Legalize Nuclear Power

Nuclear is illegal in these states and it shouldn’t be.

California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia

To review, nuclear energy is:

  • the largest source of carbon free electricity in the United States and Europe
  • the safest electricity source known to humankind
  • the source that requires the least amount of land and raw materials per unit of energy produced

State governments and utility companies have been making commitments to generate a large percent of their electricity from clean resources.

Unfortunately, because of laws that today are based more in fear than fact, it is illegal to build new nuclear power plants in our state. Even if power producers wanted to build new nuclear to help address climate change while minimizing environmental impacts, they couldn’t.

That’s where you come in.  Email, tweet, and call your legislator now to let them know where you stand.
