What people say

Michael Shellenberger

“There is a strong consensus among climate policy experts that an expansion of nuclear energy will be required to significantly reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality”

Michael Shellenberger, environmental policy expert, cofounder of Breakthrough Institute (source: 4-traders.com, 7 July 2017)

Yukiya Amano

 

 

“The use of nuclear power reduces carbon dioxide emissions by about two gigatonnes per year. That is the equivalent of taking more than 400 million cars off the road – every year”

Yukiya Amano, Director General, IAEA (source: iaea.com, 28 August 2017)

Jason Bordoff

   

“If policymakers get more serious about climate change, they will need nuclear to play a role”

Jason Bordoff, Professor and Founding Director Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University (source: Industrial Equipment News, 8 August 2017)
