Nuclear Energy Quotes by Craig Stevens, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, John Langdon-Davies, Vladimir Putin, Studs Terkel, Stewart Brand and many others.

As expanding economies continue to grow, the one source

As expanding economies continue to grow, the one source of energy that we can develop rapidly, cheaply and with next-to-no emissions is nuclear energy.
Craig Stevens
Nuclear energy is the scientific achievement of the Iranian nation.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable.
John Langdon-Davies
Russia and China also cooperate in mechanical engineering, high-speed railway transportation, lumber processing, nuclear energy production and so on. We have built the Tianwan Nuclear Power Plant. Two units are already operational and are showing good results.
Vladimir Putin
Smug respectability, like the poor, we’ve had with us always. Today, however, … such obtuseness is an indulgence we can no longer afford. The computer, nuclear energy for better or worse, and sudden, simultaneous influences upon everyone’s TV screen have raised the ante and the risk considerably.
Studs Terkel
In terms of weapons, the best disarmament tool so far is nuclear energy. We have been taking down the Russian warheads, turning it into electricity. 10 percent of American electricity comes from decommissioned warheads.
Stewart Brand
…the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear plant…has painfully affected the Soviet people, and shocked the international community. For the first time, we confront the real force of nuclear energy, out of control.
Mikhail Gorbachev
There has always been enough fossil fuels to power human civilization for hundreds and perhaps thousands of years, and nuclear energy is effectively infinite.
Michael Shellenberger
It would be our policy to use nuclear weapons wherever we felt it necessary to protect our forces and achieve our objectives.
Robert McNamara
Nuclear energy is a baseload – meaning it’s power that you can run any time you want, day or night – and carbon-free.
Nathan Myhrvold
Socialists find me too far left; Trotskyites not far enough; ecologists say I am too happy eating foie gras, defending nuclear energy and GM plants; feminists find I am not enough of a woman; anarchists a petit-bourgeois who has sold out because I believe in universal suffrage.
Michel Onfray
Iran doesn’t need one centrifuge. Canada has nuclear energy. Spain has nuclear energy. Switzerland has nuclear energy, and they don’t enrich uranium. You don’t need to enrich uranium in order to use nuclear energy. You enrich uranium in order to produce a bomb.
Naftali Bennett
I hope that none of the countries in the Middle East are planning anything but the peaceful utilization of nuclear energy.
Abdullah II of Jordan
Nuclear energy, in terms of an overall safety record, is better than other energy.
Bill Gates
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
When historians look back on our century, they may remember it most, not for space travel or the release of nuclear energy, but as the time when the peoples of the world first came to take one another seriously.
Huston Smith
I worked for the Office of Management and Budget in the White House, on nuclear energy policy. But I decided it would be much more fun to have a specialty food store, so I left Washington D.C. and moved to the Hamptons. And how glad I am that I did!
Ina Garten
Goodness, I know nothing about nuclear energy.
James Dyson
India has the most technically ambitious and innovative nuclear energy program in the world.
Siegfried Hecker
There is no question we need an energy policy overhaul in America. A key part of that overhaul must include moving forward aggressively with expanding nuclear energy as a renewable energy source. Storing nuclear waste is an important piece of that effort.
Erik Paulsen
Iran’s Supreme Court has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons. President [Hassan] Rouhani has indicated Iran will never develop nuclear weapons. I’ve made clear that we respect the right of the Iranian people to access peaceful nuclear energy in the context of Iran meeting its obligations.
Barack Obama
I believe nuclear energy in Jordan will be done in such a way where it is a public-private partnership so everyone can see exactly what’s going on.
Abdullah II of Jordan
We have wide-ranging joint projects in the nuclear energy sphere, logistics, machine building and trade as a whole [with China].
Vladimir Putin
Changing an economic system that is bent on uncontrolled and poorly measured economic growth and depends on fossil energy for its main objectives, is much more difficult than changing how nuclear energy is used for military purposes. Some think it may be impossible.
Graciela Chichilnisky
We need nuclear energy now, and we will need it in the future.
Conor Lamb
I am a particle physicist, which is the nearest branch to nuclear physics. So in that sense I was the sort of right connection with the subject of nuclear energy and so on.
Abdus Salam
Energy security based on clean & reliable sources is essential for India’s future. Nuclear energy has a key role in India’s energy strategy.
Narendra Modi
I see that the West is beginning to separate the question of nuclear armament from the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
Mir-Hossein Mousavi
We should also challenge this country to come up with strategies and technologies that allow us to produce nuclear energy without necessarily producing a byproduct that can be converted to something far more dangerous. I believe that can be done. It may not be done tomorrow, but it clearly needs to be worked on.
Tom Vilsack
While nothing is certain, I firmly believe our nation is on the verge of a nuclear energy renaissance.
Mike Simpson
She felt Britain should not be so dependent on coal. She was in favour of building up nuclear energy to break the dependence on coal, and the main opposition to nuclear came from the environment movement. Mrs. Thatcher thought she could trap them with the carbon emissions argument.
Nigel Lawson
The only countries that have successfully moved from fossil fuels to low-carbon power have done so with the help of nuclear energy.
Michael Shellenberger
I assume we will have figured out a way to efficiently utilize solar energy and tied that to an efficient way to use nuclear energy in such a way that it doesn’t pose a serious environmental issue.
John Hickenlooper
For years, I have been a strong supporter of clean, safe nuclear energy as an important part of our energy mix.
Christine Todd Whitman
I hope that none of the countries in the Middle East are planning anything but the peaceful utilization of nuclear energy.
Abdallah II
I have stated publicly, I want the same things for Iran that I want for Brazil. I want them to use and develop their nuclear energy for peaceful means.
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva
