Opposition to Nuclear Energy

WILPFUS is a member of the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability, a coalition that opposes the use of nuclear energy and refers to it as a “dirty” and “dangerous” power source that “makes climate change worse.” 4 5

Nuclear power plants produce no carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gas emissions, and as of 2021 accounted for 19 percent of American electricity production—the largest source of zero carbon electricity in the United States. 6 An October 2018 proposal from The Nature Conservancy noted that zero-carbon nuclear plants produced 7.8 percent of total world energy output and recommended reducing carbon emissions by increasing nuclear capacity to 33 percent of total world energy output. 7
