Tell Secretary of State Kerry: stop blocking new international nuclear safety rules
The U.S. government, led by the State Department, is trying to block a new post-Fukushima nuclear safety approach proposed by European nations from taking effect. Apparently the government fears that U.S. reactors would be required to make upgrades that the nuclear utilities here don't want to pay for. The U.S. ally in this effort? Russia--not exactly a nuclear safety leader!
Rather than working to prevent new nuclear safety rules, the U.S. should both actively welcome them and follow the lead of our European ally Germany in acting to end the use of nuclear power entirely--replacing it with clean energy resources. If Germany, a major industrialized nation, can do it, so can we.
Make your voice count. Sign the petition below; we will deliver it to the State Department and NRC in January, well before a scheduled mid-February international meeting on this issue.
