Nuclear Information and Resource Service

The Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) was founded to be the national information and networking center for citizens and environmental activists concerned about nuclear power, radioactive waste, radiation and sustainable energy issues (in the United States). NIRS still fulfills this core function, and has expanded both programatically and geographically. NIRS initiates large-scale organizing and public education campaigns on specific issues, such as preventing construction of new reactors, radioactive waste transportation, deregulation of radioactive materials, and more. NIRS international programs and affiliation with WISE (World Information Service on Energy) means that this network spans more than a dozen offices and programs across the globe.
