We ask you to help make this happen.
The atomic industry desperately needs $36 billion in federal loan guarantees.
If we stop them, new reactor construction in this country will be severely restricted, if not ended altogether.
As the editor’s blog currently posted at NukeFree.org explains:

Japan and Germany have turned away from atomic power.
The first Congressional vote on these guarantees, as embedded in the 2012 federal budget, could happen in an Appropriations subcommittee as early as June 2.
We ask that you contact the White House and your Senators and US Representatives as often and forcefully as you can. You can do that on your own, or through the NIRS Action Alert linked through NukeFree.org:

Tell them it’s time we scrap the failed atomic power experiment, and embrace the green-powered future we need to survive.
This is a battle that we can win. Defeating these handouts will have a HUGE impact.
Please join us. This definitive turn away from atomic power CAN happen.
