Beyond Nuclear joins with Ralph Nader to promote carbon-free, nuclear-free energy economy via Beyond Nuclear

On Dec. 12th, Beyond Nuclear’s Kevin Kamps joined with Ralph Nader (photo, left) in an hour-long presentation to the Climate Reality Check Coalition on why nuclear power is a false solution to the climate crisis.

As described in the event announcement, Ralph Nader is one of America’s most effective social critics – named by The Atlantic as one of the 100 most influential figures in American history, and by Time and Life magazines as one of the hundred most influential Americans of the twentieth century, his documented criticism of government and industry has had widespread effect on public awareness and bureaucratic power. He is a long time watch dog of the nuclear industry and critic of nuclear power.

The conference call, with about 70 participants listening in and asking questions from across the country, was hosted and moderated by Allison Fisher, Outreach Director for Public Citizen’s Energy Program.

The announcement of the conference call was sent out by Rose Braz of the Center for Biological Diversity, as well as Ted Glick of Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN was a coalition partner with Beyond Nuclear in the cancellation of the proposed new Calvert Cliffs 3 reactor in Maryland):

“We are pleased to have Ralph Nader and Kevin Kamps join our call to discuss why nuclear power is a false solution to the climate crisis.

The climate crisis is upon us. The world’s leading climate scientists agree that time is rapidly running out and that urgent steps are needed to dramatically reduce our carbon emissions. In recent months, a small number of prominent climate activists have been urging the movement to accept nuclear power as a necessary part of the mix needed to get us off fossil fuels. Ralph Nader is a prominent spokesperson for the view that uranium fuel, as an alternative to fossil fuels, is a false choice and to address climate change and the consequences of dirty energy we must move toward a safe, efficient, sustainable and democratic energy economy, rather than promote dangerous solutions like nuclear power and fracking.

We’ll be joined by Ralph Nader and Kevin Kamps of Beyond Nuclear to discuss why nuclear is not the answer. Our discussion will include:

The exorbitant price and long completion time for bringing new reactors online; the opportunity cost of investing in nuclear power; the feasibility of a nuclear-free, carbon-free electricity sector; unique issues such as lethal waste, proliferation and safety.
