As you probably know by now, the economic stimulus package approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee includes up to $50 Billion in new taxpayer loan guarantees that can be used for construction of new nuclear reactors and “clean coal” plants (an oxymoron if there ever was one…). We need to tell the Senate that we’re not willing to risk our money on nuclear power, that we don’t want more radioactive waste in our communities, and that we do want Congress to support safer, cleaner and cheaper energy resources like solar, wind and energy efficiency.
