We are going backward on clean energy and climate change. And unless somebody does something, it is about to get a whole lot worse.
The loss of just a few nuclear plants has wiped out the growth of solar and wind in California, the U.S., Germany, and around the world.
Now, America is at risk of losing 13 more nuclear plants in the next two years. If that happens, it will wipe out all of the electricity America generates from solar — not once, but four times over.
And California might lose Diablo Canyon as early as June 28. If it does, it will nearly wipe out the clean energy provided by all of the state's solar.
None of it is enough.
We are pro-nuclear environmentalists-- independent of the industry-- taking action because the utilities that own the nuclear plants either can not, or will not.
We won't be able to look our future grandchildren in the eyes and tell them we did all we could to safeguard their future and protect clean energy--unless we do something more. Sometimes our greatest regrets are the things we didn't do, not the things we did.
And so we are organizing the first-ever pro-nuclear march — the March for Environmental Hope, June 24 - 28, San Francisco - Sacramento.
We invite you — and your families — to join us. You can come for as little as an hour and as long as all four days.
We believe saving the world should be fun for everyone, including parents with young children. And so our march will involve parades, cook-outs, canoeing, campfires, kids games and s'mores.
We can make history. We can stop the loss of our largest source of clean energy. And we can increase the rate at which we are building new clean energy sources. But we can't do it without your help.
Will you join us?
— Heather, Kristin, Cesar, Michael, and Eric.
P.S. Our effort is independent and we have not and will not accept funding from the utilities that own nuclear plants or any other economic interest.
