Recently a canister of worms was opened when some nuclear advocates qned the sense of deep geological repositories for disposing of high level nuclear waste. Look, this deserves to be delved into periodically. So once more into the repository my friends.
All the usual caveats apply. I’m a generalist – not a specialist. I do occasionally get to work with specialists though. I’m gonna drag in info from a range of sources for this #thread. These are my observations and reflections only. Disagreement and/or corrections are welcome 2/
First off let’s recap on the philosophy that drives nuclear waste disposal thinking. There are, I think, two main principles – intergenerational equity and the avoidance of harm. This touchstone IAEA publication describes the main objective as follows www-pub.iaea.org/MTCD/publicati… 3/ ImageImage

[Thread 🧵]

Défaite du climat, victoire des lobbies et du greenwashing : les eurodéputé·es ont choisi de considérer le gaz et le nucléaire comme des énergies vertes.

Le combat continue, devant les tribunaux.

#EUTaxonomy #StopFakeGreen #NotMyTaxonomy Image
C’est un échec historique du Parlement européen, à l’heure où il faudrait plus de sobriété, solidarité et un déploiement des énergies renouvelables.
Contre l’avis des scientifiques, des milliards d’euros vont être fléchés vers le gaz et le nucléaire, et donc détournés des énergies de paix - les énergies renouvelables associées à des économies d’énergies - qui permettent notre indépendance énergétique. greenpeace.fr/gaz-et-nucleai…

SCANDALE : en pleine urgence climatique, la droite au Parlement européen refuse d’exclure le gaz fossile de la taxonomie verte, alors qu’il s’agit d’une énergie très émettrice de gaz à effet de serre (mini-thread 1/7🧵) #EUTaxonomy
2/7 Cela veut dire des milliards pour l'expansion de cette industrie climaticide, alors que l’Agence internationale de l’énergie affirme qu’AUCUN nouveau projet fossile ne doit être toléré si l'on veut limiter la hausse des températures à 1,5°C d'ici la fin du siècle.
3/7 Cela veut vaut également soutien au régime belliqueux de V. Poutine, dont les filières gazières (et nucléaires) ont de nombreuses ramifications en Europe.

Quelques rappels #EUtaxonomy #NotMyTaxonomy :
1️⃣ Le GIEC identifie l'énergie nucléaire comme un levier de lutte contre le changement climatique.
2️⃣ L'Agence internationale de l'énergie indique que la lutte contre le changemt climatique sera beaucoup plus ardue sans le nucléaire.
Ce n'est donc pas le nucléaire qui est une énergie du passé, mais le discours antinucléaire qui est une idéologie d'autrefois, du temps où le réchauffement climatique n'intéressait personne et où le gaz était l'énergie peu polluante du futur.
3️⃣ En France, RTE indique que, sans nucléaire, la transition énergétique sera plus gourmande en investissement (un delta pouvant aller à 10 milliards d'euros par an), plus risquée (probabilité d'échec plus élevée et donc de dépendance prolongée aux fossiles)

Absolute shame on Greenpeace for using the Ukrainian flag this way, when Ukraine is FOR nuclear power.

Greenpeace’s activism is the reason countries like Germany are so dependent on Russian fossil fuels, thereby funding Putin’s war. 🗑
Get in the 🗑 @Greenpeace_Lux
The Ukrainian government’s official position is in FAVOUR of the inclusion of nuclear energy under the EU taxonomy.

Citation: this statement sent to MEPs by the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy.

❗️ This is huge: 🇺🇦 Ambassador in 🇩🇪 @MelnykAndrij turns to @Europarl_EN and voices strong concerns about the #EUTaxonomy proposal to label #gas as #green.

👉 He says it's clear #Russia will profit through the Act, and speaks of a "fatal signal" to 🇺🇦. A 🧵 1/6
@MelnykAndrij @Europarl_EN @LudekNie @Urmaspaet @ijabs @nicustefanuta @KGroselj @guyverhofstadt @LeszekMiller @Andi_Glueck @susanasolisp @hildevautmans .@MelnykAndrij has been one of #Germany's most vocal voices to push the 🇩🇪 government towards more help for #Ukraine.

In his letter, he thanks MEP @ViolavonCramon for supporting sanctions on 🇷🇺 #energy, given 🇷🇺 "considerable income through sale of #naturalgas" to the #EU. 2/6
Melnyk cites the #Russian energy minister who said that 🇷🇺 gas industry sees a "range of opportunities" through the #EUTaxonomy, while #LNG terminals are excluded. Its conditions thus "clearly favour #Russian #gas." @ijabs @CiolosDacian 3/6

@Bellona_EU @ClimateBonds @andytuit there's a lot of #greenwashing in the financial industry, this is why there's the need for a taxonomy, says @ph_lamberts starting his speech

#fossilgas #fossilfuels #climatecrisis #climatefinance #greenfinance #sustainablefinance @GreensEFA
@Bellona_EU @ClimateBonds @andytuit @ph_lamberts @GreensEFA we need to block the CDA-Climate Delegated Act because we want a label that is reliable, we need reliable market infos, if we include gas and nuclear we're distorting the market, says @ph_lamberts

[🧵A DEROULER] Nous avons voulu savoir : quels seraient les bénéfices que la Russie tirerait de la #EUtaxonomy si le gaz et le nucléaire y étaient considérés comme “verts” ? #StopFakeGreen
(Pour rappel, on vous expliquait en novembre dernier, ce qu’est la taxonomie verte européenne ici ⬇️)
Même avec des estimations prudentes, les résultats sont choquants

La 🇷🇺 pourrait gagner 4 milliards d'€ /an supplémentaires via de nouveaux projets gaziers qui pourraient être financés grâce à la taxonomie pour un total de 32 milliards d'euros d'ici 2030 greenpeace.fr/gaz-et-nucleai…

Une recherche de @greenpeacefr révèle comment les entreprises russes pourraient gagner des milliards grâce à l'#EUTaxonomy.

Ce greenwashing n'a aucun sens pour le climat & offrirait à Poutine de quoi continuer la guerre en Ukraine 👉 bit.ly/3LffvPn

Dans le cadre de notre campagne contre le #greenwashing de l'#EUTaxonomy, nous avons voulu savoir : quel serait le bénéfice pour la Russie si le gaz et le nucléaire obtenaient le label vert de l'UE ? Image
Même avec des estimations prudentes, les résultats sont sidérants. Les entreprises 🇷🇺 pourraient gagner 4 milliards d'€ de + par an grâce au gaz et bénéficier d'une partie des 500 milliards générés par l’expansion de la capacité nucléaire de l’UE. Image

As we remember the #Chornobyl nuclear disaster, we remain gravely concerned at the risk of another nuclear catastrophe due to the war in Ukraine, and we call on @vonderleyen and @McGuinnessEU to withdraw the #EUTaxonomy plan for nuclear & gas

When Russian forces shelled the #Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine in early March, it set off a blaze that was only just brought under control, and shocked the world

bbc.com/news/world-606…
Greenpeace condemned the Russian attack on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in the strongest possible terms at the time. We #StandWithUkraine and we abhor all nuclear threats

🧵 THREAD on #uranium investing 2022 (1/n):

To say that this 2022 has been eventful is an understatement. This is true for general investors, but perhaps it’s truer for uranium investors.
2. I’ll run through a quick and simplified list of events (inaccuracies possible) that have shaken, for good or bad, some more than others, the uranium sector in the less than 3 months of 2022.
3. The year began with a BANG! Nuclear inclusion in the #EUtaxonomy. Oh whoa, that’s gonna open the gates of institutional, ESG-focused capital, which will flood the sector and cause stock prices of uranium equities to skyrocket....

Anlässlich der heutigen Präsentation des absurden Taxonomie-Entwurfs ein friendly reminder warum Atomkraft NICHT die Lösung für die Klimakrise ist #EUTaxonomy - Thread 👇 1/9
Atomkraft ist LANGSAM. Vom Plan bis zur Baugenehmigung vergehen Jahrzehnte. Termine werden immer weiter nach hinten verschoben. Beispiel #Flamanville Frankreich - sollte 2008 ans Netz gehen, läuft immer noch nicht. Die #Klimakrise müssen wir aber JETZT bekämpfen 2/9
Selbst die EU-Kommission stolpert über ihre eigene Argumentation Atomkraft sei eine "Übergangslösungen": Gefördert soll alles werden, dass bis 2045 eine Baugenehmigung bekommt... obwohl wollten wir nicht schon 2050 klimaneutral sein? Das geht sich nicht aus. 3/9

(1/8) A few thoughts on the current debate about the #EUTaxonomy on sustainable energy finance, especially the classification of #gaspower and #nuclear.
(2/8) #Nuclear power has a very peculiar risk profile. It certainly is climate-friendly, with small life-cycle CO2 emissions (like wind and PV). But its waste problem and nuclear accident risks are unique. Ultimately a value judgement whether or not these eco-risks are acceptable
(3/8) The true risk about #nuclear for climate change mitigation: Its track record of delays and cost overruns. New nuclear power makes for a very risky and costly bet for reaching climate targets. Just look at #Olkiluoto, #Flamanville, #HinkleyPoint. #FalsePromise?

Breakthrough! Sweden says in @EUCouncil that conditions for #nuclear power should be safeguarded in the #EUtaxonomy. Full quote below👇
"A significant fraction of the Swedish parliament has stated that all fossil free energy solutions, including nuclear, play an important part in achieving climate targets.
And that Sweden, together with other member states, actively should work to safeguard the conditions and future of nuclear power within the taxonomy."

The greenwashing of gas, a fossil fuel, as a sustainable investment has been kicked to long grass⚠️

Why does this spell trouble?🚨It creates new political alliance:

🇫🇷 Gov batting for nuclear industry
+
🇩🇪Gov fighting for gas lobby

#EUTaxonomy THREAD👇
euractiv.com/section/energy…
Now gas advocates🇩🇪 and pro-nuclear🇫🇷 have the opportunity to join forces and classify their preferred energy source as sustainable🧐

Gas is a fossil fuel🚨

Labelling it a 'sustainable' investment will syphon funds meant to support the green transition and #EUGreenDeal
On TRANSPORT the EU wants to classify...

Dirty cargo ships🚢burning bunker fuel 😷
+
Fossil gas buses🚐🔥 as sustainable investments🚨

Holding back decarbonisation of European transport, our biggest source of GHG emissions
