The Power Hour is a weekly podcast that discusses the most interesting energy and environmental policy issues of the day with top national experts. Jack talks this week with Christine Fletcher, Vice President, North American Young Generation in Nuclear about the rising popularity of nuclear energy among Americans in general, and with young Americans specifically. They discuss why the accident at Fukushima may not have had the cultural imprint that past accidents, such as Chernobyl and Three Mile Island had, the economic impact of nuclear energy, and how access to more information is key to changing people’s perception about the technology.  NAGYN is a great organization and you can learn more about them here, including links to all of their social media.  Join the conversation with an email to! Thank you for listening and please don’t forget to subscribe and help us to spread the word.
