Congress may vote $25 billion atop $8 billion already given for-profit corporations to build nuclear plants. Think the Gulf disaster was horrific? Think Chernobyl in the USA!

Just when you think insanity has peaked, when politicians cannot possibly do more for wealthy corporation execs and less for earth, wildlife and the 80% of Americans trying to survive the onslaught of greed, along comes the prospect of billions to corporate elites to build nuclear plants govt-guaranteed to also enrich the for-profit corporations that will operate them. They don't have the votes for money for the unemployed or solar, wind or biomass, but they may find the votes for $25 Billion to for-profit nuke builders! Of course they will say the nukes will be safe. They said drilling in the Gulf was safe, that Chernobyl was safe, that Three Mile island was safe, that coal mines were now safe, that we'd be out of Iraq and Afghanistan years ago, that the megabanks would not dare to behave so greedily that millions would lose their jobs and homes while they paid themselves bonuses totaling $8 Billion from the taxpayer bail-out funds. Quadrupling cause for outrage and grave concern is the fact that uranium mining companies are already filing thousands of claims throughout the Grand Canyon drainage basin, even though the National Park Service has already formally reported that radioactive waste from uranium mining has already rendered several Grand Canyon Basin waterways too toxic for drinking, crop irrigation or even swimming! They'll make a killing selling the uranium for the new plants, and don't give a rip about the radioactive water they'll leave behind. Please sign the petition, and thank you for all you do!

Noted and letter sent to AZ Representative John Shaddeg!! Nuclear must be ended. If there is to be $25 billion going somewhere, it needs to be for sustainable energy, solar, wind, hydro, bio ~~ nukes are NOT safe!!!! When will we learn? Will we have to experience another nuclear catastrophe costing the lives of thousands if not millions?? Nuclear must be stopped!!

I tried to sign the petition. The site asked me for my zip code. When I entered the zip, I was advised that people in my zip weren't included. My zip is 15901. See what happens. When I lived in Ohio, they built the Davis-Besse pronounced Bessy nuclear plant. It was a big mistake! Workers that worked on it during the day returned at night to delete progress. The plant did become operational, but not for long. It was a big write off for the power companies. Has anyone read the latest edition of "Smithsonian" magazine? You can get it at most libraries. Very good, but shocking in a lot of aspects. Greg, thank goodness for you and others that still have a combination of intellect and common sense!

We fought the good fight trying to stop them but as you know money always wins. Damn them they are just asking for more trouble. Oh well at least we will go fast ( I hope) instead of suffering.

Thank you Linda, and Dale, there's a nuclear plant 20 miles from me on the CT river. I remember after Sept 11 watching military jets streaking around it for weeks. They knew full well that a terrorist or any lunatic could fly a hijacked airliner into it and render uninhabitable for generations an area of over a million in population. The woman who got me paying more attention to nuclear has been "away" for months. Barabara of Dare To Dream Network. She and her husband were very active in anti-nuclear, and she's the one who alerted me to NIRS, the sponsor of this petition. I'm blessed with many Care2 friends who get it when it comes to this kind of thing, and scores of them like Suzanne above are devoted, smart, well-informed and alert on this and so many matters important to human and animal life. But most importantly, they are ALL big-hearted and unselfish, and that's the thing that matters. Thanks for tip re Smithsonian, will look it up when time permits.

Gregory, thanks so much for putting this on. I spent my twenties and thirties fighing this Nuke issue. I lived only 8 miles from the Seabrook Nuclear Power station in New Hampshire and I was constantly devoted to stopping it. Clamshell Alliance did a wonderful job, bless everyone of them, as well as the people who would come from all over the United States to join us in our protest.

Unfortunately it was shoved down our throats. It all started when the town of Seabrook voted against the nuclear power plant being built there. I was so proud of the towns people. Then in came the money from the Nuke people. So a new Fire Station was built, a new Police Station, a new Senior Citizen Center, a roll back in property taxes, and the list went on. Again the vote went out to the town, this time the votes were bought, it passed. Of coarse not all people in the town were bought out, and many town people expressed their anger and dismay for years afterwards.

It was built at the shore of a popular ocean area, that in the summer the numbers of people increased in high numbers. On a nice weekend, particuarly a holiday weekend, the cars would barely move trying to get on or off the beaches. Our argument was, how could one ever expect to evacuate all those people when they can barely move around just doing something normal, like go swim in the ocean, or walk along the boardwalk. How could you evacuate all the extra people along with everyone who lived there year round? It was not a possible thing to do, the roads were narrow, limited roads coming off the shoreline, having to empty hospitals, the Nursing Homes, schools, and with panic there would be accidents hampering the ability to move traffic along.
There are still signs up on private buildings some 30 years later warning people that No Evacuation is Possible.

Nearly 5 million people live within 50 miles of the plant, including much of metropolitan Boston, and many thousands would suffer from radiation poisoning or cancer. A meltdown is not likely, but not out of the question. In the past two decades, AT LEAST FOUR "NEAR MISS" ACCIDENT SITUATIONS OCCURED AT THE SEABROOK STATION!

That doesn't count the fact the plant was built along an earthquake fault and upon an Indian Burial Ground, the the cooling towers requiring a large amount of water from the ocean daily disrupted the natural eco system along the shore. So the nuclear power plant looms over the marshes like some Monster set down waiting to spew it's ugliness at any time.
I moved away, the lovely little town of my birth, my husband and I packed up our children and moved out of the danger zone. We were constantly hearing of radioactive leaks that were in the so called "safe" zone, and those who dug into things further were finding out there were more leaks that were not in the safe zone. Lies upon lies. I loved that area, but I can never go back to live, and seems everywhere one goes today, there is some new crap they want to stick in someone elses backyard.

As of June 13, 2010 a report came out in the Radiation and Public Health Project that stated as follows:

Official statistics show that the cancer rate in Rockingham County, where the plant is located, is the highest of all 10 New Hampshire counties. Each year, more than 1,500 county residents are diagnosed with the disease. While many factors can raise cancer risk, radiation exposure from Seabrook Station should be considered as one of them.

The Rockingham County cancer rate among children, who are most susceptible to harmful effects of radiation, is the second highest in the state, and 32 percent above the U.S. rate. The county rate of thyroid cancer, which is especially sensitive to radiation, is also second highest, 23 percent above the U.S. rate. These statistics provide further clues that the plant has harmed local residents.

It is was a sad heart that this is being brought up again, I wish I had crossed over to Spirit World first before I had this shoved back in my face again.

As this is a bill that is going before the Appropriations SubCommittee on Thursday, sadly that makes it something that only the U.S. residents can actively send their message on. Nuclear, however, is a world-wide concern and all should be given the opportunity, no matter where in the world they are, to be able to voice their opposition to nuclear plants and the building of additional plants that are already proposed.

Even if you are not in the U.S., please share this message with all your family / friends through any social networks you have so that we can get as many to send letters to their State Representatives before the day's end tomorrow so that they will know we do NOT want any investments or monies allotted for anything nuke!!!

Yes, I received the message and signed the petition. Thank you Suzanne And Gregory for bringing this here. Nuclear power is so stupid, it only makes monetary sense to nuclear power corporations. The corps. get taxpayer money to build the plants and the corps. will be heavliy subsidised with taxpayer monies as they are supplying power to the taxpayer. So very stupid, nuclear power is not cost effective.

During the manufacturing process of the uranium fuel rods for a nuke power plant there is a by product of depleted uranium (DU). Well, the military industrial complex uses this DU in armour piercing projectiles. There is now areas of Iraq that so toxic with DU that human life is in peril. Let alone the gallant troops returning home with no knowledge that they have been exposed to toxic weaponary.

Suzanne is correct, subsidize renewable energy with 25 billion to build a grid and remove the taxpayers from toxic fuels plus the loan will be payed back. The present energy corporations have no intention of paying the us taxpayers back.

It is curious to me how France can do so well w/ nuclear plants, or so we hear, but we can not. The one nearest me had constant construction problems, then never produced what it was supposed to and the Waste? Since we don't enclose it glass but like all of our trash we dump it out of sight - and out of mind. That is till the' Gulf' of Nuke waste happens and it will - Three Mile Island Part 2.

Hey Ancil, we will shine in the dark. There are two nuclear plants just West of Toronto. I am sure there are some leaks. Beside I lived in Poland when Chernobyl happened. The whole Europe got some radiation, Poland got a lot, including nuke rain a couple days after. For a few years all veggies and fruit were not allowed, the same was with milk and most of food products. We were getting food from countries supposedly not touched by this. It is not funny, many of my friends died of cancer, almost all pregnant women lost their babies. This was a horror. And they say Canadians are not allowed to vote? If something bad happens, it will affect Canada also. I was clicking a few times and getting response that I was not included, and software doesn't think - finally I got included.

Nuclear is just not acceptable, just as we are discovering that oil and oil products are not acceptable due to their toxicity. The culture of corporate and government dishonesty that has spread from the advertising industry to become 'spin' makes it certain that safety measures and reporting requirements for any failures or risks will be seriously inaccurate. A serious incident is statistically likely to happen one day, increasing risk with every new station built. When it comes it will be like Chernobyl and kill within a wide radius, with actual immediate deaths in close proximity and longer term fatalities and disabling conditions developing quickly or slowly over an area up to hundreds of miles away. Chernobyl's radioactive cloud drifted over the whole of Europe and a full scale nuclear incident will affect human survival over the whole of the U.S. when it happens there. And who is waiting for a full scale incident? The inevitable safety failures will take lives at times when the plant is still seen as safe. The depleted uranium byproduct can be used as portable Chernobyls by the conscience free forces of the U.S. to export the same effects to any country they choose to use it in. I am still trying to chase down the truth of rumours that depleted uranium has been used in joint U.S./Australia training exercises on our soil. In fact I wonder if it has been used in training or test exercises in the U.S. If so we and you have the problem of radioactive drift and cancer escalation in our own homelands. I oppose any use of nuclear other than minimal unavoidable medical use.

Thank you Gregory and signed, nuclear power plants are inefficient when considering, the creation of the fuel, maintenance of the facility and we remained confused on how to dispose and or the storage of the nuclear waste. The only thing on this planet worst than Nuclear Plants is the facilities build during the Cold War to manufacture Nuclear weapons. Today they remain radio active and contaminates continue to spread and kill.

Nuclear does not make sense for many reasons. To make nuclear energy uses a tremendous amount of energy, mining and transportation -- it won't even be feasible if/when oil runs out/becomes more and more scarce. Uranium mining is terribly "dirty" and destructive for the earth. "Washing" uranium also uses tremendous amounts of fresh water -- which is also becoming scarce and precious.

Of course, nuclear power also produces radiative waste which no one knows how to deal with. The by-products of nuclear energy -- depleted uranium -- are also used to make radioactive weapons. The nuclear energy and weapons industries are intertwined.

Absolutely not a solution to our impending energy crisis. Cheers.

I've said many times that we need to think of alternative fuels for a greener world. The Gulf catastrophe all but drew everyone a picture of the hideousness of fossil fuels, the profits from which are lining the pockets of the filthy rich. Of course, they do not want to think of alternative fuels, and they think even less of a healthy planet or contented inhabitants. They think only of themselves and controlling us, and what I'd like to know is when we're going to rise up en masse and pull the rug out from under their highly polished boots.

Noted and sent letter to Rep. Earl Bleumenauer (D, OR). I am pretty certain we can count on him, given his progressive voting record and focus on global warming. He has described nukes as too risky and expensive and requiring too much water. His website mentions that he is interested in the development of renewable energies such as "wind, wave, solar and geothermal."

Thanks for the petition Gregory, and I hope your move goes well.

Hey, here's a government stat for you (it's in the dead desktop, though): Women who live within a 100 miles of a nuclear power plant have 5 times the rate of breast cancer of women who don't. Seems that tender tissue is more vulnerable to radiation that others. Corporate rule has now gone entirely off the rails, people! They made weaponry out of DU to kill off our troops as well as the designated "enemy" so they won't have to pay benefits afterwards, and so there won't be any populace left worth considering when they move in to take the oil. It was mentioned along with glycophosphate herbicides as only being good for depopulation of an area - or country - in a 1943 DOD memo.

They are determined to steal every bit of wealth they can as fast as possible before the spigot gets turned off, as it must. They don't care HOW much of the earth or the population they harm or destroy. How can we get RID of these parasite??

It's great to see so many rallying in opposition to the USA spending so much on dangerous nukes while investing next to nothing on safe and renewable and non-polluting solar, wind and biomass. I wish time permitted me to cite all of you by name and respond to your questions and comments. The petition is directed at US Congressmen according to where you live, hence they ask for USA zip. Ben and Sharon give good advice to those in other countries, it's not illegal and I don't think unethical and this is a matter that can impact the lives and health of people in other countries, as Europeans know for having had toxic clouds blowing over them for many months from Chernobyl in Russia.
Sarah, if I don't come accross a global petition I'll post one on Care2 in a few days if someone else doesn't message me that they will do so or Suzanne doesn't put one on SEN. Ben, do you want to do it?

The industry knows that this is not the answer – but – follow the money! They are only interested in prolonging the life of their existing plants and mitigating their losses. Hence all the lobbying that they are doing. It’s all about corporate profits.

WASTE:
I am especially concerned with the problems of what to do with the nuclear waste. The waste is extremely dangerous and it has to be carefully looked after for several thousand years (10'000 years according to United States Environmental Protection Agency standards).
“The first reported sea disposal operation of radioactive waste was carried out by the USA in 1946 in the North-East Pacific Ocean and the latest was carried out by the Russian Federation in 1993 in the Japan Sea/East Sea. During the 48 year history of sea disposal, 14 countries have used more than 80 sites to dispose of approximately 85 PBq (1 PBq = 1015 Bq) of radioactive waste “http://www.oceansatlas.org/unatlas/about/physicalandchemicalproperties/radiosp/htm/Geographical.html
http://www.greenpeace.org.uk/media/press-releases/thousands-of-radioactive-waste-barrels-rusting-away-on-the-seabed

SPENT FUEL TRANSPORT:
Transportation of the waste is another grave concern -- it is very risky. There is so much we don’t know and unknown variables that may affect the containment vessels during transport. If just one of these vessels were compromised, the results would be deadly. The transportation routes of spent nuclear fuels are secret. Do they travel near your neighborhood? Have you seen huge tractor trailer convoys that are covered and not identified? Train cars that are covered and not identified?

HEALTH AND SAFETY
Human error and human factors are what is of most concern – accidents do happen and the results would be devastating.
Additionally, the closer to the nuclear power station, the higher the risk of leukemia and cancer. Children are especially vulnerable.

It may be even higher next to a coal powered station
Apparently, people in America living near coal-fired power stations are exposed to higher radiation doses than those living near nuclear power plants. Source: McBride et al. (1978).
Uranium and thorium have concentrations of roughly 1 ppm and 2 ppm respectively in coal.
www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~wilkins/energy/Companion/E20.12.pdf.xpdf

URANIUM IS SCARCE:
Uranium is a scarce resource. The supply of Uranium is expected to last only for the next 30 to 60 years (depending on the actual demand). Nuclear energy is not a renewable or sustainable energy.
The Union of Concerned Scientists is a wonderful resource. See: http://www.ucsusa.org/nuclear_power/
They monitor and work to improve the safety and security provisions at existing nuclear power plants and the performance of the industry's oversight body--the Nuclear Regulatory Commission

Nuclear Power Subsidies Will Shift Financial Risks to Taxpayers (2010)http://www.ucsusa.org/nuclear_power/nuclear_power_and_global_warming/nuclear-power-subsidies.html

This UCS analysis is the first to quantify the most significant nuclear power subsidies proposed in the American Power Act (APA) and the American Clean Energy Leadership Act (ACELA). These massive new subsidies would disadvantage more cost-effective, less risky approaches to curb global warming

Gregory - Thanks for your unending devotion to "The Stuff That REALLY Matters!" I've been spouting this for a long time & as recently as yesterday. If they cut corners on one oil rig operation, fails common sense test corners weren't cut on ALL. Corps. CUT CORNERS, PERIOD! Then bribe greedy poititions & figure heads to get away with it. Meanwhile, our lives & that of Planet Earth hang in the balance. One of the letters I sent asked that the owner of any corp. who builds Nuclear Plants be required to actively live next to it with their entire family to prove they have as much faith in "integrity of safety concerns" as the rest of us are supposed to. Why anyone in their right mind would believe that there is no corner cuts in Nuclear Plant construction is a mystery to me. Maybe we need a remake of "The China Syndrome", or "Silkwood", or something. NOBODY DIES FROM SOLAR POWER! NOBODY DIES FROM CARS ON LITHIUM BATTERIES! NOBODY DIES FROM WIND TURBINES OR THE TURBINES WE CAN USE WAVES TO TURN FOR PRODUCTION OF ELECTRICITY!. People saying Ocean Turbines "Might" disturb the EcoSystem, if you're NOT a shill for Oil Co.s, GET A GRIP! What do you think just happened with OIL, & who the @#*! allowed the toxic oil dispersment product that Europe banned because of it's toxicity to be used off OUR shores by BP without ANY question? We need Centrist Progressives in Congress. Obama does have vision. but zero cooperation & getting all the blame. Way sad.

Connor with respect to both your comment and age, please read more upon this. I have fought front lines on this issue for more years than you have been alive. There is a reason no new nuclear power plants were built in the USA since 1996. There are many reasons why, and it isn't just the power plant itself, but the storage of the waste from it as well.

So just don't take someones word on it, as you state I heard, so I implore you as the youth of today to educate yourself on this issue. Us older ones who fought the earlier battles on this are that, getting older, so it is the youth of today that must pick up the torch. But read and understand what you are dealing with so you can be better prepared to fight the battle.

I am so pleased to see someone your age on here and learning and taking part. It is good to see your interest in such matters. It gives me hope as well, for I'm sort of at a loss as to why the youth of today are not taking to the streets like we did in the past for civil rights, womans rights, VietNam War issue, and the anti Nuke among others. It saddens me in fact as the issues are of great concern today and yet I do not see the throngs of people in an uprising against this corruption at every turn. So thank you from the deepest part of my heart that you are on Care2!

Great to see so much comment. Actually i can now truly say i am TOTALLY against Nuclear Energy if we are talking fission. i can also say, that as dirty a word as SOCIALISM is to US Americans, like NASA, any scientific project such as involving NUCLEAR physics simply cannot be put into the hands of the very people who will do whatever they can to make money for the few irrespective of what it might do to the many. Capitalists do not like such enterprises being run by the people, that is socialism .... they want to make their squillions selling anything and everything that the people can be conned into buying.

They care not for the people, they are profit driven.

However, anybody who does not know that NUCLEAR FUSION just a decade away due mainly to lack of funding is NOT the same as FISSION ... there is no chain reaction, you cannot make a fusion bomb ... it is challenging to keep the reaction happening not to keep it going as is the case with fission ... there is MINIMAL waste which is easily manageable with a short half life .... ironically the only reason it is not up and running is that it cannot be used in warfare!

Yet, it has the possibility of producing all the power needed in the USA with no emissions, no pollution.

And it too needs to be kept out of the hands of the corporations which in countless examples in your country since Britain began the horrible evolution of corporations (like BP).

Haven't you come to the point where it is clear that virtually any corporate endeavour can be shown to be ANTI-SOCIAL - that's the word you need to be concerned about – problem is that McCarthy has you programmed to read “communism” when you see the word!

In the meantime, let's hear from scientists who are the only people who can deal with power generation - even it seems when produced by extracting and burning fossil fuel, let alone any kind of nuclear power .... and above all, they have shown before that they will hold back anything that will diminish the dependence on fossil fuel, whether it be the developed, the developing or the third world!

Make no mistake, it is the scientists who corporations mostly lean on to do whatever they do from developing a new drug to building jet planes, but the decisions are made by suited fools driven by corporate think and throughout industrial history far too frequently flying in the faces of those qualified to know better.

Yes it can also happen with a NASA, but at least the profit motive has been eliminated!

What the USA needs is a government by the people for the people not what you have Government by the people on behalf of the corporations, for the corporations. Consequently, the probability of failure in preventing nuclear fission being funded by the people for the corporations is most likely to happen, until you take back your government from them.

"It is curious to me how France can do so well w/ nuclear plants, or so we hear, but we can not. "
We can of course, Kit. There's a design for a new form of the fuel that encases it in ceramic spheres that would make it MUCH easier to store, and that would stop any leaks. They won't use it - it wouldn't cost as much to make or to operate. Oh, and it would be harder to get the uranium out for DU weaponry - which is an international war crime to use. And as some of us have discovered, there is no "safe forever," which is about how long it would take, method of storage of spent fuel., and with relaxed safety regs, corporations get careless and people die. Not as many as die due to new coal-fired power plants, but they die needlessly regardless.

A lot of people think that somehow all that nuclear radiation gets "transformed" directly into electricity. It doesn't. It's only used to heat water into superheated steam, and like coal or fuel-oil, the steam turns turbines. There are better ways to heat water, dammit! For that matter, there are a number of types of generators that leave no "ash", no waste of any kind, and some are fuelless.

It's interesting to me though, that our food is so poisoned that much of it cannot be sold in the E.U., yet people aren't raising all that much noise about it. Meat especially is toxic as hell, AND it's had most of whatever nutrient value it had destroyed. The additives put into our processed foods are extremely dangerous, and we're talking about over 90%! Fluoride is a know, very toxic substance, yet it's STILL being dumped in our water - and it isn't even pharmaceutical grade fluoride, It's toxic waste from pesticide and uranium refining industries! And if they ever manage to get Codex Alimentarius in as part of our law, first, it loses us a lot of our sovereignty, secondly it mandates that we allow ourselves to be starved to illness, poisoned by yet more rubber-stamped pharmaceuticals, then starved and poisoned to death! It's insane, and people have NO IDEA.

This fight is getting horribly frustrating.

Why should they put so much money and effort into building things that will kill us and tear up mother nature in the end? They shouldn't do stupid things like this! Help the people in need before thinking of investing $25 billion in a nuclear plant. I'm not saying to go absolutely bankrupt in foreign aid, but c'mon! $25 billion for a nuclear plant?! At least put $5000 of that or more to HELP benefit our ONLY home!!!!

'm sorry that I can't sign the petition because I don't support nuclear power stations. However, Chernobyl happened because the scientists removed ALL of the safety features. As long as they are built in and monitored, it won't happen again.

Neil A., as a new member I welcome you. I may be mistaken however have you confused this site with a place to list advertisements. I say this because the topic is preventing the allocation of another $25 billion to build nuclear power plants.
