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.
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.
