Greenpeace response on fuel loading to Bushehr reactor


“It is not too late to turn back, Greenpeace calls for an immediate end to fuel loading at Bushehr.  The signals this sends throughout the middle east and beyond threatens to set in motion a chain reaction of nuclearisation in the region.
Regardless of whether Iran is developing nuclear weapons or not, nuclear programmes breed mistrust and constitute a major proliferation threat. The international community is failing to address this problem. A lasting solution to the spread of nuclear weapons should include an end to enrichment, the phase-out of nuclear power and complete disarmament by all nuclear weapon states.
Israel’s nuclear weapons program and Iranian nuclear development are playing a destabilizing regional role and constitute proliferation prompts. The solution is simple; negotiations on a Middle East Weapons of Mass Destruction Free Zone will increase trust and cooperation among countries and can make a profound contribution to parallel peace processes and efforts to ease tensions between regional powers.
A potential reactor failure at Bushehr, or of an attack thereon, could have a devastating impact on the Gulf environment and health of nearby communities in what is a crucial transit area for the current energy security of the global economy.
Iran has abundant clean and renewable energy resources. Investing in wind and solar instead of dirty, dangerous and expensive nuclear technology would significantly ease international concerns while increasing energy security for Iran.
Nuclear Energy is a deadly legacy of the 20th century and all countries, including Iran, should harness 21st century renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar and geothermal, to provide the energy we need without threatening our security.”
