In an interview with Insider News

I want to be super clear in my opinion Germany should not only not shut down the nuclear power plants it should reopen the ones that shutdown…It’s crazy to shutdown nuclear powerplants, especially in a place where there’s not natural disasters.

During the Code Conference in Beverly Hills, California, about powering electric cars.

I’m also kind of pro-nuclear. And I’m sort of surprised by the public sentiment against nuclear. I’m not saying we should go build a whole bunch of new nuclear plants. But I don’t think we should shut down ones that are operating safely. They did this in Germany and had to create a whole bunch of coal power plants, and I don’t think that was the right decision, frankly.

On his personal blog

Nuclear is ideal for dealing with climate change, because it is the only carbon-free, scalable energy source that’s available 24 hours a day. The problems with today’s reactors, such as the risk of accidents, can be solved through innovation.

I think if we’re going to tackle global warming, I think nuclear power is the only way you can create massive amounts of power.

To create more of these clean energy jobs, we need more production, more efficiency, more incentives. That means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country.
