A Case Against Nuclear Energy

With the recent devastation caused by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11th and the nuclear disaster at the atomic energy plants caused by those events we must rethink our energy strategies.

We in the Bronx are the closest to a nuclear power plant, (Indian Point in Westchester is just 24 miles to our north) and frankly that is completely unacceptable to be in such close proximity to NYC.

Reports are now coming in that the food supply in Japan is now contaminated in the affected areas. 

Can we afford the same thing at Indian Point, so close to the city and our water supply?  Did you know that a FAULT LINE is directly underneath a reactor at Indian Point? 

Now you know so it's time we begin writing our local officials that this plant needs to shut down!
