As the last fireworks have faded from this year’s Fourth of July celebrations, we are presented with the perfect time to reflect on the holiday’s meaning beyond just one day. As a father and grandfather, it is a reminder of all the benefits our nation’s independence offers future generations—an independence that hinges on energy security. As an environmental engineering professor, I’m also struck by the relationships between our country’s freedom, national security and energy dominance, which, at its core, depends on nuclear energy.

Shanna Bobbins is a system engineer at the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and a proud advocate for nuclear energy.

The Nuclear Matters team was on the ground for this year’s Nuclear Energy Assembly (NEA) in Atlanta, Georgia. The event was packed full of excitement and optimism, featuring prominent speakers and eager networkers, all gathered together with the mission of advancing nuclear energy as a reliable, valuable part of the country’s energy future. If you missed this year’s conference or just want to relive the action, here are five takeaways from NEA 2018:

Dr. Peter B. Lyons, Former Nuclear Regulatory Commissioner and Assistant Secretary of Nuclear Energy in the U.S., and Stan Wise, Former Chairman of the Georgia Public Service Commission, add their voices to Nuclear Matters Advocacy Council

Nuclear Matters applauds New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy for signing important, bipartisan legislation that protects New Jersey’s clean energy future by creating a zero-emission certificate program for nuclear power plants, preserving the economic and environmental benefits of this vital energy source for years to come.

As mothers, we care deeply about our children’s futures. As environmentalists, we are fighting to ensure that our children live in a world that prioritizes their health and the environment. With Mother’s Day around the corner, now is the perfect time to consider the ways we can provide for our children – including protecting and preserving their planet.
