NEW PETITION: TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA TO REVERSE HIS POSITION ON NUCLEAR POWER

UPDATE: NO VOTE YET IN SENATE ENERGY COMMITTEE ON CEDA; STILL TIME TO ACT


May 27, 2011

Dear Friends,

Our friends at Mothers for Peace in California have put together a new petition to President Obama urging him to reverse his support for nuclear power in light of Fukushima.

They are collecting signatures online and on paper, and will hand-deliver the signatures to the White House in mid-July.

Please sign the petition here.

But that's only step one! Step two: download the petition here, then print out some copies. Ask your friends to sign, take them to your local food co-op, coffee shop, etc. Take them to meetings, festivals, concerts and the like and collect more signatures!

CEDA Update
Thank you! 7,500 letters to the Senate have gone in opposing the "Clean Energy Development Administration" since our alert Wednesday afternoon! Great job!

The Senate Energy Committee met as scheduled yesterday and discussed CEDA, but did not vote on the measure. One reason is that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was not present and wants to offer amendments to the bill (which are likely to be positive amendments, although we haven't seen them yet). In addition, some Republicans were reportedly concerned about how to pay for this new bank--so don't assume, just because you may live in a Red state--that your Senators will automatically support CEDA: they might not and your actions will help (for that matter, don't assume, just because you live in a Blue state, that your Senators will oppose CEDA!). The committee will resume its work some time after next week's Memorial Day recess.

That means there is still time for you to send in your letters and alert your friends and colleagues that this greenwash-named CEDA is really--in the words of the Nuclear Energy Institute--"a permanent financing platform for new nuclear reactors."

You can send your letters opposing CEDA as currently proposed here.

And you can forward both the petition page and the CEDA action page to your friends on Facebook, Twitter and the like--just look for the handy icons on the top right of each page.

International friends: the CEDA action requires a U.S. address; the petition can be signed by anyone.

Thanks for all you do,

Acute exposure to radiation can cause cancer 20 years later: "Acute exposure to radiation will cause nausea and vomiting and worse, according to UCH Medical Physicist Alan Bako. It can cause leukemia and bone cancer."

Fire at another TEPCO nuclear plant in NE Japan - World news - Asia-Pacific - msnbc.com

Other Reactors starts to have trouble in Japan.

The operator of Japan's tsunami-stricken nuclear power complex says a fire broke out at another of its plants, but that it was quickly extinguished and there were no fears of a radiation leak.

"Low-Level" Radioactive Waste is Already High Risk - NIRS

"Low-Level" Radioactive Waste is Already High Risk
MOX Means Worse Waste

Illinois' second drive for a second atomic waste dump continues today at a Springfield press conference as the state's "Low-Level" Radioactive Waste Task Group releases new siting criteria. The first siting process, which targeted Martinsville and Fairfield-Geff, was plagued with scandal and failed. Illinois is already home for one leaky nuclear dump at Sheffield, and will be socked with full responsibility for it in 1998. Meanwhile the 13 atomic power reactors in the state routinely generate more waste, and the state continues to do the industry's dirty work of finding a location, without public consent, never questioning the future production of waste

Tell Your Senators: NO CEDA WITH NUCLEAR FUNDING

Tell Your Senators: NO CEDA WITH NUCLEAR FUNDING

May 25, 2011

The Senate Energy Committee is scheduled to consider tomorrow--May 26, 2011--a bill establishing a new "clean energy" bank called the Clean Energy Development Administration (CEDA).

Unfortunately, this "clean energy" bank is anything but a source for funding genuinely clean energy. In fact, both new nuclear reactors and certain coal projects would be eligible for unlimited taxpayer backed loans if this bank were to be realized.

A press release from our friends at Union of Concerned Scientists with more background on CEDA is here.

Nuclear Crisis in Japan - NIRS

UPDATE, 2:30 pm, Friday, May 20, 2011. The world’s media are shocked (shocked, we tell you…) that three Fukushima reactors melted down. Where have they been the past 10 weeks? Where did they think all that radiation was coming from? You know, that radiation that has caused the evacuation/relocation of people as far as 25 miles from the reactor site? Not to mention contamination of food, seawater, etc…..

nuclear workers request for speaking out

WHAT THE WORLD IS ABOUT TI FIND OUT IS THAT THIS IS 600 MILLION TIMES HEROSHIMA, THUS FIGURE THE DROPPING OF 600 MILLION A-BOMBS, THIS WOULD CAUSE A POSSIBLE NUCLEAR FREEZE!!!!A FEAR THAT OUR FATHERS HAD IN THE EARLY 50’S THUS BOMB SHELTERS!!!

Radionuclides, once deposited by rainwater or air onto the ground, will find their way through the ecosystem. We are already tracking its path from rainwater to creek runoff to tap water, but we would also like to monitor how much these isotopes that make their way into our food. For example, how much gets taken up by the grass and eventually winds up in our milk?

Kan denies ordering TEPCO to stop seawater injection at reactor

TOKYO — Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Monday denied having instructed Tokyo Electric Power Co to stop injecting seawater into the troubled No. 1 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, brushing aside criticism that an alleged suspension order from him may have worsened the situation

The Implications of the Fukushima Accident on the World's Operating Reactors on Vimeo

May 22 2011
Arnie Gundersen with Fairewinds explains how containment vents were added to the GE Mark 1 BWR as a "band aid" 20 years after the plants built in order to prevent an explosion of the notoriously weak Mark 1 containment system. Obviously the containment vent band aid fix did not work since all three units have lost containment integrity and are leaking radioactivity. Gundersen also discusses seismic design flaws, inadequate evacuation planning, and the taxpayer supported nuclear industry liability fund.
