Build Clean Nuclear Plants to Fight Global Warming

Nuclear power has proven itself safer than any energy technology. Misinformation about the Fukushima event where no one was killed and the UN says no one will suffer radiation injury is spread by fossil fuel-funded sources like the Sierra Club campaign against nuclear power to destroy competition of their secret funders.

The US Navy has 60 years of 100% safety for 100k crew. U.S. nuclear power plants operate safely and waste has never harmed one person. Notice how descriptions of nuclear dangers always begin with, "This could happen..." Where are the injuries? Where are the dead bodies? Truly dangerous activities always have them. Fossil fuel has those sick and dead bodies. Nuclear power has none.

Why is this important?

To get California and the nation on emission-free, proven, clean power and off dirty, earth-killing fossil fuel. Global warming is worsening. We must lead the world away from fossil fuel energy.

Reasons for signing

  • I strongly support nuclear power construction and research
  • Closing Diablo Canyon will set back California's GHG-emissions reductions by at least a decade, but probably by much more.
  • We need to have a grown-up conversation about the crisis that is climate change, and set aside our preconceived notions that nuclear energy is somehow bad for us. It's not, and we need a lot of it. Please join us -- the climate, the oceans and humanity depend on us doing a better job here.
