As a result of the massive earthquake that rocked Japan in March, the Japanese people will suffer grave human, environmental, and economic costs for years to come. They are facing the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl. And the truth is, it could happen in the United States at any moment.
The Japanese nuclear crisis has exposed some of the risks and vulnerabilities of nuclear power and the importance of making sure our nation's 104 nuclear power reactors are safer than they are today.
Please tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that it must make every effort to prevent such a disaster in the United States and take steps to make nuclear power in this country safer.
