Implications of Election Results


We are facing the prospect of losing much, if not all, of the progress which has been made to preserve our planet. The next administration has vowed to abandon the United Nation's Paris Agreement on climate change, increase coal production, dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency - basically deplete and destroy our natural world for the benefit of money, jobs, and industry. Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant and very active in our work as guardians of the future.

 

 


The idea that nuclear power is the solution to climate change is a SMOKESCREEN.
