We used to be skeptical of nuclear. Now we consider it essential to protecting our children from pollution, our landscapes from sprawl, and future generations from global warming.

We've learned a lot from our experience working at Diablo Canyon, California's last nuclear power plant. We started Mothers for Nuclear as a way to share our stories and help address concerns. We also hope to begin a dialogue with those who are skeptical of nuclear.

As mothers, we feel a responsibility to protect our children, and the planet they'll inherit.
