USNEF, the loudest pro-active VOICE for Nuclear Power in recent years!
Our mission is to influence change in
public opinion towards
knowledgeable citizens about nuclear energy and waste repository issues.
Rubio: I support opening Yucca Mountain
Rubio: "Yeah . . . we've already invested money into that facility . . . there has to be such a facility in the United States. That's the one that was chosen long ago, and money was invested. If someone has a better idea...then we'd be open to that. We should follow the science on that. But the bottom line is we, today, including here in South Carolina, are holding onto nuclear material in areas that were supposed to be temporary areas, that have become permanent holding areas for used, radioactive material, and long-term, that is not a safe way to store these things. So you do need a permanent, central depository for it. Yucca Mountain is the place that's gotten the money, and it was chosen years ago. So unless someone can identify a better project, that's the one we should move forward on."
The truth about Yucca Mountain
Help us provide the science and engineering about the YUCCA MOUNTAIN Application Review Process to the grassroots public!
"Although I am uncommitted on Yucca Mountain as a nuclear storage facility,
I believe that the Department of Energy & NRC
Yucca Mountain Application Review Process should be completed".
The Yucca Mountain Study is one of the most critical ISSUES in America to our electrical power supply. Roughly 20% of our power comes from nuclear generation which has operated SAFER than any other volume energy source. Our mission for 10 + years has been to enlighten the grassroots public a basic educational understanding of nuclear, the NATIONS need for the Yucca storage repository AND provide an insight to nuclear waste REPROCESSING technology.
Nuclear power is basically a 97% carbon free energy source.
message to the grassroots:
some statistical FACTS about the "Application Review Process"
These are the facts, the grassroots public should know about Yucca Mountain: It is a thirty + year study by 8 of Americas national laboratories, input and review recommendations from more than 100 US colleges and universities with a taxpayer investment into the study of more than $10 Billion. The license application study was reviewed by more than 200 scientists and engineers at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission with no disqualifying elements found. To put it bluntly, political opposition to such an encompassing study carries little merit. Nearly every stakeholder in the world managing nuclear waste observed the Yucca Mountain study application process. The degree and FACTS of this study are overwhelming.

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.
We are launching our ongoing discussions about SMRs
The link below provides a quick overview of, what are Small Modular Reactors?
This is a very important page as Nevada's were overlooked by the Sandoval administration when the opportunity arose inviting Nevada to JOIN the (WIN) program. State management seems confused between development of cost effective carbon free nuclear energy and its opposition to the Yucca Mountain repository, another "issue" overlooking the benefit of Nevada citizens.
