It’s a climate emergency! Drop your
old-fashioned and unscientific opposition to nuclear power, and join us in the fight against fossil fuels instead! 

 

DEAR GREENPEACE

My name is Ia. 


I’m an 18 year old school striker from Sweden. and I’m taking legal action to challenge Greenpeace over their opposition to climate-saving nuclear energy in Europe.

Why I’m taking legal action against Greenpeace: 

 

In 2022, the European Parliament voted to classify carbon-free nuclear energy as “sustainable” and to include it in an important list called the “Green Taxonomy'' for sustainable finance. This was a HUGE win for science and a MASSIVE bit of good news for me and my generation.

It all sounds a bit nerdy, but it couldn’t be more important. It meant that nuclear, (alongside other clean energy sources like wind and solar) could get the critical financial investment needed to help save our climate.

 

But in April 2023, I found out something unbelievable. Greenpeace, one of the most influential environmental groups in the world, said that it would sue the EU to try to get nuclear kicked off this crucial investment list.  

 

This felt like a punch in the stomach to me and my climate school striker comrades. 

 

Unlike some of the people that run Greenpeace, it’s my generation that will have to live with the consequences of climate change. In my experience young people tend to be open minded to all solutions, including nuclear. It’s an emergency after all! 

 

My generation trusts respected bodies like the IPCC who say that we can’t meet the Paris climate goals without nuclear energy. Put simply, we trust the science. Our real enemy isn’t the EU’s support for nuclear energy, it’s FOSSIL FUELS.

Climate foes

I love Greenpeace. I respect them. I’m inspired by them and I don’t want to see them become totally irrelevant. But sometimes you have to stand up to the people you love.

 

So, I've joined forces with the grassroots network WePlanet and with the help of a law firm called Houthoff in Amsterdam we’ve submitted papers to the EU Court of Justice asking to enter Greenpeace’s anti-climate court case as an “interested party”, but in defence of carbon free nuclear energy.


Amazingly, against all the odds, we have been accepted by Europe’s highest court as an official “intervenor” on the side of the commission and against Greenpeace! This means that over the coming year I will be in the centre of one of the biggest legal battles in Europe, submitting evidence and making arguments to defend nuclear power and defend our climate.


 
So this is where I need your help. Court cases are massively expens
ive and the pro-nuclear movement is small. So, if you believe in science and evidence, please donate today to fund our case!

We're in a worsening climate  crisis, opposition to nuclear is no longer morally or politically justifiable. Embrace nuclear and focus on getting rid of fossils instead.
