It’s been a very busy week for Greenpeace South East Asia. The energy ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations [ASEAN] met in Bangkok this week to discuss energy issues.

Unfortunately, nuclear power looms large in SE Asia’s energy future despite the region being rich in renewable energy resources. Greenpeace hit the streets of Bangkok with a visually stunning march and laid down the challenge to SE Asia’s governments to set binding renewable energy and energy efficiency targets, and explore CO2 emission reduction technologies.
