‘Fearless Green Deal’ would deliver carbon-free nuclear power worldwide without wrecking economy – Atomic Insights

Engineer, author and Dartmouth College teacher Robert Hargraves says government doesn’t need to wreck the economy with the Green New Deal, as recommended by Rep. Sarah Copeland-Hanzas and other members of the Vermont Climate Caucus. Instead, it can support new, safe, nuclear reactors.

"The candidates’ Green New Deal illustrates the political maxim “never let a crisis go to waste”. Reducing CO2 emissions is buried under trillion dollar promises to guarantee jobs, health care, housing, healthy food, improved infrastructure, and reduced industrial pollution. Our climate-energy crisis is not national; it’s global, so the Green New Deal can’t solve it. Even the UN IPCC Paris agreement can’t reduce emissions enough; it falls short by a factor of ten.Rich nations won’t stop their emissions while letting developing countries advance by burning ever more coal. Coal burning is the most rapidly expanding power source on the planet, because it’s reliable and cheap. But fearless developing nations would use nuclear energy sources if we make them cheap enough and accessible enough.
