With a heavy anti-nuclear movement that began during the early 1970’s, the public shifted their attention to renewables, believing that they alone would help us meet our decarbonization goal, deeming nuclear to be a dead technology. 

But things have changed. Germany’s Energiewende has been exposed as a failure and the United States is saving nuclear plants. Biologists and environmentalists have began speaking out about the harmful impacts of industrial wind and solar on both our environment and endangered species. It is becoming increasingly apparent that if we are to decarbonize, we CANNOT do it without nuclear. 

Despite preliminary successes and this change in momentum, nuclear continues to be in trouble. The industry is at risk of losing around the world. The situation is urgent.

Now is the time to have COURAGE and stand up for nuclear. We need you.

We are a coalition of passionate and concerned scientists, advocates, parents, and students around the world that knows that nuclear energy is the only solution to widespread poverty and climate change.
