Fly Tuscia is against the use of nuclear energy. Very little has been made known to the citizens about the real impact of this technology, is latent as well as information on issues concerning the supply of uranium and disposal of waste.
It 's enough to remember such as nuclear power – says Viterbo Claudio Margottini, World-renowned geologist and professor at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia – after the peak of the plants built in the 80s, Today sees limited growth, concentrated mainly in non-OECD countries (World Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development), in other words in countries such as Russia, China, Korea, and so on.; the fraction of global electricity comes from nuclear plants has increased from 18% of 1993 to the 14% of 2008, because of failure to construct new facilities; the amount of energy produced from nuclear, despite the growth in consumption, decreased by 2% from 2005 to date, with an expected reduction of 1% per year until 2015 due to aging facilities and reduced availability of uranium; the operation of existing power plants would seem to require already 65.000 tons / year, of approximately 30% higher than that coming from the mining (40.000 tons / year), generating a strong appeal to the civil deposits. There is more, the unsolved problem of radioactive waste, the cost of the single system that exceeds the 3 billion for 1600 MWe (Mod. Franco-German AREVA), and issues related to decommissioning after exercise, have deterred most of the industrialized countries to the Nuclear Energy Option.
Same time there is an incredible development of renewable energies, especially the solar photovoltaic, of 50 megawatts of installed capacity 2007 has more than six-fold in 2008, reaching 342 megawatts in a year. The number of photovoltaic systems has been a growth of 318%, passing of 7.625 a 31.875 always in a year. And you also see increases in sales: the sale of photovoltaic systems has generated 2008 about 1.150 million, compared to 2007 increased 150%, with the sales volume attributable to approximately 52% processing.
So - says Giovanni Bartoletti - In the face of these data Tuscia Fly reiterates its firm opposition to the reintroduction project in Italy and the Nuclear Montalto di Castro in particular, calling instead for a more immediate recourse to renewable energies, to solar, the geothermal, biomass to a short chain, wind energy when not impacting, energy conservation in buildings and a new impetus to research in the field.
