The nuclear industry is asking Congress to provide taxpayer guarantees of up to $100 billion in loans to finance the construction of new nuclear power plants. Tell your senators and representative to reject this greedy industry power play.

More nuclear power is the last thing we need in the hand and minds of fools in industry and government.

Instead Congress should be looking at Wind and Solar power.

I know I'll get some flak for this, but I know nuclear power is safe (non-explosive). I worked in the field for over 9yrs. YES i do know there is a waste problem. I write this because some ppl feel our gov't handles nuclear power foolishly. They forget the US Navy has been using safely since 1962, and each vessle and crew is tested every 6 months, the waste is strictly controlled. HOWEVER, knowing how the Navy safely handles it's nuclear program, I was worried about private industry because they only worry about their budget, and less about safety. But the NRC, does monitor them, and by design light water reactors are safe. It's the waste that is the problem.

I guess my point is that if the private industry was run like the Navy's then there wouldn't be much of a problem.

There is enough money for Wind, Solar, Tidal, Algae, and Nuclear, if we wanted to. How much are we wasting in Iraq? Not to mention how much we are spending there, but how much of it is wasted and misappropriated?
