Speak out Against Negligent Environmental Rulemaking

September 25, 2013

In 2012, opponents of nuclear energy had an unprecedented win in the courts, which forced the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to suspend all licensing of U.S nuclear facilities for at least two years to create a federal court-approved, Environmental Impact Statement on the permanent storage of radioactive nuclear waste. The NRC has opened hearings in select locations and by email to receive comments on the Waste Confidence Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement and Proposed Rule. PSR feels that the Draft EIS is completely inadequate and encourages our members and others to comment at these events. Please contact us if you will attend. See below for a list of upcoming EIS public hearings:

Action Alerts

  • Tell President Obama: Ban Oil Trains

    Tell President Obama and the US DOT to stop oil trains carrying diluted tar sands and fracked shale oil from the Bakken formation—both are more toxic, more explosive, and more carbon-intensive than conventional crude.

  • Tell EPA: Public Health needs a strong Haze Rule

    The EPA must improve the Regional Haze Rule so polluters are held accountable and everyone can experience healthy air at our national parks and wilderness areas.
