Inspired by a candle-lit dinner (not in the romantic sense) this article focuses on South Africa's nuclear energy aspirations and the possible implications of the precautionary principle. It will consist of two parts; the first will focus on the precautionary principle's status in international law and the second on whether, in the light of the principle and other environmental considerations, South Africa's renewed nuclear energy aspirations are justified. In essence the principle precludes a state from undertaking an activity which could have an adverse effect on the environment under certain circumstances.
