A Nuclear Disaster

President Bush wants to have his cake and eat it too. He says he wants to protect the American people from terrorism, but he also wants to build more nuclear power plants. Talk about an oxymoron!

Take Action >> Tell Bush Not to BLOW it

There have been more than 100 near misses at nuclear power plants since the Three-Mile Island accident in 1979. Since September 11, 2001, the Bush Administration has done nothing to prevent the same type of attack on a nuclear power plant. Nuclear energy is NOT the answer. It's time for the U.S. to make the switch to renewable energy sources like solar and wind power.

Petition:

I understand you plan to increase the production of nuclear energy in our country. After five years of telling the nation your plans to protect us from terrorism, you are actually offering terrorists the greatest tool to attack our nation. It is true that we need to decrease our national dependence on foreign oil, but nuclear energy is not the answer. Clean, renewable energy sources like wind and solar energy provide the safest and most effective long-term solution. Nuclear energy, on the other hand, has a history of catastrophic accidents and has the potential to kill thousands of Americans and leave vast tracts of land uninhabitable. This April will mark the 20th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown. It is only a matter of time before the same type of tragedy befalls the U.S. In fact, there have been more than 100 near misses in our nation's nuclear power plants since the 1979 Three-Mile Island accident. Is this really the legacy you want to leave behind? Since September 11, your administration has done nothing to protect nuclear plants from the same type of terrorist attack we witnessed that dreadful morning. How can you face the nation and propose building more terrorist targets? Please, instead of funding nuclear danger, invest in renewable energy that will keep our nation safe and independent for centuries to come. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your reply.
