Blog - The science is in: Nuclear is out

Hi all – 

NIRS authored a blog for Beyond Nuclear this week about the climate policy implications of a new study on the impacts of nuclear power vs. renewable energy.

The science is in: Nuclear is out

We show how the study bolsters the positions taken in USCAN’s Vision for Equitable Climate Action and other justice- and equity-based climate platforms, in favor of a path to zero GHG emissions through 100% clean, renewable energy and phasing out nuclear power. 

We also make the case for the Green New Deal to follow the demands of equity, justice, and science to do the same.
