The scheduled premature shutdown of Indian Point-3 will all but guarantee a massive increase in fossil fuel use, according to an op-ed written by American Nuclear Society President Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar and Executive Director/CEO Craig Piercy that was published in the New York Daily News on November 30.

Indian Point-3 is slated to be shut down in April 2021, four years before its operating license expires.

President's Column

What does “clean” mean to you?

Originally published in the August 2020 issue of Nuclear News.

Have you wondered why, in this age of climate alarmism, nuclear isn’t considered the choice for clean power production? You seldom hear nuclear mentioned in the same context as wind, solar, and hydropower. Yet nuclear is the cleanest and safest form of energy today that is both reliable and scalable.


President's Column

400 words?!?

Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar

Originally published in the July 2020 issue of Nuclear News.

It’s my first column as ANS president and I’m limited to 400 words? Well, it turns out you can say a lot with a little. Take, for example, “Shelter in place,” and “Say their names.” These phrases have been at the forefront of our consciousness in recent months, and each invokes a host of emotions and mental images. What should the ANS catchphrase be? “Into the Nuclear Future”? “Just Nuke It”? “Nuclear, it keeps going . . . and going . . . and going . . . ”? How about, “Nuclear: The choice of a new generation”?
