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% 民主行动党吁请政府检讨兴建核能发电厂的决定,这不只是基于安全与环境考量,也质疑我国是否有此经济需要,

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.

民主行动党吁请政府检讨兴建核能发电厂的决定,这不只是 基于安全与环境考量,也质疑我国是否有此经济需要,因为我国的能源储备量已经高达40%。能源、绿色工艺及水务 部长拿督斯里陈华贵宣布经济理事会已经批准我国首座核电发电厂在2021年启用。

陈华贵说,工业化导致我国能源供不应求,为了确保能源安全,我国必须兴建一座核电发电厂。他 说,我国必须拥有20%能源储备。可是,我国目前已拥有40% 能源储备量,现有能源消 耗量是14000兆瓦,产能则是23000兆瓦。

再说,建议中坐落在砂拉越造价150亿令吉,产能2400兆瓦的巴贡水坝,以及造 价50亿令吉,产能900兆瓦的Murun 水坝要应付日趋强大的需 求绰绰有余。很明显,马来西亚的能源供过于求。除非是出自经济或能源安全考量,否则马来西亚并不需要一座核能发电厂。

马来西亚人民等着政府给予一个让人信服的理由,说明政府凭什么经济考量,要兴建一座核电发电 厂。尤其在1986年乌克兰切尔诺贝利核电厂爆炸,夺走56条人命,4000人死于癌症之后,政府能 给予什么安全及环境保障,实在让人质疑。

除非环境及安全的问题获得解决,否则连地点都还没鉴定, 就要兴建核能发电厂,实在不合经济逻辑,也没必要。
