Twelve Years After Fukushima, More U.S. Nuclear Energy Is a National Security Imperative

Julia Nesheiwat writes in RealClearEnergy about the importance of nuclear power.

The C3 Take
  • While the Fukushima accident was tragic, the deaths associated with the incident were a result of poorly managed evacuations, not nuclear radiation.
  • Nuclear energy is our largest source of carbon-free power and is one of the safest energy sources that we have.
  • Archaic regulations are stifling innovation which sets the U.S. back on the global stage and hinders our energy security.
  • While bipartisan support is beginning to grow, the U.S. should modernize regulations to accelerate the growth of its nuclear energy fleet.

“As tragic as Fukushima was 12 years ago, the world has rightly sought to learn and apply lessons that embrace the opportunity that nuclear technology offers. I am encouraged to see bipartisan and public support increasing in the United States. Nuclear energy’s time is now at hand; let us deploy a new, exciting, safe, and secure future.”
