Your support and activism make our work possible. Thank you for both.
It has been a remarkable couple of years for NIRS and the movement for clean, affordable, sustainable energy. Five reactor shutdowns–and three more announced; six proposed new reactor projects ended before starting; four power uprates cancelled–and solar, wind and distributed generation have achieved stunning advances that threaten (in a good way!) the entire business model of traditional utilities relying on dirty baseload power plants.
We’ll be continuing and expanding on that progress in 2016. Most importantly, we’ll be working with grassroots groups across the country in the states as each works to implement the EPA’s new carbon reduction rules. This implementation poses both tremendous potential and terrible risk.
In December 2015, we went to Paris for the COP 21 climate negotiations, where we successfully kept nuclear power out of the historic climate agreement.
We can take giant strides toward promoting clean renewables, energy efficiency programs and a 21st century grid or we can backslide into the nuclear nightmare of the 1970s and 80s.
Please make your most generous donation possible today and support our campaigns to ensure we meet our potential and finally end nuclear power in the U.S. and across the globe.
