Oil & Gas 360 Publishers Note: We have been working on an article “A Balanced Power Plan for Humanity”. Nuclear is only one part of a complete plan to get the lowest kWh to all of the people to help elevate everyone from poverty. 

Why don’t politicians ever talk about nuclear energy? Except for some Congresspeople firing up their bases, there is no serious political discussion about nuclear power in the mainstream media. And when there is, it’s all fear and doom, contrary to reality.

But a bipartisan group of political leaders formed an organization to address just this issue. Nuclear Matters is composed of folks like former Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN), former Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH), and former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Carol Browner. These leaders understand first-hand the political and economic forces that shape our country and our energy needs.

Some Politicians Do Care About Nuclear Matters -oilandgas360

Former Senators Evan Bayh (D-IN) and Judd Gregg (R-NH) join a host of high-level politicos in a Nuclear Caucus August 4th in informing the public about the clear benefits that reliable, affordable and carbon-free electricity from nuclear power provides to America as part of Nuclear Matters. NUCLEAR MATTERS

Nuclear Matters seeks to inform the public about the clear benefits that nuclear energy provides to our nation and they have formed a Nuclear Caucus that will meet Tuesday, August 4th. Hosted by former EPA Administrator Carol Browner and former Nuclear Regulatory Commissioner Jeff Merrifield, anyone can participate.

The Caucus will discuss the latest political and legislative news on nuclear, including:

Senate Passes NELA. The Nuclear Energy Leadership Act passed as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, which will accelerate the development of advanced reactors and pave the way for further collaboration between the federal government, our national labs and industries across the country, highlighting the growing consensus on the value of nuclear power in building America’s clean energy future.

DFC Lifts Prohibition on Nuclear Funding. Last week, the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation announced it will lift its legacy prohibition on funding nuclear energy projects. This decision will bolster U.S. national security, boost our economy and help advance global clean energy goals.
