We must act now to stop nuclear power and ensure 100% clean, safe, renewable energy.
Last week, the White House announced that it wants to include a massive subsidy for nuclear power plants in President Biden’s $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan. Their proposal would create a $200 billion bailout for all 93 currently operating nuclear reactors in the U.S.—and it would slash in half the budget for solar, wind, and other renewable energy.
ACT NOW: Tell the White House and Congress – no nuclear power in of the American Jobs Plan.
We can’t let nuclear power block renewable energy—our only real solution to the climate crisis. We can’t keep making radioactive waste and risking nuclear disasters that are endangering human health, especially in Indigenous, Black, and Latino communities.
President Biden’s American Jobs Plan represents an historic opportunity to build a thriving, just, and equitable clean energy economy—and to finally put the U.S. on the path to fight climate change with the ambition and scale that we need. As the President originally proposed it, the American Jobs Plan would transform our energy system to 100% clean energy by 2035 and create millions of jobs to do it.
But the nuclear industry sees the writing on the wall—100% clean energy means no more nuclear power. They are furiously lobbying the White House and Congress to prevent that. If they succeed, the American Jobs Plan will fail. We can’t let the nuclear industry get away with it.
