The Trump Administration maybe shifting the nation’s energy policy towards nuclear power energy according to sources.
Back in November I wrote about four nuclear power plants about to be built. According to the New York Times, Trump’s transition team was sent into the Department of Energy to possibly purge global warming believers and hinted at nuclear energy being its main focus:
President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition team has circulated an unusual 74-point questionnaire at the Department of Energy that requests the names of all employees and contractors who have attended climate change policy conferences, as well as emails and documents associated with the conferences.
In question after question, the document peppers Energy Department managers with pointed queries about climate science research, clean energy programs and the employees who work for those programs. More broadly, the questionnaire hints at a significant shift of emphasis at the agency toward nuclear power, and a push to commercialize the research of the Energy Department’s laboratories, long considered the crown jewels of federal science.
