NUCLEAR INFORMATION & RESOURCE SERVICE Overview
NIRS/WISE is the information and networking center for citizens and environmental organizations concerned about nuclear power, radioactive waste, radiation, and sustainable energy issues. NIRS was founded in 1978 to be the national information and networking center for people and environmental activists concerned about nuclear power, radioactive waste, radiation and sustainable energy issues.
We initiate large-scale organizing and public education campaigns on specific issues such as preventing new atomic reactors, showing how nuclear power is counterproductive to fighting climate change, stopping scientifically indefensible radioactive waste dumps like the proposed Yucca Mountain project, preventing the deregulation and out-of-control release of radioactive materials, pointing out the dangers of radioactive waste transportation, and for a safe, clean, sustainable energy future. Our affiliation with WISE-Amsterdam in 2000 means that we now have offices and programs across the globe.
