Don't be a sucker.

The Senate's version of the energy bill has a provision making you, the taxpayer, responsible for the financial and environmental risks posed by the first new nuclear power plants built in the U.S. for decades.

If expected cost overruns result in loan defaults, you pay.  If something goes wrong at one of the new plants, our dollars made the plant possible.

Don't be a sucker.

Under the guise of fighting global warming, the nuclear power industry and its allies in Congress are pushing a plan to construct the first new nuclear power plants in the U.S. in decades, and the plan's lynchpin is to make taxpayers the unwilling investors.

Congressional energy legislation now being considered could force the public to assume financial risk for billions of dollars in notoriously risky nuclear power plant construction.

In fact, nuclear industry representatives admit that new plants won't get built unless taxpayers underwrite their ventures.

Unfortunately, opposition to this foolish effort has been weak on Capitol Hill and in the media, which is why Friends of the Earth Action is launching an intense campaign to stop this nuclear push in its tracks -- and we need your help to make it happen. 

By filling out the form below, you will be sending a message to your U.S. Senators and Representative urging opposition to the loan guarantees in the Senate energy bill (which is now being merged with the House bill for a final package).  Friends of the Earth Action will also deliver all of your signatures and messages to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi -- the two with the most influence over the final package.
