The Choose Nuclear Free website has been established to provide accurate information and considered arguments on low-carbon electricity options for Australia − nuclear power and clean energy (i.e. energy efficiency and renewable energy).
Choose Nuclear Free also provides information on some important aspects of the uranium debate − the flawed nuclear safeguards system, and proposals to export Australian uranium to countries that have not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
- For information on the Fukushima nuclear disaster please see this Choose Nuclear Free overview and this information resources page.

Stop Australian uranium fuelling the next nuclear crisis
Australian uranium fuels the dirty and dangerous nuclear industry. On a day when everything works to plan this becomes high level radioactive waste – on a day when things go wrong it becomes fallout. On the anniversary of Chernobyl and in the shadow of Fukushima it is time to halt the uranium trade.
Please join us in sending a clear message to Prime Minister Julia Gillard to keep our uranium in the ground: our energy future is renewable not radioactive. Send your message here: http://www.pm.gov.au/contact-your-pm
