Our Experts on the Threat of Nuclear Energy in the United States

WASHINGTON - The events unfolding in Japan are drawing the attention of Americans to the dangers of nuclear power. Environment America has a long history of fighting the growth of nuclear power in the U.S. Over the years we have run several campaigns against nuclear facilities highlighting the environmental and public health dangers, the massive waste problem, and the costs and risks for taxpayers. In addition to our national efforts, our state groups have led the fight in several places to stop proposed nuclear plants and shut down old plants. Listed below are our foremost nuclear power experts at the federal and state levels.
