President Obama, Secretary Kerry: Protect Our Communities - Fix Fukushima NOW!

    1. Petition by

      Fukushima Response

After more than 2 years, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is neither contained nor stable. The reactors are in meltdown, a massive amount of nuclear waste sits on top of a badly damaged building, and radioactive water constantly leaks into the ocean whose currents carry it to the West Coast of the United States.

A second earthquake or explosion could release a catastrophic amount of radiation that would travel far beyond Japan’s borders into North America. Children, including the unborn, are especially vulnerable to radiation. Already the health of newborns has been shown to be in jeopardy. 

Japan cannot fix Fukushima alone.

We therefore call on President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to lead the world’s nations in offering technical and financial assistance to Japan to FIX FUKUSHIMA NOW, and save humanity from further nuclear disaster.

      This has got to be breaking international laws.

      They are polluting the ocean with radioactive waste. Please do something to stop this and contain the radiation urgently.

      Fukushima is killing fish, whales, starfish, everything in the ocean, besides the potential of killing the world. This is much more of a hazard than removing dictators or other world problems. The worlds nuclear radiation experts need to get together to help solve the problem. Telco and the Japanese government have shown themselves to make error and have managed the disaster poorly. I live on the west coast. The Pacific Ocean is already showing the effects of radiation on our fishing industry and the oceans animal. Please help Japan to solve this disaster as noon as possible. Eliminating Nuclear power and developing clean, renewable power is the only way we will preserve the world for future generations.

      If something can be done it won't be done until enough people are making the politicians uncomfortable about ignoring it.
