In the 1960s and 70s, the US was the world leader in nuclear technologies.
Half of the US nuclear fleet is now at risk of premature closure by 2030.
Wind and solar receive, respectively, 17 and 140 times more in federal subsidies than nuclear.
Thirty states have mandates to deploy clean energy that exclude nuclear.
- It would take 12 years to replace the 120 billion kilowatt-hours of yearly production from the eleven at-risk nuclear plants with wind and solar, and 81 years to replace the entire reactor fleet.
- Dozens of climate scientists and conservationists urged former president Barack Obama to do everything in his power to protect and expand America's largest source of clean energy. They have also written to President Donald Trump and the leaders of large environmental organizations.
