The U.S. Senate is considering one of the worst pro-nuclear bills to ever come out of that body. The American Nuclear Infrastructure Act of 2020 is being rushed through what’s called the ‘lame duck’ session before a new Congress comes into office.
What makes this bill so bad? Among other things, it would spur additional uranium mining in this country, give away billions of dollars to the nuclear industry, and incentivize nuclear energy at the expense of renewables.
The American Nuclear Infrastructure Act does virtually nothing to curb the dangers of nuclear power. It worsens the environmental justice issues related to nuclear and extends a lifeline to this obsolete and dying industry at the expense of renewables, which are the real answer to the climate crisis. Tell your members of Congress to OPPOSE the American Nuclear Infrastructure Act today.
