Petition to end subsidies to nuclear companies
So I've decided I'm against nuclear energy. It is not necessary (see my renewable energy post) and when shit goes wrong, shit goes terribly wrong as we are witnessing now. It's disconcerting to be pregnant and to be told that the rain in my town is radioactive (and it will be raining for two weeks), and that the milk is now getting contaminated, not to mention the veggies.... Here is a petition to ask Obama to "discontinue taxpayer subsidies, including $36 billion in loan guarantees, for the nuclear industry." Feel free to sign if you are so inclined.
