Serious About Global Warming? Encourage Nuclear in Wisconsin

WUI Executive Director Bob Seitz called out Wisconsin global warming activists in an interview with WisPolitics.com.

“If the goal is to have carbon-free generation, then the only real solution is nuclear energy. If the goal is clean energy, the solution is still nuclear energy. If it’s jobs, it really is nuclear energy for export,” Seitz says in a new WisPolitics interview.

Seitz said the group supports real changes to the state’s limits on the construction of new nuclear power plants. Still, he said any suggestion the climate change will actually loosen those limits is off base.

Seitz said after sitting through 16 hours of public hearings on the bill, he suspects the provision was crafted intentionally to ensure no real change to the limits on building a new nuclear power plant in Wisconsin. If it was done mistakenly, it should be fixed, he said.

“It’s a new moratorium or an old moratorium,” Seitz claims. “This is why people are cynical about their government.”
