A Must See: New Film by Heritage Foundation on Nuclear Energy in America

D.C.-based think tank The Heritage Foundation will release starting this Sunday, March 11, a new 38-minute documentary on the benefits of nuclear energy in America. The film, “Powering America,” is told by plant employees and residents in close proximity to existing U.S. nuclear energy facilities who discuss a variety of issues, including: nuclear plant safety, economics, fuel cycle and radiation protection. The documentary also explains how the industry has improved plant safety measures based on lessons learned from the accidents at Three Mile Island and Fukushima Daiichi.

The film will be broadcast on the Documentary Channel over the next few weeks. Check the foundation’s website for show times.

In addition, The Heritage Foundation will be hosting a special, private screening for the film this Thursday, March 8, at 6 p.m. at its offices in Washington D.C. If you are interested in attending, contact Pamela Hughes (Pamela.Hughes@heritage.org) to see if there is space available.

Below is a link to the 3.5-minute trailer.
