Greenpeace Statement on today’s hearing at the House Committee on Appropriations on the House Bill to revive the BNPP
Greenpeace Southeast Asia Campaigns Manager for the Philippines Beau Baconguis said:
The ongoing debate on the House bill mandating the revival of the mothballed Bataan Nuclear Power Plant which continue to drag on in the House Committee on Appropriations just goes to show that Mark Cojuangco’s sordid nuclear proposal is clearly unsound and should not have been considered in the first place. Every single study conducted on the BNPP has concluded that this nuclear facility is unsafe to operate. There is no judicious reason why Congress should continue to hear this pointless proposal.
