“The decline of the U.S. industrial base in the front end of the nuclear fuel cycle over the past few decades has threatened our national interest and national security,” said Secretary Brouillette. “This Strategy to Restore American Nuclear Energy Leadership recognizes this challenge and lays out an array of policy options to restore America’s leadership in nuclear energy and technology. As a matter of national security, it is critical that we take bold steps to preserve and grow the entire U.S. nuclear energy enterprise. The Trump Administration is committed to regaining our competitive global position as the world leader in nuclear energy.”

This is the same administration that touts "clean coal" as an energy solution.  Not gonna´ happen.

Why not? US coal production and consumption is declining, isn't it?

Because, you cannot  believe a single word of what this government says.

This would be a fascinating move for America, but unsurprising as the public consciousness around nuclear energy, especially within the climate crisis, is changing. There are still significant hurdles in changing public sentiment around nuclear but there appears to be momentum around it.

You are right.

Fundamentally, just another self serving attempt by the DOE to line their own pockets   while attempting to dictate what happens in the marketplace. Doomed to fail and join a long line of multi-billion dollar wastes of taxpayer money.

Innovation rests with private industry, not the government. That is the strength of the U.S. and that is what should be championed. The DOE is not capable of providing any meaningful help so as long as their primary objective remains the feeding of their insatiable bureaucracy.

Michael, what about financing the new developments like fusion energy?

"Innovation rests with private industry, not the government."

Michael, development of nuclear power was entirely funded by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission in the 1950s. It now provides 19% of all U.S. electricity with no carbon emissions.

"The Trump Administration is committed to regaining our competitive global position as the world leader in nuclear energy.”

Is Trump a big-government, welfare-dependent, liberal snowflake, just now coming out of the closet?
