Nuclear advocates suggest that to address the climate crisis, we need to continue using nuclear power. In fact, aside from fossil fuels, nuclear power would be the worst among choices available to us. This animation explains why.

The 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant has recently been brought back into the limelight due to the success of HBO’s Chernobyl miniseries. NEIS Director Dave Kraft debunks some of the myths associated with the incident in the first of a series of videos aimed to bring Chernobyl’s truths to the forefront.

Nuclear energy fails the “2×4” Rule for fighting climate change. Nuclear is NOT the answer to reduce carbon.

The nuclear industry wants to ship over 80,000 metric tons of high-level radioactive waste all over the country using trains, trucks, and barges. This would put millions of people and our fresh water at great risk. Find out how to solve this issue.

NEIS Director, Dave Kraft discusses the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) and how its impact is raising the price of your electric bills.

Radioactive Waste Specialist, Kevin Kamps from Beyond Nuclear discusses the risks of high-level radioactive waste transportation.

Since the Fukushima nuclear reactor disaster began on March 11th, it’s been a question on everybody’s mind: can it happen HERE? and, how BAD will it be?

PSR-Chicago’s Dr. Andy Kanter answered that question at a 20th Anniversary of Chornobyl event NEIS held in 2006.

The answer is most emphatically — YES! it CAN happen here. And — it won’t be pretty.

Nuclear Hotseat Show - Dec. 8 2017

A week after the “Nuclear Reaction” party ended at University of Chicago, and the dusty fallout from the artsy multi-colored mushroom cloud simulation settled to the Earth, producer Libbe HaLevy’s Nuclear Hotseat show took the University to task for its infomercial promoting nuclear power:

Will Nuclear Power's Death Spiral Kill Us All?

Harvey Wasserman’s Solartopia show of March 9th, featured the Moe, Larry and Curly of the anti-nuclear movement – Kevin Kamps of Beyond Nuclear, Tim Judson of Nuclear Information and Resource Service, and Dave Kraft of Chicago’s Nuclear Energy Information Service (NEIS). We discuss Fukushima on the 6th anniversary of the disaster, and the nuclear bailouts in Illinois, New York and Ohio.

We began by assessing the final collapse of the push for new nukes in the US, especially with the collapse of Westinghouse and France’s Areva. But we then examine the far more terrifying turf of dying old uncompetitive nukes being kept on line with huge state-based hand-outs.

Basically it boils down to your money AND your life.
