Help Japan move to a 100% renewable energy future

*Action closed - **Thanks for all who participated!*

We all watched the Fukishima nuclear disater with great sorrow and concern, and are all well aware of the terrible consequences the radiation now has - on the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat.

The dramatic effects of this event demonstrate more than ever the need to move to renewable energies sources such as solar, wind and geothermal power.

In May 2011, former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan, stated the importance of including renewable energy in the country's Basic Energy Plan. However, newly elected Yoshihiko Noda's position on renewable vs. nuclear energy is unclear.

Sign our petition and join the WWF“100% Renewable Energy Campaign”!

WWF “100% Renewable Energy Campaign” calls for:
  • 100% renewable energy future
  • massive energy savings
  • no construction of new nuclear power plants and gradual closure of Japan’s 54 existing plants
The Japanese government intends to start reviewing the Basic Energy Plan in September. The first draft outline is likely to be presented in December 2011 and the final plan should be finalized in the next year.

WWF will submit the petition signatures to the Japenese government. We believe that the more signatures we get, the greater our chances are of including these elements in the revised Basic Energy Plan. 

Japan can't wait - sign the petition NOW!

In three months it will be too late. 

The consequences of Fukushima were horrific - many towns were destroyed and lives were lost.
