In mid December more than 500 organizations from the U.S. and abroad, including some of the world’s largest and most influential environmental organizations, signed a joint statement explicitly rejecting “the construction of new nuclear reactors as a means of addressing the climate crisis.”
Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth International, Sierra Club, Clean Water Action, and Rainforest Action Network are a few of the many environmental groups that have signed on. Along with them were major peace groups like Code Pink, Peace Action, and Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. In addition were hundreds of grassroots environmental, sustainable energy, religious, peace and other groups, and businesses large and small. All the groups were from 46 states and 38 countries on six continents. 5,900 individuals also have signed the statement, and more are signing every day.
