The people want to keep their lights on at home at all times. Apparently that is too difficult for the Democrats to achieve.

The Democrats have aggressively pushed us towards renewable sources of energy, such as wind and solar, while leaving other sources of energy, such as nuclear, behind.


The result of this mindset gave us the currently reality we live in today, an inadequate power supply that doesn’t have enough supply to meet the demand. Truly shameful.


Although I am not opposed to expanding renewable energy, at a certain point, we have to face reality and understand we are not ready to completely rely on renewables, we still, very much need sources of energy we used before such as nuclear.


Unfortunately, nuclear energy is not a priority of the Democrats and California’s last nuclear plant, Diablo Canyon Power Plant, was just recently saved from being shut down which accounts for nearly 9% of energy in California.


We need to bring nuclear power back to the table when talking about not only providing energy to the people of California, but combating climate change. In conjunction with renewable energy, nuclear will bring more clean, reliable, carbon-free energy to the people of California.


We must also ensure our energy does not belong to one or a few companies who could price gouge the people of California as a result, and we must also ensure we are energy independent so the people of California may enjoy cheap, clean and reliable energy.


Do you think cost of energy is going to increase in the future with the Democrats in control?

Nuclear power will help provide the electricity that our growing economy needs without increasing emissions. This is truly an environmentally responsible source of energy." - Michael C.Burgess
