USA: $50 billion can be better spent than on nuclear power 

$50 billion can be better spent than on nuclear power    https://www.reformer.com/opinion/letters/letter-50-billion-can-be-better-spent-than-on-nuclear-power/article_15bd7dca-2dc4-11ec-9780-0f30d4e86861.html 22 Oct 21,

Every dollar spent on atomic energy, nuclear power, call it what you will, is a dollar not being spent to solve man made climate change. In the Build Back Better budget reconciliation bill there is $50 billion for new nuclear power. There is no new nuclear power. Literally there is no new nuclear power in the U.S. The U.S. no longer has the N-rated facilities to build nuclear rated parts for reactors.

No nukes can materialize within the timeframe needed to solve climate change. GAIN’s new Versatile Test Reactor (VTR) program is a pipe dream that may or may not work. What a waste of money. Pull the $50 billion out of the budget reconciliation bill.
