End taxpayer subsidies for new nuclear reactors

The Fukushima nuclear disaster has forever destroyed the myth that nuclear power is clean or green: clean energy plants do not explode and release toxic radiation across the globe. That this accident occurred in a highly-industrialized country using U.S.-supplied technology only underscores the inherent danger of nuclear power.

For the past two years, you have requested that Congress increase the funds available for loans for new nuclear reactor construction by $36 Billion. Congress has not done so.

We ask you now to end taxpayer support for new nuclear reactors. Specifically, we ask you not to request any additional funds for the Department of Energy’s nuclear loan guarantee program, nor for the research and development of new nuclear reactors, in the FY 2013 budget and future budgets.
