atomic plants and the incessant generation of highly radioactive waste.

Its link to the arms industry and its unresolved technical and economic problems necessitate a rapid abandonment of the nuclear option. Greenpeace proposes a shift towards renewable and clean energy.
