DOCTORS FOR NUCLEAR ENERGY
Fight climate change. Eliminate air pollution. Cure the planet
Doctors for Nuclear Energy is a volunteer organization with no connections to industry. We believe that the evidence points to Nuclear Energy as the most effective tool to transition off fossil fuels and eliminate air pollution.
Every year 7 million people die prematurely from air pollution. Particulate matter from coal fired power plants contribute to millions of cases of pneumonia, asthma, heart disease, stroke and premature birth.
Climate change poses enormous challenges to health. Forest fires, droughts, food shortages and the spread of tropical diseases threaten the peace and stability or our societies
It is a little know fact that Nuclear Energy has already successfully replaced the burning of fossil fuels in France, Sweden and Ontario and decarbonized their electricity.
We advocate for nuclear energy as the evidence based tool we need right now to clean up our air and reduce the impacts of climate change.
WHY RENEWABLES CAN'T FIX THE CLIMATE
Resource intensive and intermittent collectors like panels and turbines that need fossil fueled back up power are not the solution
