Greenpeace against Arab world’s first nuclear power plant
AUGUST 4, 2020
The first nuclear energy plant in the United Arab Emirates goes online on the Gulf Coast east of Qatar. In a desert region full of oil, and well unlimited sunshine, Abu Dhabi still plans to go ahead and build a nuclear energy site despite the risks. Remember Japan? And Greenpeace, which runs an active unit in the Arab world and Middle East, called Greenpeace MENA, isn’t thrilled about the development. They weren’t thrilled about Jordan going nuclear as well, in 2011.
