Emergency planning
NIRS' Petition for Rulemaking to expand emergency evacuation zone and strengthen emergency regulations is now in the middle of its official public comment period--it ends July 16. If it were up to NIRS, we wouldn't need emergency planning because all reactors would be closed; but that's not the current reality.

With hundreds of millions of Americans living within 50 miles of dangerous reactors, it is essential that the strongest possible emergency regulations are in place. Unfortunately, our current rules are not even as good as those that were in place in Japan. We can and must do better.
Please send your comments in here.

Vogtle loans
Last week, the Department of Energy announced that it is extending the deadline for the completion of the taxpayer loan package for construction of the Southern Company's Vogtle reactors in Georgia until the end of the year (it was supposed to be completed by the end of May). This is the latest sign that this loan is in real trouble.

Stopping this loan would not only be a blow to Vogtle, it almost certainly would end the entire nuclear loan guarantee program. More than 9300 people already have sent e-mails to DOE Secretary Chu and President Obama in opposition to this loan. It's time to really step it up and flood them with e-mails.
Please join us and take action here, and then make sure to share this action with everyone you can think of. We can win this battle!

Our colleagues in Japan--at Green Action, FoE Japan and others, have issued an urgent international plea for help from across the world.

As you probably know, Japan is currently nuclear-free--all of its 50+ reactors have been shutdown since the Fukushima disaster of March 2011. But Prime Minister Noda is now seeking restart of the two nuclear reactors at Ohi as soon as possible. And this could be a prelude to more restarts.

Our friends in Japan are asking for us all to raise our voices in protest.
Please act right now and sign a new petition here, which will be delivered to the Japanese embassy in the United States on Monday, June 18. If you're in the DC area and want to help deliver the petition on Monday, please contact us at
