Obama Energy Official: Nuclear Plants Essential To Our Carbon Reduction Goals
Did President Obama just finally come out as pro-nuke?
I’m not referring to the President’s State of the Union Address last month. In that speech, the President made no mention of how nuclear energy production actually fits into what he called his Administration’s “all of the above” clean energy policy. Nor did he mention how protecting the health of America’s existing nuclear power fleet is critical to the realization of our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. In fact, as many nuke industry chiefs will tell you, he’s been mostly mum about the industry for years.
