What compelled you to join the CASEnergy Coalition? There is a lack of public knowledge on the benefits of nuclear energy. Our climate is changing. Global warming is directly related to our production of CO2, and nuclear energy is one of the few reliable sources of energy that is carbon clean. The advantages far outweigh any disadvantages, and nuclear energy is far cheaper than many believe.

Voices of Support

As America leads the global transition to a low-carbon economy, the continued development of new and advanced nuclear technologies along with support for currently operating nuclear power plants is an important component of our clean energy strategy.
