Nuclear electricity is green power for our growing, digital world.
Entergy is the second largest producer of nuclear electricity in the U.S. and the sponsor for the Nuclear Clean Air Energy national education initiative to broaden awareness of safe, clean, affordable and reliable nuclear energy and careers in sciences, technology, engineering and math.
Did you know:
● There are no greenhouse gases produced in making nuclear electricity. Nuclear is clean and green.
● Nuclear power is the only clean, base load 24/7/365 source of electricity that is “on” when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow.
● There are 104 nuclear reactors in the U.S. that account for 70% of green electricity avoiding almost 650 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year – that’s nearly as much CO2 as is released from all U.S. passenger cars.

Nuclear Clean Air Energy IndyCar #78 Announcement
“We must tell our nuclear energy story with clarity, conviction and confidence. It is especially relevant now. Clean air is our benefit; safety is our unending vow.”
“The twin challenges of climate change and rising electricity demand have pressed the United States and many other countries to seek out large-scale, low-carbon electricity sources. Nuclear energy is a central part of this global push because it has few equals when it comes to producing virtually emissions-free electricity at scale.”
“It's very clear to me that, in today's environment of concern for climate change and concern for clean air, nuclear energy satisfies both those concerns. It is both clean from the point of view of air pollution and from a climate change point of view.”
“Encouraged by nuclear energy's environmental and economic benefits, more and more Americans favor nuclear energy. This emerging consensus will be crucial to ensuring that nuclear energy continues to play a vital role in meeting U.S. energy and environmental goals. Today, pressing concerns about the economy and the environment are driving a more sensible look at nuclear power, given its ability to create tens of thousands of high-paying jobs and produce continuous carbon-free power.”
“I surprised myself. I used to be, you know, pretty much a knee jerk environmentalist on this particular subject. And then because of climate change I reinvestigated the matter and discovered that I'd been misled in many of the details on how nuclear works. And I finally got to the point where I'm so pro-nuclear now that I would be in favor of it even if climate change and greenhouse gases were not an issue.”
“The polling is pretty clear on this. The people who turn out to be the most positive about nuclear are people who live near a present nuclear plant; they have tended to have visited the plants, see how clean and safe it is, the local jobs; they'd love to see a couple more reactors added to the side which are usually already licensed. So its one of those things of, you know, you hear the not in my backyard argument, but if you actually ask people who have nuclear in their backyard, they're pretty enthusiastic about it.”
“If all the electricity you used in your lifetime was nuclear, the amount of waste that would be added up would fit in a Coke can.”
“Now, I know it has long been assumed that those who champion the environment are opposed to nuclear power. But the fact is, nuclear energy remains our largest source of fuel that produces no carbon emissions. To meet our growing energy needs and prevent the worst consequences of climate change, we'll need to increase our supply of nuclear power. It's that simple.”
“We're going to have to build a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in America. This is only the beginning. My budget proposes tripling the loan guarantees we provide to help finance safe, clean nuclear facilities.”
“If you care about greenhouse gases, we've got to look at a safe and secure nuclear industry.”
“I hope that it is not too late for the world to emulate France and make nuclear power our principal source of energy. There is at present no other safe, practical and economic substitute for the dangerous practice of burning carbon fuels.”
“By all means, let us use the small input from renewables sensibly, but only one immediately available source does not cause global warming, and that is nuclear energy.”
“I find it sad, but all too human, that there are vast bureaucracies concerned about nuclear waste, huge organizations devoted to decommissioning nuclear power stations, but nothing comparable to deal with that truly malign waste, carbon dioxide.”
“I am addicted to electricity. So are you. And so is your business. Nuclear alone won't get us to where we need to be, but we won't get there without it. Despite its controversial reputation, nuclear is efficient and reliable. It's also clean, emitting no greenhouse gases or regulated air pollutants while generating electricity. And with nuclear power, we get the chance to preserve the Earth's climate while at the same time meeting our future energy needs.”
“We have a choice to make: We can either continue the 30-year emotional debate about whether we should embrace nuclear energy, or we can accept its practical advantages. Love it or not, expanding nuclear energy makes both environmental and business sense.”
“Unless we embrace something like nuclear, it's going to be very hard to see how we get to a place where we have 24-7 reliable, affordable power that doesn't degrade the environment.”
“Nuclear power is going to be an important part of our energy mix. It is 20 percent of our electricity generation today, but it is 70 percent of the carbon-free portion of electricity today. And it is baseload. So I think it is very important that we push ahead.”
“If you look at the difference between a coal plant and a nuclear plant, me personally, I'd rather be near a nuclear power plant. Nuclear power plants' record in the United States is really very, very good.”
“Nuclear power, which generates far fewer greenhouse gases than ordinary fossil fuels, should be part of the energy mix as this country and others move toward a less-carbon-intensive world.”
“Given that nuclear power produces essentially no carbon emissions, it's an appealing option for consistent and relatively clean electricity generation.”
“A nuclear expansion is essential to weaning ourselves from fossil fuels and to limiting emissions; Congress can't afford to excise that from our energy portfolio.”
“President Obama is right to push nuclear power as a necessary ingredient to wean this nation from polluting fossil fuels that also keep it dependent on unpredictable foreign sources.”
