Energy Working Group

Helmut Burkhart and Peter Shepherd 416-979-5000 ext 7246 416-535-6706

ISSUES — Ontario’s Energy Future: establishing a vision of Ontario as an energy system innovator, a shining example for the other regions of the globe, by phasing out the use of nuclear power, and replacing it with increased efficiency, conservation, solar heat, solar electricity, and other locally feasible alternatives, with natural gas co-generation to fill the gaps where necessary.

ACTIONS — To get a research grant from the Power Worker’s Union, or other sources, to study the technical, economic, and ecological feasibility of the proposed vision. While supporting the campaigns for nuclear phaseout and stopping nuclear exports, the Science for Peace Energy Working Group should emphasize positive action by promoting solar energy and other alternatives, through publications and the popular media.
