Tell Environmental Protection Agency: Take nuclear support out of proposed carbon rule



Tell EPA: Take nuclear support out of proposed carbon rule

July 28, 2014
As you surely know, the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a new rule to reduce carbon emissions from electric power plants.

As proposed, the rule includes unnecessary and counterproductive support for existing and uneconomic reactors and provides encouragement for construction of new nuclear reactors as well.

These provisions must be removed from the final rule. Your action is essential to achieve this goal.

Please submit your comments to the EPA below, urging it to remove all support for nuclear power from the final version of its Clean Power Plan.
Please feel free to add your own comments and concerns to the sample comment language provided (some additional talking points are available here in pdf format). However, to ensure that the comments will be properly considered, the subject line of the comment submission cannot be changed.

Everyone everywhere can take part in this action. Because your comments may be posted by the EPA online, please do not include your phone number or street address.

There is plenty of time to comment--the deadline is October 16, 2014. We ask that you comment now, and use the remaining time to share this action page with your friends and colleagues, and organize in your communities to encourage the largest possible outpouring of comments on this critical proposal.
