It’s been more than a year in the making and sometimes it felt like the project might never be finished. But here we are.

Today, NIRS, Friends of the Earth, Sierra Club, Public Citizen and Greenpeace released our first major video–one we hope you’ll help us take viral. It’s at and tells a tale of two energy futures: one, down the track that Exelon, Entergy, Duke and the rest of the nation’s nuclear utilities would take us that would continue reliance on dirty and dangerous nuclear power and fossil fuels. The second energy future describes a safe, clean and affordable nuclear-free, carbon-free energy system powered by renewables and 21st century technology.

In short, the video is exactly what GreenWorld has been about since our beginning in January 2014. But it tells the story in a way that may be much more accessible to the general public.

As the website explains, “There is a better way. There is a way to power our lives without fossil fuels. There is a solution to climate change without nuclear energy. There is a future where we can solve the climate crisis and power our lives from 100 percent renewable sources and energy efficiency. Now is the time to create our fossil and nuclear-free future … A fossil and nuclear-free future powered by renewable sources is possible and the transition is happening now. The benefits of clean, affordable and renewable energy compared with the dirty, expensive legacy of fossil fuels and nuclear reactors are obvious.”

After the video, there are several actions you can take now to help bring us closer to the clean, sustainable energy future and, as time goes on, we’ll be adding more actions you can do.

Watch it. Take Action. And please share it with everyone you know.
