CITIZENS FOR NUCLEAR ENERGY Nuclear energy is one of the cleanest, most abundant sources of electricity in America. And that makes nuclear energy very popular among citizens from all walks of life. Nuclear electric plants generate electricity cleanly, without polluting the atmo sphere. In fact, nuclear energy helps reduce airborne pollutants in the U.S. by Nuclear energy for S1990 'SCEA over 19,000 tons every day. And because nuclear electric plants don't emit carbon dioxide, they don't add to the greenhouse effect, potential global warming and its adverse effect on the envi ronment and our quality of life. America's 112 nuclear electric plants are our second largest source of electricity. But they won't meet the demands of a growing popu lation and economy. We need more plants.
