Brian Wang highlights on his blog a petition supporting nuclear power that is being submitted through the White House’s “We the People” program. This government initiative provides U.S. citizens a means to petition the government.
The pro-nuclear petition needs 5,000 signatures by 10/23 to be accepted by the Obama Administration for consideration.
The petition states,
We petition the Obama Administration to:
Educate the Public Regarding Nuclear Power.
This petition is a response to the “End taxpayer subsidies for new nuclear reactors” petition.
Due to the manufactured controversy that is the nuclear reactor meltdown in Fukushima, Japan, perpetuated by a scientifically illiterate news media, the public is unnecessarily hostile to nuclear power as an energy source.
To date nobody has died from the accident and Fukushima, and nuclear power has the lowest per Terra-watt hour death toll of any energy source known to man:
The Obama administration should take better strides to educate the public regarding this important energy source.
Go to the “We the People” website and take action.
