Tonight on the @CNN #climateforum, Democratic candidates will talk through their plans to rapidly transition our country to clean energy. We’re guessing we’ll hear a lot about #renewables & carbon pricing. But what will they say about #nuclear energy?

Will they mention that it’s the largest source of carbon free electricity in the US?

Will anyone point out that, considering the scale of the challenge, we should get rid of fossil fuels before even thinking about getting rid of nuclear?

In Taiwan a heroic act of pro-nuclear environmentalism occurring, RIGHT NOW. Please read & RT this thread, as very few outside of Taiwan know of this struggle. Shih-Hsiu Huang, a Taiwanese pro-nuclear activist managed to organize a group of over 300 volunteers...
and collect the necessary 280,000 signatures to place a referendum to repeal Taiwan’s nuclear phase out law on this November’s ballot. Every day after work, 300+ volunteers spent hours collecting the names, phone numbers, & addresses of hundreds of thousands of supporters.
Finally at the beginning of September, after nearly 3 months of incredible volunteer work, they passed the 280k threshold to get placed on the Nov. ballot, and were hoping to add as many extra signatures as possible to account for some being invalidated on technicalities.
