Read about the bailout at UCS: Nuclear Energy Industry Wish List Would Hurt Taxpayers | Union of Concerned Scientists

. . . the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) . . . released a proposal asking for billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies and radical changes to the federal regulatory process that would shift even more risks and costs from the industry to the public (emphasis mine) . . . . . . .

-------No Nukes! No Nukes! No Nukes! No Nukes! No Nukes!------
  • Nuclear power is 20th century technology with 20th century problems.
  • Nuclear power has never produced the limitless power for pennies touted last century.
  • Proponents of nuclear power may be right in that the technology is now safer, but no one can answer the question: What to do with the spent, radioactive fuel rods?
  • No one wants this radioactive waste in their state or nation.
  • Nuclear power is unsustainable.
  • Why play Russian roulette with the health of our children, ourselves and our nation?
-------No Nukes! No Nukes! No Nukes! No Nukes! No Nukes!------
