Sustainability: Protect our communities from radioactive waste

Sierra ClubSierra Club

For decades, nuclear power reactors all over the country have been able to operate without consideration to what would happen to the highly radioactive waste they produced. This put communities and the environment at risk across the nation. Now, federal courts are requiring the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to study the environmental and health impacts of storage if the plant cannot find a permanent repository. Tell the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to protect our communities and environment from radioactive waste by adopting rules that look at each nuclear plant closely.
