The Climate Coalition Case

We are facing an existential crisis. If we all don't work together, everything and everyone will be impacted on the planet. We need everyone working to provide sources of clean energy to be properly valued and welcomed — without discrimination. This includes those working to improve and increase renewables as well as those working to improve and increase nuclear energy. Only by embracing and utilizing all available technologies, will we have a sufficiently diverse portfolio of options that can supplant fossil fuels and reliably power 100% clean energy grids in all the various geographies around the world.
