Don't Nuke the Climate!
A press release announcing the campaign is available here.
The groups are organizing a large and highly visible nuclear-free, carbon-free contingent to participate and demonstrate in events in Paris, much as we did at the People's Climate March in September 2014 in New York City.
At the COP 6 conference in The Hague in 2000, we successfully kept nuclear power out of global carbon trading mechanisms. In Paris in 2015, we will keep nuclear power out of all new climate initiatives. Nuclear power is not a solution to the climate crisis--in fact, its use is counterproductive and prevents deployment of the clean energy technologies that can and will power our world cleanly, safely and affordably.
As a first step, we will be presenting the petition below to world leaders in December.
Individuals: if you are signing on behalf of yourself and not an organization, please sign the petition below and then help us spead the word.

"We do not support construction of new nuclear reactors as a means of addressing the climate crisis. Available renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies are faster, cheaper, safer and cleaner strategies for reducing greenhouse emissions than nuclear power."
