مستقبل ابنائنا يستحق قليلا من التفكير في ملف الطاقة ولا يحتمل نووي عشوائي
It is time that the issue of energy security and deficiency be addressed for Jordanians on a national scale. The Jordanian Energy Strategy issued in 2004 and revised in 2007 has to be revised again since the current lack of national energy resources cannot include the nuclear option that needs tens of years to become operational nor any mistakes or any not well studied decision.
We are definite that Jordan can secure its energy foreign dependence by national resources without being exposed to the dangers of nuclear energy. Therefore, we the undersigned, call for the following:
1- 1-Start legal investigation in the procedures of the Jordanian nuclear project and from its start.
2- 1- Insist on issuing an economic feasibility study, and the environmental impact assessment as per Jordanian Law, and to see if there is any proof that nuclear will solve the energy problem of Jordan.
3- 2- The immediate stopping of all procedures and process of the nuclear project until the above is investigated.
4- 3-The immediate resignation of the managers of the Jordanian Atomic Energy Commission for their mismanagement and misleading information about this project.
5- 4- The formation of a national committee of energy experts.
6- 5- The call for a national congress for studying energy security and strategy for the sake of receiving applicable solutions.
7- 6- The rejection of hasty not well studied increase in electricity tariff which will raise the burdens on Jordanian citizens.
