Nuclear Power: Our Lives Depend on It.
Nuclear power has prevented an estimated 1.8 million deaths.
“We conclude that nuclear energy…needs to be retained and significantly expanded in order to avoid or minimize the devastating impacts of unabated climate change and air pollution caused by fossil fuel burning.”
Air pollution kills an estimated 7 million people/year globally.
“Air pollution is now the world’s largest single environmental health risk.”
Nuclear power has the lowest “deathprint” of all electric generation sources.
“It goes completely against what most believe, but out of all major energy sources, nuclear is the safest”
– Hannah Ritche, Our World in Data, 2017
“…the right way to assess [the danger of] nuclear is to compare it objectively with other sources of power.”
