-- How Will You Use This Story? --


We are offering 15 produced audio features from the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI).  All features are 15 seconds in length, with the audio only available as 96 kbps.


#1 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT! AMERICA'S 104 NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS PRODUCE ABOUT 20-PERCENT OF THE NATION'S ELECTRICITY--ENOUGH TO MEET THE NEEDS OF NEARLY 62-MILLION PEOPLE.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#2 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  AMERICA'S NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS RUN AROUND THE CLOCK--HELPING PEOPLE DEAL WITH SWELTERING HEAT AND HUMIDITY.  ON AVERAGE, THE NATION'S NUCLEAR PLANTS CHURN OUT ELECTRICITY AT 90-PERCENT OF THEIR CAPACITY.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#3 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS OPERATING IN 31 STATES PRODUCE MORE THAN 70-PERCENT OF THE ELECTRICITY THAT COMES FROM EMISSION-FREE SOURCES--INCLUDING HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANTS, AND RENEWABLE TECHNOLOGIES LIKE SOLAR AND WIND.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#4 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  NUCLEAR ENERGY IS THE ONLY LARGE-SCALE, CLEAN-ENERGY SOURCE THAT CAN BE EXPANDED WIDELY, TO PRODUCE LARGE AMOUNTS OF ELECTRICITY--WITHOUT POLLUTING THE AIR.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#5 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  BY SUBSTITUTING FOR OTHER FUELS IN ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION, NUCLEAR ENERGY HAS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED U-S EMISSIONS OF GASES THAT CAUSE SMOG, AND ACID RAIN--AND THAT HAVE BEEN LINKED TO THE THREAT OF GLOBAL WARMING.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#6 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  WITHOUT NUCLEAR POWER, 131-MILLION OF THE NATION'S 136-MILLION PASSENGER-CARS WOULD HAVE TO BE ELIMINATED--IN ORDER TO KEEP U-S CARBON-DIOXIDE EMISSIONS FROM INCREASING.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#7 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  MORE THAN 400 NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, WORLDWIDE, PRODUCE 16-PERCENT OF THE WORLD'S ELECTRICITY--WHILE REDUCING CARBON-DIOXIDE EMISSIONS BY MORE THAN TWO-BILLION METRIC-TONS, A YEAR.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#8 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  A ONE-THOUSAND-MEGAWATT WIND-FARM WOULD OCCUPY 78 SQUARE-MILES.  BUT, A ONE-THOUSAND-MEGAWATT NUCLEAR PLANT WOULD OCCUPY LESS THAN FIVE-PERCENT OF THAT AREA.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#9 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  AVERAGE NUCLEAR-POWER-PRODUCTION COSTS HAVE DECLINED BY MORE THAN 30-PERCENT, OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS--TO A CURRENT AVERAGE OF LESS THAN TWO CENTS, PER KILOWATT-HOUR.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#10 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  IN 2005, U-S NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS AVOIDED THE EMISSION OF 3.3-MILLION SHORT-TONS OF SULFUR-DIOXIDE--MORE THAN TWICE THE AMOUNT AVOIDED BY ALL RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES, COMBINED.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#11 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  LEADING ENVIRONMENTALISTS--LIKE GREENPEACE CO-FOUNDER PATRICK MOORE, AND NORRIS MCDONALD OF THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN ENVIRONMENTALIST ASSOCIATION--SUPPORT NUCLEAR ENERGY, BECAUSE IT'S A CLEAN WAY TO MEET RISING ELECTRICITY DEMAND.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#12 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  DID YOU KNOW THAT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE SO CLEAN AND SAFE THAT THEY PROVIDE EXCELLENT HABITATS FOR WILDLIFE AND PLANTS?  SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.  TO FIND MORE CLEAN-ENERGY FACTS, LOG ON TO "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#13 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  IN 2005, U-S NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS PREVENTED THE DISCHARGE OF 682-MILLION METRIC-TONS OF CARBON-DIOXIDE, INTO THE ATMOSPHERE--NEARLY AS MUCH AS IS RELEASED, EACH YEAR, FROM ALL U-S PASSENGER-CARS.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#14 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  IN 2005, U-S NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS REDUCED EMISSIONS OF NITROGEN-OXIDES BY 1.1-MILLION SHORT-TONS--ROUGHLY THE EQUIVALENT OF TAKING 55-MILLION PASSENGER-CARS OFF THE ROAD.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.

#15 (Click here for audio)

HERE'S YOUR DAILY CLEAN-ENERGY FACT!  ONLY 30-PERCENT OF AMERICA'S ELECTRICITY COMES FROM CLEAN-AIR SOURCES.  HOWEVER, NUCLEAR ENERGY ACCOUNTS FOR ABOUT 70-PERCENT OF THAT CLEAN-AIR ELECTRICITY GENERATION.  TO FIND OUT MORE, VISIT "N-E-I"-DOT-ORG.
