John Shanahan, Dr. Ing., Civil Engineer, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: The website: efn-usa.org presents over 1,000 articles, PowerPoint Presentations and videos by more than 600 authors from around the world. This article outlines the high level questions we focus on and our efforts to present different points of view, mainly so that what ends up being the better or right viewpoint is not omitted from the beginning. This applies to nuclear in relation to other energy sources, debates about other energy sources, dealing with public fear of nuclear and understanding low dose radiation.
John Shanahan, Dr. Ing., Civil Engineer, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: Here are photos from many countries showing the positive side of nature and people. We can work to help make this available everywhere in the world through stabil, responsible, constructive governments, good working economies, plentiful, reliable energy sources, sound practices for the environment, nature and wildlife. It can be done.
The Story of Heather Matteson, Materials Scientist, Nuclear Reactor Operator, Environmentalist, Co-Founder Mothers for Nuclear USofA11.Oct.2017
Heather Matteson, Materials Scientist, Nuclear Reactor Operator, Environmentalist, Co-Founder of Mothers for Nuclear: I believe nuclear power advocates care about and want the same things as most Sierra Club moms and members. We want everyone in the world to be able to care for their children like we can for ours. We want a world of less air pollution for our kids. I changed my mind about nuclear, and my dad changed his mind, too. We might be destroying the planet, just like my dad thought. But in the end, we both came to think humanity is smart enough to save it.

Kristin Zaitz, Civil Engineer, Project Manager at Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant, Co-Founder of Mothers for Nuclear: My parents taught us about leaving wilderness more pristine than we found it. Dad took me backpacking as soon as I was old enough to carry a pack. We slept under the stars and marveled at the expanse of the sky, and our small place in a big universe. Knowledge is power. When I was pregnant, I inspected the inside of a containment dome during a refueling outage. I knew from my dosimeter that I got less radiation exposure than my coworker who ate a banana that day. I have run marathons for the last decade and have started taking Oliver, 6 and Kate, 3 on runs with me. Their little lungs work so hard — I feel glad we live near a nuclear plant, which emits no air pollution, and is far away from the polluted skies of Los Angeles and New York
