Nuke amdts to climate bill: voted on soon; call your Senators



Debate on the Senate climate change bill (now numbered S. 3036) began
on Monday and has continued through Tuesday. Voting on amendments—
including amendments to give billions more taxpayer dollars to the
nuclear power industry—will begin as early as tomorrow, Wednesday,
June 4.

Your calls to your Senators are needed now more than ever!

Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121

If you already have called your Senators, call again to remind them
that no nuclear amendments are acceptable, and that nuclear power has
no place in the necessary effort to address the climate crisis.
Renewable energy and energy efficiency are faster, cheaper, safer and
cleaner ways to reduce carbon emissions and meet our electricity

And ask your parents, kids, grandchildren, the guy at the gas
station, the woman at the bank, the person in the next cubicle, and
everyone else you know, meet and run into, to call as well. We don’t
have huge budgets and hundreds of lobbyists running all over Capitol
Hill—we rely on people power.

Your calls ARE effective and CAN make a real difference. Call even if
you think your Senators are hopeless—part of what we need to do is
create a real buzz on Capitol Hill that millions of Americans believe
this is an important issue.

The message to your Senators is simple: Vote against any and all
nuclear amendments to the climate bill. The wealthy nuclear industry
does not deserve any more taxpayer dollars. Our resources need to be
spent on energy efficiency, solar and wind power, distributed energy
and smart grids.

Please call now, and please send us a quick e-mail letting us know
you called. As always, let us know if we can help in any way.

Thank you!
