Report: No More Nuclear Disasters
Challenging Nuclear Power in the States
Capitalizing on rising energy prices, growing concern about global warming, and a favorable political climate, the nuclear industry is working to achieve a “nuclear renaissance.” After 30 years without a single new order for a nuclear power plant in the U.S., several companies are now in the early stages of proposing new nuclear power plants. Meanwhile, federal officials have begun routinely approving requests to run existing nuclear plants harder and longer than ever. A “nuclear renaissance” would be a bad deal for American consumers, the environment, public safety and national security.
