We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis. There is no excuse for not acting. All the resources we can muster must be focused on the fuel pool at Fukushima Unit 4.
The United States is not bombing Syria.
Let’s savor that again: for the moment at least, the United States is not bombing Syria. That alone qualifies as an unprecedented victory for the SuperPower of Peace – the global movement to end war, win social justice and salvage our ecological survival.
Grassroots citizen activism and the No Nukes movement have won another great victory with Entergy’s announcement that the Vermont Yankee reactor will shut down.
It is closing only because of the fierce non-violent determination of countless activists over the decade who value life and understand the horrible destructive power of atomic energy, as is now being demonstrated so destructively at Fukushima.
As the horror show at Fukushima worsens by the day, our opposition to atomic energy becomes ever more vital. Now more than ever, we advocate a total “solartopian” shift to renewables for our planet’s energy supply.
That transition has become even more essential as the nightmare at Fukushima deepens.
