Increase support for nuclear power to reduce reliance on fossil fuels
We need to open more, and keep open longer nuclear power plants to reduce our reliance on burning fossil fuels which contributes to global warming, while creating robust storage and systems for the processing of toxic waste. This would be a huge step in reducing our output of greenhouse gases.
Nuclear power has caused relatively few deaths in comparison with the most conservative estimates of the respiratory illness and other impacts of climate change on humans. If we replace fossil fuels, this should help slow global warming and mitigate its impacts. Nuclear power is statistically much safer than many people believe and it should be exploited fully to fulfil our responsibility to take care of the Earth for future generations.
