Environmentalists For Nuclear Energy in South Africa (EFN-South Africa) is an independent environmental, non-profit organization which aims at :
information to the public on energy and the
- promoting the benefits of nuclear energy for a cleaner world
- uniting people in favor of clean nuclear energy
History of EFN
started growing in 1996 around Bruno
(author of 8 books on healthy living, and environmentalism) after the
publication of his book "Environmentalists
For Nuclear Energy"
and his participation in numerous TV and radio debates on this
South Africa started in 2011 around John Walmsley.
EFN promotes nuclear energy for a better and cleaner planet in a calm and rational manner.
EFN considers that environmental opposition to nuclear energy is the greatest misunderstanding and mistake of the century.
If well managed, nuclear energy is a very clean energy, does not reject polluting gases in the atmosphere, uses very few construction materials (per kWh) compared to solar & wind energy, produces very little waste (almost totally confined), and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect (no carbon dioxyde).
For EFN, true environmentalists should therefore be in favor of nuclear energy. EFN works at informing the public of the environmental benefits of nuclear energy, the cleanest energy resource massively available.
Our belief is that more efficient uses of energy, and self sustainable lifestyles should be promoted on the long term, and that in the meantime renewable energies and nuclear energy should totally replace the use of oil, coal and gas, wherever possible.
EFN unites people throughout the world who are concerned about the future of our planet and want to keep it clean and protect nature, thanks to the use of nuclear energy and renewable energies in replacement of oil, gas and coal.
Since EFN was created, many of the greatest environmental leaders have joined our organization or share our views such as, for example, Pr. James Lovelock (author of the Gaia theory), Patrick Moore in North America (co-founder of Greenpeace international in 1971 in Vancouver, Honorary Chairman of EFN-Canada). Others include : Stewart Brand (author of the Whole Earth Catalogue), late Bishop Hugh Montefiore (founder and former director of Friends Of the Earth until he joined EFN) and Stephen Tindale (former executive director of Greenpeace U.K. from 2000-2005) who protested against nuclear power for 20 years, but changed his view in 2009 to support clean nuclear energy & has founded the group Climate Answers. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) who was hostile to nuclear power until 2005, is now neutral to it. The environmental group Center for Environment, Commerce & Energy (CECE) supports nuclear power in the US.
EFN currently gathers more than 10.000 members and supporters, with 300 local correspondents in more than 60 countries, on five continents.

Fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) the dominant energy today, are being rapidly exhausted, and are the cause of wide scale pollution of our environment, while nuclear and renewable energies are much cleaner : they have absolutely no global effect, produce only very small amounts of waste that are easy to manage, don't affect the planet's climate, and these energy sources (renewable energies and clean nuclear energy), if well managed, are sustainable in the very long term.
Together we can build a better world
WITH CLEAN NUCLEAR ENERGY !
