The Build Back Better agenda is supposed to be a game-changer to transition the country to renewable energy and off of fossil fuels by 2035. Yet the Build Back Better Act includes $30 billion of infrastructure spending on subsidies for aging, uneconomical nuclear power plants. This would be a costly, counterproductive, job-killing mistake. Speak up and demand that progressive leaders in Washington D.C. take action towards a just transition to a 100% renewable energy future - carbon-free and nuclear-free.
The false promises of nuclear power would only enrich corrupt corporations while leaving frontline communities behind. It has never been a more important time for you to tell your elected leaders to drop wasteful, corrupt nuclear bailouts in the Build Back Better Act. Tell them NO nuclear bailouts!
