Loji Nuklear : Khalid Ibrahim kata Tidak, Guan Eng kata kaji semula.

Loji tenaga nuklear pertama negara dijangka memulakan operasi pada 2021, kata Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui.

Chin berkata: "Ia merupakan projek yang agak mahal tetapi kita tidak mempunyai pilihan. Daripada membina lebih banyak loji kuasa arang batu atau gas yang akan menelan belanja lebih lagi di masa depan."

Chin berkata negara memerlukan 20 peratus rizab tenaga, dan menambah bahawa penggunaan tenaga semasa ialah 14,000 megawatt dan mempunyai kapasiti 23,000 megawatt.

SHAH ALAM: Selangor tidak menyokong dan tidak akan membenarkan pembinaan loji janakuasa nuklear di negeri ini kerana berpendapat wujud sumber tenaga lain seperti tenaga solar yang boleh dibangunkan, kata Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Beliau berkata, Selangor juga bersedia mengurangkan penggunaan tenaga daripada segi lampu dan mengkaji teknologi baru yang menggunakan tenaga paling minimum daripada bergantung kepada loju janakuasa nuklear seperti yang dicadangkan.

"Saya rasa kita tidak perlu membuat lanjutan usaha untuk mempertingkatkan pengeluaran tenaga melalui loji janakuasa nuklear ini," katanya pada sidang akhbar selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat mingguan Exco di sini hari ini.

Isu pembinaan loji janakuasa nuklear ini serius dan perlu dibincangkan di Parlimen, kata Abdul Khalid, yang juga Ahli Parlimen Bandar Tun Razak, sebagai mengulas pengumuman kerajaan yang memberi lampu hijau kepada Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air untuk meneruskan rancangan bagi membina sebuah loji janakuasa nuklear negara pertama yang dijangka beroperasi menjelang tahun 2021.

"Kita telah mempunyai satu loji janakuasa termahal yang dibina iaitu Empangan Bakun... saya tidak melihat keperluan untuk membina loji janakuasa nuklear sebagai alternatif kepadanya," kata Menteri Besar Selangor itu. - BERNAMA



Ini pula kenyataan Lim Guan Eng.

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Petaling Jaya On 5.5.2010.

DAP Urges A Rethink On Building A Nuclear Power Plant Not Only For Safety And Environmental Concerns But Also Doubts Over Its Economic Necessity When Malaysia Enjoys A High Energy Reserve Margin Of 40%

DAP urges a rethink on the government’s decision to build a nuclear power plant not only for safety and environmental concerns but also doubts over its economic necessity when Malaysia enjoys a high energy reserve margin of 40%. Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui announced that the first nuclear power plant has been approved by the Economic Council to begin operations in 2021.

Peter Chin said a nuclear plant was needed to meet the country's increasing demand for energy due to industrialisation and to ensure energy security. Chin said the country must have 20% power reserves. However Malaysia’s current reserve margin is double that at 40%, with the current power usage at 14,000 megawatt with a capacity of 23,000 megawatt.

Further the proposed RM 15 billion Bakun Dam producing 2400MW and RM 5 billion Murun Dam producing 900MW, both in Sarawak, will more than meet any increased demand. Clearly Malaysia has more energy than it needs. Without any economic grounds or energy security justification, why then does Malaysia need a nuclear power plant.

Malaysians are waiting to be convinced of the economic rationale of a nuclear power plant. Further Malaysians wonder what assurances can be given in relation to safety and environment following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant accident in Ukraine that claimed 56 lives and resulted in 4,000 cancer deaths.

Unless these environmental and safety concerns are addressed, there is also no economic logic and necessity for building a nuclear power plant in 2021 in a yet to be identified location in Malaysia. - dari e-mail aku
