Beyond Nuclear is proud to endorse "Unplug Nuclear Power" to mark the second year of the still-unfolding Fukushima nuclear catastrophe.
The Fukushima nuclear disaster of 2011 proved once and for all that nuclear power is too dangerous, too dirty, and too expensive to continue. An entire region of Japan, home to more than 200,000 people is now radioactively contaminated and is uninhabitable, probably forever. We cannot allow this kind of disaster to happen again. Yet, the electric utility companies continue to promote and use nuclear power. They value money over our environment or our personal safety. So, on March 11, thousands of people around the Country and from around the world will join together to teach the utility companies a lesson--we do not need them or nuclear power to survive. By using as little grid-supplied power as possible on that day, we will not only cost the utilities money, we will be declaring our independence from dirty, centralized, unsustainable generation technologies.
