We need an energy system that can fight climate change, based on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Nuclear power already delivers less energy globally than renewable energy, and the share will continue to decrease in the coming years.

Perhaps most significantly, it will squander the resources necessary to implement meaningful climate change solutions.
