United States Joins International Declaration for Threefold Increase in Nuclear Energy

By: ATN News

In a momentous announcement at the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Dubai (COP28), U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, together with leaders and ministers from across four continents, unveiled the groundbreaking Declaration to Triple Nuclear Energy. This bold initiative aims to triple the global nuclear energy capacity by 2050, with the United States committing to this collaborative effort to bolster global climate and energy security objectives.

The multinational Declaration underscores the pivotal role of nuclear energy in the collective pursuit of achieving global net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Its primary objective is to ensure that the ambitious 1.5-degree Celsius goal remains within reach, recognizing the urgency of addressing climate change on a global scale.

Beyond emphasizing the significance of nuclear energy in mitigating climate change, the Declaration also addresses the imperative for secure supply chains. It calls upon shareholders of prominent financial institutions, including the World Bank, international financial institutions, and regional development banks, to incorporate nuclear energy into their lending policies. This strategic move is intended to foster the growth and sustainability of nuclear energy initiatives worldwide.

A coalition of nations has rallied behind the Declaration, signifying a collective commitment to this critical cause. The endorsing countries include Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Ghana, Hungary, Japan, Moldova, Mongolia, Morocco, The Netherlands, Poland, Republic of Korea, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and, notably, the United States.

This united front marks a significant step toward addressing the challenges posed by climate change and advancing the global transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources. As the international community unites to combat climate change, the Declaration to Triple Nuclear Energy stands as a testament to the collaborative spirit required to meet the pressing climate and energy security goals that lie ahead.
