Don't Nuke the Budget!
America's budget crisis has the world economy at the brink. Social Security, Medicare, aid for needy children, environmental protection and much more are being chopped. Yet Congress and the White House may still want to use our money for fund atomic power.

Fukushima Spews, Los Alamos Burns, Vermont Rages and We’ve Almost Lost Nebraska
Humankind is now threatened by the simultaneous implosion, explosion, incineration, courtroom contempt and drowning of its most lethal industry. We know only two things for certain: worse is yet to come, and those in charge are lying about it---at least to the extent of what they actually know, which is nowhere near enough. Indeed, the assurances from the nuke power industry continue to flow like the floodwaters now swamping the Missouri Valley heartland.

Says Prime Minister Naoto Kan: "We need to start from scratch… and do more to promote renewables." Wind power alone could--and now probably will--replace 40 nukes in Japan.

"Safe" Radiation is a Lethal Three Mile Island Lie
There is no safe dose of radiation. We do not x-ray pregnant women. Any detectable fallout can kill. With erratic radiation spikes, major air and water emissions and at least three reactors and waste pools in serious danger at Fukushima, we must prepare for the worst.

An 8.9 Quake Could Have Irradiated the Entire US
Had the massive 8.9 Richter-scale earthquake that has just savaged Japan hit off the California coast, it could have ripped apart at least four coastal reactors and sent a lethal cloud of radiation across the entire United States .

Fighting the 5 Fascisms in Wisconsin and Ohio
