Opposition to Nuclear Energy

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy opposes nuclear energy. A statement on the SACE website lists nuclear with coal as examples of “high-risk energy sources” that “endanger our economy, health, security, water resources, and the environment.” [1] Nuclear power plants produce no carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gas emissions, and as of 2021 accounted for 20 percent of American electricity production—the largest source of zero-carbon electricity in the United States. [2] An October 2018 proposal from The Nature Conservancy noted that zero-carbon nuclear plants produced 7.8 of total world energy output and recommended reducing carbon emissions by increasing nuclear capacity to 33 percent of total world energy output. [3]
