Nuclear energy produces clean electricity, but why isn't it considered as a main energy generation source to address climate change? Matthew and Amanda join us this week to answer our questions and discuss the role of nuclear in the energy transition. They are both active members of NAYGN (North America Young Generation in Nuclear). NAYGN provides opportunities for a young generation of nuclear enthusiasts to develop leadership and professional skills, create life-long connections, engage and inform the public, and inspire today’s nuclear technology professionals to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
