Participate TODAY in National "Call In" Day to Oppose Nuclear Loan Guarantees

Februray 25, 2010

All of us here at Southern Alliance for Clean Energy are very disappointed by President Obama’s recent announcement to award the Southern Company over $8 billion in a taxpayer-funded federal loan guarantee for the proposed two new nuclear

reactors at Plant Vogtle in Georgia along the Savannah River. But we’re told that more loan guarantees are going to be announced, likely at several reactor sites proposed right here in the Southeast, and the Administration and proponents of building new nuclear reactors are working to get even more money pumped into this controversial program. We are working hard to stop this reckless spending of taxpayer money.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Take two easy steps to help us advance a clean, safe energy future here in the Southeast.

  • Participate in the National Call In Day today, February 25, 2010 to demand that your U.S. Senators and Representative in Congress should be looking out for YOUR interests, not the big power companies, by opposing any loan guarantees for new nuclear reactors. Find out more about the controversial nuclear loan guarantee program, including talking points, here. Click here for details on how to participate.
