Environmental Activists Oppose Emirates Nuclear Energy Plan


In a desert region full of oil, and unlimited sunshine, Abu Dhabi still plans to go ahead and build a nuclear energy site despite the risks. Greenpeace, which runs an active unit in the Arab world and Middle East, called Greenpeace MENA, isn’t thrilled about the development. Greenpeace explains that this action will further deplete natural resources such as water, which is very scarce in the United Arab Emirates.
