Below is the electricity production in 2018 from the zero or low carbon energy sources.

Nuclear      807,078 GWh
Hydro 291,724
Wind 274,952
Solar (LS) 66,604 (LS = Large Scale)
Wood 41,411
Solar (SS) 29,543 (SS = Small Scale)
Geothermal 16,728
Landfill Gas 11,336
Other 10,017

Another way to look at it...
Nuclear:                 807,078 GWh
All other clean sources: 742,315 GWh

Nuclear produced more electricity than all of the other clean sources combined. And the progressives want to shut down nuclear. This isn't about reducing CO2. This is about implementing a political agenda.
