However in the face of this pushback and conflict, they argue that “science and data is all we have”. It’s the science they base their environmental movement on, which directly challenges popular beliefs and myths around nuclear energy and these prevailing issues.
So are they right? In the face of a very real climate emergency, with time ticking towards irreversible climate change - is it now time that people around the world pause to take a sober look at the science, stop the mass closure of nuclear power plants and fully reconsider nuclear energy as a viable solution to this ensuing catastrophe?
Atomic Hope follows a small global movement of individual pro-nuclear environmentalists across the span of a decade. These unpopular nuclear advocates have positioned themselves in a David and Goliath battle, to save the climate with a proven technology with a chequered past; carbon free nuclear power. These activists believe that nuclear is the only solution to combat our runaway climate and energy crisis. Environmental advocacy is hard extremely work and fighting for nuclear in this arena is not popular. As these personal sacrifices, strains and societal conflicts take their toll on our activists, we are forced to empathise with the struggle these men and women are having.
