Americans’ support for nuclear energy is at its highest point in a decade
In America, almost one-fifth of the nation’s electricity comes from nuclear power plants annually. Just in 2022, these plants generated 772 billion kilowatt hours of electricity.
That’s enough to fuel over 72 million homes.
Since the 1990s, our nation’s reactors have been unwavering, supplying roughly 20% of our power and reigning as the world’s largest producer of nuclear energy.
Nuclear energy serves as the backbone of our clean energy landscape. It contributes to nearly half of America’s carbon-free electricity — an impressive 47% in 2022. No other source can match its role in our sustainability efforts.
When our nuclear power plants produce electricity, they emit zero greenhouse gasses.
Instead, they harness the power of boiling water, creating steam that drives a turbine. This process, known as fission, takes place within the reactor’s core, where uranium atoms split, releasing heat.
Nuclear energy stands as one of the most reliable sources of power in America. In 2022, our nuclear power plants operated at full capacity for over 92% of the time. This remarkable feat makes it the most dependable energy source in our land, surpassing the likes of natural gas, coal, wind, and solar.
While these sources falter, nuclear stands tall, designed to run day and night with minimal maintenance and refueling needed. Currently, there are 92 commercial reactors scattered across our nation.
Already illuminating the lives of Americans in 28 states.
They stand alongside South Carolina and New Hampshire, where more than 50% of their power flows from nuclear energy.
Nuclear energy, a powerful ally in our quest for clean and reliable electricity, stands as a testament to our commitment to a sustainable future.
Together, let us harness its might and carry forth the light for generations to come.

nuclear power releases less radiation into the environment than any other major energy source
The waste stemming from coal plants carries a higher radioactivity level than the waste produced by nuclear power plants.
This revelation sheds light on an important aspect often overlooked. When coal is burned to generate electricity, a by-product called fly ash is released into the air.
Astonishingly, this fly ash from the coal mines carries a staggering 100 times more radiation compared to an equivalent amount of energy generated by a nuclear power plant.

Nuclear power provides 47% of America’s clean energy
Nuclear power plays a vital role in America’s clean energy landscape. Its reliability is unmatched, with nuclear power plants operating at over 92% capacity, ensuring a steady supply of electricity.
Small modular reactors represent a promising new generation of advanced nuclear technologies.
These reactors are smaller, more affordable, and offer greater operational flexibility compared to traditional large-scale nuclear power plants. Investing in these advancements is crucial for the reinvigoration of American energy dominance in the future.
By recognizing the benefits of nuclear power, we can ensure a reliable and environmentally friendly energy supply while promoting technological progress that will shape a brighter energy future for our nation.

China is set to overtake the US as the biggest nuclear generator by the early 2030s
China’s ascent as the world’s largest nuclear power producer, projected to surpass the United States by the early 2030s, raises concerns about American leadership. The potential loss of our top position is unsettling.
It is a matter of strategic importance that we strive to maintain our global leadership in nuclear energy.
It’s common sense.
Sustaining our position requires concerted efforts in innovation, research, and development to ensure that American nuclear capabilities remain at the forefront.
By investing in advanced technologies and fostering a supportive environment for the nuclear industry, we can safeguard our leadership and continue to shape the future of clean and efficient energy production.
Let’s unite and work towards securing a future where American leadership in nuclear power remains unchallenged.

Closing down nuclear power plants may lead to a rise in air pollution levels
Some Democrats want to shut down nuclear.
Shutting down the nuclear power plants could make air pollution go up. When the plants close, we have to find other ways to generate electricity — like fossil fuels.
These release harmful pollutants into the air when they burn. More pollution means poorer air quality. It can harm our health and the environment.
So, closing nuclear power plants might not be the best idea if we aim to keep our air clean and safe.
Nuclear power plants produce electricity without emitting greenhouse gasses, which are the main cause of climate change. Amid the growing concern for the environment, reducing our carbon footprint is crucial.
Nuclear energy should continue to be the future of America.
Is nuclear waste dangerous for America's future?
Nuclear power plants have some risks associated with them, but American engineers have already developed advancements in technology and strict safety measures to mitigate these concerns.
And we’ll keep improving safety protocols rather than dismissing nuclear energy altogether.
A balanced approach that incorporates renewable energy development and nuclear safety improvements is crucial for a sustainable and greener future.
It’s common sense.

The choice we face
In this election, we have a choice. We can continue down the path of divisive politics and short-term thinking, or we can choose a new direction.
We can choose a future that is grounded in common sense, that prioritizes the needs of the American people, and that builds on our strengths as a nation.
Together, we can make this vision a reality.
Together, we can create an America that thrives on innovation, that provides opportunities for all, and that leads the world not just in power, but in principle.
