Bernie Sanders, Democratic Presidential candidate, is one of the three US Senators who have consistently shown concern about Nuclear Safety, along with Senators Boxer and Markey.
“Create a Clean-Energy Workforce of 10 million good-paying jobs by creating a 100% clean energy system. Transitioning toward a completely nuclear-free clean energy system for electricity, heating, and transportation is not only possible and affordable it will create millions of good jobs, clean up our air and water, and decrease our dependence on foreign oil.
Begin a moratorium on nuclear power plant license renewals in the United States. Bernie believes that solar, wind, geothermal power and energy efficiency are proven and more cost-effective than nuclear – even without tax incentives – and that the toxic waste byproducts of nuclear plants are not worth the risks of the technology’s benefit. Especially in light of lessons learned from Japan’s Fukushima meltdown, Bernie has also raised questions about why the federal government invests billions into federal subsidies for the nuclear industry. We can have an affordable carbon-free, nuclear-free energy system and we must work for a safe, healthy future for all Americans.” https://berniesanders.com/issues/climate-change/ [Note that while Hillary says she will push solar, hidden in her plan is the intent to throw more taxpayer money for more nuclear power research: https://www.hillaryclinton.com/documents/11/Hillary_Clinton_Climate_Change_Fact_Sheet.pdf ]
“Stephen B. Comley Sr @stephencomleysr

Republican Presidential Candidate, Stephen Comley, has an almost thirty year track record of working for nuclear safety:
“Spurred by a letter from then Nuclear Regulatory Commissioner’s Executive Director, Victor Stello, declaring the most vulnerable of our citizens would be left behind in the event of nuclear disaster Stephen B. Comley, Sr. brought the fight to the door of United States’ Presidents, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and the national press.
For twenty-eight-years, Mr. Comley worked outside the political beltway to bring change to an industry fueled by billions of dollars and harnessed control of our nations political machine… The insider information he provided on counterfeit and substandard parts built into seventy-percent of nuclear plants caused the NRC to make the claim he was “conspiring to topple the NRC.” http://www.stephencomleysr.com/about/
