# Pro Nuclear Power
29 Sep 2021
During the Code Conference in Beverly Hills, California, about powering electric cars., Elon Musk said
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.
