Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a multi-billion dollar power generation company, is planning to build a nuclear waste dump (a Deep Geological Repository or DGR) 1 km from the shores of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.

This video presents Agenda Plus: Opposing OPG’s Nuclear Waste Plan.

  • Beverly Fernandez of the Stop the Great Lakes Nuclear Dump discusses developments in the debate raging over Ontario Power Generation’s plan to bury nuclear waste 680 metres below the ground near Kincardine, Ontario.

Some of this nuclear waste remains toxic and lethal for over 100,000 years.

“Scientists cannot guarantee  that this Nuclear Waste Dump will not leak.

The Great Lakes provide safe clean drinking water for 40 million people in two countries, as well as providing recreation, fishing, supporting agriculture, plant and aquatic life. Why would we bury radioactive nuclear waste beside this precious resource?

Ontario Power Generation, the applicant, states  this underground dump “is not likely to result  in any significant residual adverse effects to  human health or the environment, including  Lake Huron and the Great Lakes.” Is “not likely” good enough?

Ontario Power Generation did not consider ANY  other sites for this nuclear waste dump except right beside the Great Lakes. Is this responsible?

OPG claims it has done its homework, yet  the Joint Review Panel’s own consultant, Dr. Duinker, concluded that OPG’s analysis  was “not credible, not defensible, not clear, not reliable, inappropriate.”

An underground nuclear waste dump in limestone is unproven and unprecedented.”

In the following letter, the Avaaz team is asking for our help to:

  • please sign the petition in the letter below to urge Premier Wynne to cancel the project and
  • share it with everyone you know – when 50,000 sign the Avaaz team will take our message directly to the Premier.

Dear friends,

Ontario wants to spend a fortune burying tonnes of nuclear waste next to 40 million people’s drinking water — but the new Premier has the power to stop it and a massive outcry can pressure her into killing the plan and protecting our water. Click now to sign and share with everyone!

 

SIGN THE PETITION

Ontario has tonnes of nuclear waste but nowhere to put it. Now they want to spend a fortune burying the problem next to 40 million people’s drinking water — but we can still protect our Great Lakes.

The decision to dump heaps of long-lasting radioactive waste right next to Lake Huron is being rammed forward with the help of a few well-lobbied politicians and huge corporate pay-offs but we can still speak up. The Ontario government owns the mega corporation that wants to park this toxic garbage next to our water supply and Premier Wynne is politically vulnerable so a huge outcry could get her to kill the project. Let’s stop the radioactive dump by creating a wave of support for clean water and responsible nuclear policies.

Ontario’s nuclear corporation wants to truck its waste through our communities and dump it next to our drinking water. Let’s stop this disaster before it happens! Click now to tell Premier Wynne to cancel the project and share widely — when 50,000 sign we’ll take our message directly to the Premier:

Germany tried to bury its nuclear waste in a similar type of dump site and now it’s leaking radioactive water. Yet Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a government owned corporation, wants to spend $1 billion dumping tonnes of toxic waste just over a kilometre away from the world’s largest network of freshwater lakes.

The following video presents “US Proposes Establishing World’s Largest Marine Sanctuary.”

  • “President Barack Obama recently proposed that the US establish the world’s largest marine sanctuary.
  • An area in the Pacific Ocean that lies between American Samoa and Hawaii has been selected, but specific boundaries have not been decided upon.
  • The proposed area would reportedly be adjacent to several U.S. controlled territories, and include 200 nautical miles of surrounding waters.
  • Under Obama’s plan that sanctuary would be expanded to include about three-quarters of million miles of ocean off limits to fishing, drilling and other activities that put the habitat in peril.
  • Before the expansion can be made official, the proposal must go through a period of review during which time the public can make comments.
  • Both the Department of Commerce and Department of the Interior will also conduct research into the plan to get a big picture of how closing the area to fishing will affect commercial activity.
  • At this time, about 3 percent of tuna legally caught by the US fishing industry comes from the central and western Pacific Ocean.”

These tropical coral reefs and associated marine ecosystems are also among the most vulnerable areas to the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification,” the White House said in a statement.”

Dear Friends,

In days, US President Obama could create the world’s largest marine sanctuary, but a powerful fishing lobby is trying to stop this ocean-saving plan. Let’s build a tidal wave of support before it’s too late and deliver it straight into the White House. Sign now to create an Ocean of Hope, and tell everyone!

SIGN THE PETITION

Right now, the US government is receiving public comments on whether or not to create the world’s largest Marine Protected Area in the Pacific Ocean. But President Obama is under enormous pressure from a powerful fishing lobby to water down the plan.

We can’t let that happen — majestic whales, turtles and fish stocks are all disappearing. Scientists say the best way to save our oceans is to protect large swaths from exploitation so that marine life can recover. Four years ago, we played a pivotal role persuading the UK government to create a massive marine sanctuary in the Indian Ocean, and the UK Foreign Ministry cited our campaign in its announcement. Now, if we all speak out, we can create a reserve the size of Mexico!

If we send Obama a tidal wave of global public support now, we will empower him to counter opposition and help save our oceans for generations to come. Sign the petition below and tell everyone — let’s deliver one million voices before the official consultation closes in days:

This video presents “Abbot Point Wetlands: Why risk this beautiful place for coal?”

  • Abbot Point is in Northeast Australia (right by the Great Barrier Reef).
  • Until the coal industry moved in, Abbot Point was just another stunning beach in far north Queensland. But the wetlands behind Abbot Point were always something special.
  • The traditional owners of Abbot Point have lived here for many thousands of years. But change is on its way.
  • Coal companies think Abbot Point would make a better shipping port than beach. Today, industrialisation is digging deep into this beautiful country.

Avaaz’s image: An urgent threat to the Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

However, the Reef — the largest living organism on earth and home to a quarter of all the species that live in the world’s oceans — has slowly been dying for years.

  • It’s lost half its coral in the past three decades and that rate is only accelerating as a result of climate change and Australia’s booming mining industry.

Now, Australia mining industry has a new plan to build the world’s largest coal mining complex, and then build a shipping lane to that port straight through the Great Barrier Reef!

In the following letter, the Avaaz team is asking for our help to

  • urge Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Environment Minister Mark Butler and potential investors in Abbot Point to protect the Great Barrier Reef by saying no to hugely damaging dredging and dumping, and opposing the Abbot Point port extension and other similar projects; and
  • please sign this urgent petition below and share it with everyone you know to stop the Great Barrier Reef wreck.
    • At the present time of this blog posting, 914,689 people have signed.
    • Help us get to 1,000,000.

Dear Avaazers,

The Great Barrier Reef is at risk of being dredged to make way for a mega coal project. But if one key investor walks away, the deal would be sunk and the world heritage site protected. We can convince them to pull out, or get PM Rudd to stop the plan, but we have to act now — sign this urgent petition to help save the Great Barrier Reef:

It would be hard to make this stuff up. Australia’s legendarily irresponsible mining industry has a new plan: while the planet faces catastrophic climate change, build the world’s largest coal mining complex, and then build a shipping lane to that port straight through the greatest ecological treasure we have – the Great Barrier Reef!

This is a terrible idea with devastating consequences, and the investor group Aurizon that’s backing it know it. They’re getting cold feet, and we might be able to push them over the edge, and kill the project. One of the main potential funders has even donated to climate activism!

Dear friends,

It’s the last place on Earth where endangered orangutans, tigers, rhinos and elephants roam free together. But mining companies and big agriculture want to rip the rainforest to shreds. If a million people call on Indonesia’s President to silence the chainsaws in the next three days, we can save this precious habitat. Sign now:

I live and work in the last place on Earth where endangered orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers still roam together — but it’ll be bulldozed to bits unless our President hears our call and steps in to save this unique habitat.

Right now in one of Indonesia’s most pristine and untouched forests, a local Governor wants to let mining and palm oil companies move in to decimate areas the size of a million football fields! And the national Forestry Ministry looks like it might let him unless the President steps in to reject this orangutan-killing plan.

We know the President wants to be seen as a keen conservationist, but we need to tell him his green reputation and possible future UN aspirations are on the line to ensure he does the right thing. We need to act fast — sign the urgent petition and tell everyone about this mortal threat to our majestic forest. If a million people sign in the next 3 days, I’ll ensure the President hears us:

This video presents “Frankenfish: Genetically engineered salmon”:

  • Genetically engineered seeds are not breaking news; however a biotech company called AquaBounty has been working on genetically engineered salmon
  • The fish will be a combination of Atlantic salmon and part Ocean Pout
  • Jeffrey M. Smith says that it is ridiculous to evaluate the safety of this food with no long term feeding studies and sample sizes as large as six; and refuses to consume this genetically engineered salmon, if approved

In the following letter, the Avaaz team is asking for our help to:

  • Urge Margaret A. Hamburg, Commissioner US Food and Drug Administration, to reject the approval of AquaBounty’s transgenic salmon for human consumption because:
    • AquaBounty’s transgenic salmon is the world’s first genetically modified meat: a mutant salmon that could wipe out wild salmon populations and threaten human health

    • Genetically modified  fish pose a real threat to natural marine species

      • The new fake salmon grows twice as fast as real salmon

      • If a few of them or their eggs reached the wild, these super-salmon could decimate entire wild salmon populations

      • FDA’s approval of transgenic salmon could open the floodgates for genetically modified animals worldwide

    • The long-term effects of consuming transgenic meat have not been sufficiently researched

      • This new fake salmon is about to be declared safe for us to eat, based on studies paid for by the company that created the GMO (genetically modified organism) creature

      • Once the GMO salmon hits supermarkets, we won’t be able to tell apart Frankenfish and real salmon, so there won’t be a way to avoid it!

  • Urgently build an avalanche of global support to help a growing coalition of consumers, environmentalists and fishermen win the support of the government to reject this fishy deal because:
    • the US is legally required to consider public opinion before deciding

    • a public consultation is happening right now and we have a real chance to keep mutant fish off the menu

  • Please click on the “Sign The Petition” banner in the Avaaz letter below to say NO to Frankenfish and share widely
    • At the present time of this blog posting,  621,900 people have signed the petition

    • when we reach 1 million, the Avaaz team will officially submit our call  to the public consultation

Dear friends,

The US is about to treat the world to the first genetically modified meat: a mutant salmon that could wipe out wild salmon populations and threaten human health. Unless we stop it, this Frankenfish could open the floodgates for biotech meat around the world. Click below to build 1 million voices to stop it:

The US is about to treat the world to the first genetically modified meat: a mutant salmon that could wipe out wild salmon populations and threaten human health — but we can stop it now before our plates are filled with suspicious Frankenfish.

The new fake salmon grows twice as fast as the real one, and not even scientists know its long-term health effects. Yet it’s about to be declared safe for us to eat, based on studies paid for by the company that created the GMO creature! Luckily, the US is legally required to consider public opinion before deciding. A growing coalition of consumers, environmentalists, and fishermen is calling on the government to trash this fishy deal. Let’s urgently build an avalanche of global support to help them win.

This video presents ” Shell Blamed for ‘Cover-Up’ of Nigeria Oil Spills”:

  • According to a leading human rights group, the Shell Corporation has been covering up catastrophic oil spills in the Niger Delta by blaming them on sabotage by local people
  • Amnesty International says those living there are suffering a “human rights tragedy” inflicted by decades of environmental damage caused in large part by Royal Dutch Shell
  • Independent auditors estimate that up to 13 million barrels of oil have been spilled in the Delta, an amount equivalent to an Exxon Valdez disaster every year for 40 years
  • Nigeria’s own watchdog reports that there are 2,000 current spills, the majority of them from Shell operations

    • At the present time of this blog posting,  713,661 have signed the petition

      • Please help us get to a million signers by signing the petition below in the following Avaaz letter:

Dear friends,

In days, Nigeria’s Parliament could approve a $5 billion fine against giant oil polluter Shell and set in motion a law that would hold oil companies to account for the first time ever. The President endorses the penalty, but Big Oil are lobbying MPs like crazy to vote against reform. Our voices can drown them out to win justice for Nigeria’s people. Join the urgent call now!

In days, Nigeria’s Parliament could approve a $5 billion fine against giant oil polluter Shell for a spill that devastated the lives of millions of people, and pass a law to hold all oil companies to account for polluting and plundering. This is a watershed moment, but unless we all speak out, oil giants will crush it.

Finally, Big Oil is having to pay for the wasteland and violence that they’ve created. President Jonathan supports the Shell fine, and progressive Senators are pushing for strong regulations, but oil companies are slick, and without huge international support MPs could buckle under the pressure.

Politicians are deciding their positions right now — sign the urgent petition for the Nigerian Parliament to fine Shell and support the bill, and then forward this to everyone — when we hit a million signers we’ll bring our unprecedented global call to the steps of Nigeria’s Parliament:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/make_shell_pay_rb/?bkyeWbb&v=19285

Experts say that every year Big Oil spills as much crude into the Niger Delta as an Exxon Valdez, but as it is Africa, it gets little media play. After a leak occurred at Shell’s Bonga oil facility last December, millions of gallons poured into the ocean and washed up on the densely populated coast — resulting in one of the largest African oil spills ever. The fine and bill on the table are a once in a lifetime chance to stand up to Big Oil.

This video presents ” China reduces solar power costs with large-scale manufacturing”:

  • Over the past decade, China has become the world’s leading manufacturer of solar energy technologies;
    • China’s solar manufacturers have helped drive down the cost of solar power around the world with their large-scale production facilities and solar panel exports
  • ClimateWorks traveled to China to get a sense of the scale of China’s solar manufacturing efforts and talk to some local experts about China’s goals for dramatically scaling up its domestic deployment of solar energy technologies

Please Save Solar Industry Worldwide: Stop Trade War & Tariffs on China!

In the following letter, the Avaaz team is asking for our help to:

  • Urge the EU Trade Commissioner and the US International Trade Commission (ITC) to hold urgent talks with China and develop policies that support jobs and innovation and speed up the clean energy revolution for the following reasons:
    • The crucial green energy revolution  is at risk:
      • Even though climate change is accelerating, clean energy is booming, producing nearly 20% of the world’s electricity!
    • While China, the EU, and the US all funnel billions in taxpayer subsidies into Big Coal and Oil to destroy our planet, China is also providing huge loans and subsidies to the solar industry:
    • And that’s exactly what other governments have failed to do
    • Chinese government has invested billions in solar industry, sending panel prices plummeting and making clean green tech almost as cheap as dirty fossil fuels
    • Some claim that domestic jobs are threatened by low cost Chinese panels, but the truth is the opposite:
      • Experts predict that tariffs could cost 60,000 jobs in the US alone
      • The vast majority of jobs in the solar sector outside of China are in installing and servicing panels, not manufacturing them, so cheaper panels now means more work, and more jobs.

        • And less climate change
    • But the US and EU are about to drive solar prices back up by putting tariffs on China
    • Now China is threatening to retaliate
  • Please click on the “Sign The Petition” banner in the Avaaz  letter below to save the global solar industry:
    • The EU and US are deciding right now:
      • “We’re in a race against the clock to green our economies and prevent catastrophic climate change, and Chinese success in green tech could be the perfect catalyst for the rest of the world to scale up the technology and sustainably bring down prices.”
    • At the present time of this blog posting, 476,966 have signed:
      • Please help us get to 500,000 signers by signing the petition in the Avaaz”s letter below and forward it to everyone:
        • If we build a 500,000 strong petition, Avaaz will make a formal submission to the US International Trade Commission and EU trade Commissioner calling for talks not tariffs:

Dear friends,

There’s new hope on climate change, with 20% of the world’s electricity being produced by renewables! China’s aggressively invested billions in solar energy, making it almost as cheap as fossil fuels. But, instead of meeting that investment, the EU and US may be about to slap tariffs on Chinese solar panels, preventing a green revolution. Sign the petition to stop a trade war, and hold talks to save solar:

Climate change is accelerating, but there’s a massive ray of hope: clean energy is booming, producing nearly 20% of the world’s electricity! Incredibly, the US and EU are threatening to stifle this breakthrough — but together we can stop them.

In the last decade the Chinese government has invested billions in solar, sending panel prices plummeting and making clean green tech almost as cheap as dirty fossil fuels. But the US and EU, who give billions in taxpayer subsidies to Big Oil and Coal, are about to drive solar prices back up by putting tariffs on China, and now China is threatening to retaliate. A full on trade war is brewing that could kill the crucial green energy revolution.

The EU and US are deciding right now. Most of the solar industry is against tariffs — and now massive public support could tip the balance. Sign the urgent petition to save solar – if we build a 500,000 strong petition, Avaaz will make a formal submission to the US International Trade Commission and EU trade Commissioner calling for talks not tariffs:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/a_ray_of_hope_on_climate/?bkyeWbb&v=17606

China has a poor human rights and environmental record, and its strategy of flooding the global market with subsidised goods could be found to be too aggressive. But the right response to this is not tariffs, it is investment. While China, the EU, and the US all funnel billions into Big Coal and Oil to destroy our planet, China is also providing huge loans and subsidies to the solar industry. And that’s exactly what other governments have failed to do.

Following the bankruptcy of a handful of US and EU solar manufacturers, some lobbyists are pushing politicians to blame China, instead of their own insufficient and inappropriate subsidies. Some claim that domestic jobs are threatened by low cost Chinese panels, but the truth is the opposite — experts predict that tariffs could cost 60,000 jobs in the US alone. The vast majority of jobs in the solar sector outside of China are in installing and servicing panels, not manufacturing them, so cheaper panels now means more work, and more jobs. And less climate change.

The EU trade Commissioner initiated the investigation into tariffs today and the US ITC proceedings are about to kick off. Written statements to both must be submitted in days to be considered. We’re in a race against the clock to green our economies and prevent catastrophic climate change, and Chinese success in green tech could be the perfect catalyst for the rest of the world to scale up the technology and sustainably bring down prices. Let’s make sure the EU and the US don’t kill our ray of hope:

http://www.avaaz.org/en/a_ray_of_hope_on_climate/?bkyeWbb&v=17606

In the world most of us everywhere want, our governments would incentivise clean energy, and not hand out our tax money to polluters making record profits from dirtying our land, air and water and destroying our planet. Today, we can save solar, and take one step closer to that future.

With hope,
