Next May will be the 1st International Uranium Film Festival in Rio de Janeiro. We in Brazil have 2 nuclear power plants close to Rio de Janeiro, and the Government wants to built up to 50 more and a nuclear submarine. We have an uranium mine in Bahia that contaminates earth and water, and new mines are planned in the Northeaste and even in the Amazon region. The first international film festival about nuclear energy, uranium mining and radioactive risks is part of a movement to stop nuclear energy projects and uranium mining world-wide and to promote sustainability.
Any help is welcomed!

Best regards
Norbert G. Suchanek
General Director / Rio de Janeiro

“Nuclear stocks outside of Japan have held up fairly well throughout the crisis, but their future resilience depends heavily on the outcome of the crisis.”

That’s hardly a tide turning against nuclear energy. I agree with much of what say in the article – I just don’t see how it is nearly enough to support the claim in the title.

Also I’d be interested to know where “oil usage may be tapering off in the developed world” came from.
