Tell President-Elect Trump: Stop the $100+ Billion Nuclear Bailout!


Act Now for 100% Clean Energy!

With the election results in, we know that hard times for climate action and clean energy are ahead. But this election was not a referendum for climate denial and dirty energy. We need to mobilize now to stop the bad ideas that are coming.

Dirty energy corporations are already trying to get a jump on the political transition in order to block the shift to renewable energy, including pushing a massive bailout to prop up dirty, old, dangerous nuclear power plants—and they want the next President to make it a national policy, costing $280 billion by 2030.

For the same money, we could get four times more renewable energy than nuclear power, and accelerate the transition to a 100% renewable energy economy--carbon-free AND nuclear-free.

Join us in calling on President-elect Trump, and every state governor, to end subsidies for fossil fuels and nuclear power—and to oppose the nuclear power bailout. This outrageous scheme is starting at the state level, and the industry began pushing presidential candidates take it nationwide even before the election.

The United States can make energy a force for good, both domestically and abroad:

Making sure our kids have clean, healthy air, land, and water.

Creating millions of good jobs and building a prosperous, stable economy.

Making energy affordable, so no one has to choose between the power bill and the grocery bill.

We need to begin pushing President-elect Trump, and our state governors, to say no to the nuclear power bailout, and put our energy dollars to work creating millions of jobs through a clean energy revolution.
