“Candidates & Issues”

Gary J Duarte , Director, USNEF


I am not a fan of “political strategists” but it seems that everybody becomes one during election years. Through our 10 year trek of nuclear technology advocacy we have recently found that the VETTING of CANDIDATES must include their “position statements on ISSUES”.


Just as many of the grassroots public are beginning to “VET ISSUES”, elected officials also need to engage an educated understanding of the ISSUES listed in many of their candidate websites. Yucca Mountain is just another issue and engagement in “issues education” is going to start being reflected in the voter’s booth.


The Nevada Governor’s opposition to 80% of our grassroots voters on a current tax ISSUE is similar to his 80% opposition on the issues of Common Core, over regulation, AND Yucca Mountain. It is POLITICS that have made our ISSUES political. And to resolve our ISSUES we need to EDUCATE the grassroots public and encourage them to MOVE the POLITICS.


We must engage the constituents into active educational participation of the ISSUES, develop those issues to a “party platform” and advance the constituents platform to the state and national bureaucracy. It is this type of engagement that we must provide to our voters. Once they are educated, then we will have a better vetting platform when questioning candidates. We have to make the “party platform” the FOCUS of our up-line message to the state and national bureaucracy.

Reprocessing Used Nuclear Fuel

A technological overview & proposal for Yucca Mountain
Augustus Merwin PhD. Candidate Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, UNR

Nuclear Power is a Renewable Energy Resource!

Arizona Senator Steve Smith, told a committee that by not recycling nuclear fuel rods like some European countries do, Arizona (America) is missing out on a lot of potential energy. "Basically we just want to burn that energy twice, "he said, and should Arizona (America) decide to incorporate that technology in the future, his bill, SB 1134, would allow us to count that as a renewable energy source.
