History of EFN-USA
EFN started growing in 1996 around Bruno Comby (author of 8 books on healthy living, and environmentalism) after the publication of his book "Environmentalists For Nuclear Energy" and his participation in numerous TV and radio debates on this occasion.
At the end of 2002, Berol Robinson (then freshly retired as former science officer at UNESCO) and some American members of EFN-International decided to create EFN-USA as a new organization in the United States. Benefiting from the experience of EFN-International previously based in France, the new EFN-USA association (North American sister organization of EFN) was launched in February 2004.
The President of EFN-USA since 2013 is now John SHANAHAN. The head office of EFN-USA is currently located in Denver, Colorado.
EFN considers that environmental opposition to nuclear energy is the greatest misunderstanding and mistake of the century.
If well managed, nuclear energy is a very clean energy, does not reject polluting gases in the atmosphere, uses very few construction materials (per kWh) compared to solar & wind energy, produces very little waste (almost totally confined), and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect (no carbon dioxyde).
True environmentalists are therefore be in favor of nuclear energy. EFN works at informing the public of the environmental benefits of nuclear energy, the cleanest energy resource massively available.
Our belief is that more efficient uses of energy, and self sustainable lifestyles should be promoted on the long term, and that in the meantime renewable energies and nuclear energy should totally replace the use of oil, coal and gas, wherever possible.
EFN unites people throughout the world who are concerned about the future of our planet and want to keep it clean and protect nature, thanks to the use of nuclear energy and renewable energies in replacement of oil, gas and coal.
EFN-International currently gathers over 12,000 members and supporters, with 300 local correspondents in 65 countries, on five continents.
Who are the members of "Environmentalists For Nuclear Energy, Inc." ?

Fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) the dominant energy today, are being rapidly exhausted, and are the cause of wide scale pollution of our environment, while nuclear and renewable energies are much cleaner : they have absolutely no global effect, produce only very small amounts of waste that are easy to manage, and these energy sources (renewable energies and clean nuclear energy), if well managed, are sustainable in the very long term.
Together we can build a better world
WITH CLEAN NUCLEAR ENERGY !
