PowerShift2007 "firmly against nuclear power"

Josh Lynch

Hello Remy,

Thanks for getting in touch with Energy Action Coalition. We are firmly against nuclear power.

In our Youth Statement of Principles (, we state:

"A just climate and energy policy cannot rely on any forms of dirty energy such as so-called “clean coal” or nuclear power. We must recognize the disproportionate impact of global warming and dirty energy on low-income, people of color and indigenous communities and ensure a just transition that improves and supports their physical, social and economic health."

The goals of Power Shift are laid out here ( Power Shift is a unique opportunity for young people from all walks of life to have their voice be heard in the halls of Congress. Monday will be a lobby day on Capitol Hill during which we will be promoting the main asks in the Youth Statement of Principles and calling for bold solutions.
