Scientists and green group reject the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant reopening. National Chairman, Giovani Tapary, of Samahan ng Nagtataguyod ng Agham at Teknolohiya para sa sambayanan (AGHAM) said that the proponents of BNPP’S reopening should consider the safety, economic liability sustainability of the 620-megawatts facility. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) also cautioned the Philippines not to let commercial interests take precedence over safety issues when considering the revival of delayed nuclear plants.

Never having been used by the government for the past 20 years, the $ 1- B eyed fund of this project, which will come from pockets of ordinary Filipinos will be better spent on safe and cheap renewable energy. [via]
