We do not need nuclear power.
We didn’t need it in the 1970s when the Clamshell Alliance occupied the Seabrook, NH, nuclear power plant site and inspired a national anti-nuke movement. We need it even less today. Renewable energy can meet our needs.
And yet, today, there’s an intense campaign underway to convince people that nukes – even old, decaying ones and unproven new models – are essential for combating climate change. This is a dangerous lie.
Renewable energy is safer, much less expensive and much faster to build. But the pro-nuclear power campaign is gaining momentum and – so far – there’s little protest.
This website is a first step by a group of Clams to change that. See a story about the July 2023 Clam gathering here
