There is another saying in science — that nature bats last. It doesn’t matter to the physics of climate that policies were driven by bad actors. What matters is actual emissions. And nuclear plant emissions are carbon-free. This is not to say, regarding House Bill 6, that the ends justify the means. They don’t. But the appropriate question is not what is behind us, but how to set ourselves up for what is ahead, writes Maria Korsnick, president and CEO of the Nuclear Energy Institute in Washington, DC.
