Slide show on nuclear power and uranium mining

London Mining Network believes that the use of uranium produces a radioactive legacy which threatens the wellbeing of thousands of generations to come.

Concern about climate change has led some commentators to support nuclear energy as a lower-carbon alternative to coal, oil and gas in generating electricity. But the nuclear option poses dangers both in waste disposal and in the impacts of uranium mining on the communities – many of them Indigenous communities – living around, downstream, or downwind of the mines.
