Stop the Cuomo Tax!

Stop the Cuomo Tax!

But Governor Cuomo’s outrageous tax on New Yorkers’ electric bills to bail out a multi-billion dollar Illinois corporation can be stopped if we can get the Department of Public Service to reject the proposed sale of the FitzPatrick nuclear plant to Exelon.

We have an opportunity right now to put an end to the governor’s misguided plan by getting the Public Service Commission to reject Exelon’s purchase. Can you take just a few minutes to send a message to the Public Service Commission urging them to take a stand against this deal?

Your comment will be part of the public record of opposition to this nuclear bailout scheme that threatens to cost hard working New Yorkers billions of dollars and delay our progress toward a truly green energy future. If enough New Yorkers speak out, we can win this fight.

Thanks for all you do,

Stop the Nuclear Bailout Rally

Stop the Nuclear Bailout Rally

We know Governor Cuomo’s plan to tax New Yorkers’ utility bills to bail out old, unsafe, unprofitable nuclear plants is a big mistake. If the governor gets his way, he’ll take $7.6 billion from hard working New Yorkers and hand it over to subsidize dangerous, inefficient nuclear plants owned by a wealthy Chicago-based corporation. We can’t let that happen.

Join us at Thursday, October 27th at noon outside Governor Cuomo’s Midtown office at 633 3rd Avenue to send a strong message against the bailout. Together, we can stop the Cuomo Tax, block the nuclear bailout, and start moving to a truly green renewable energy future. But it’s going to take all of us! Join us Thursday October 27th at noon!

Stop the Cuomo Tax!

New Yorkers know that Governor Cuomo’s plan to bail out old, unprofitable nuclear plants is a big mistake. If the governor gets his way, he’ll take $7.6 billion from hard working New Yorkers and hand it over to a highly profitable Chicago nuclear company. We should be investing in sustainable energy, not handing out giant subsidies for aging, unsafe nuclear plants.

You can help change the governor’s mind with a quick 30-second phone call to let his office know where you stand. It’s simple. Just follow these instructions:

  1. Call 866-772-3843
  2. Tell Governor Cuomo’s office your name and where you live, then say:
    “As a constituent, I oppose the Cuomo tax on New Yorkers’ utility bills and urge Governor Cuomo to stop his proposed $7.6 billion bailout of unprofitable nuclear plants. His mistaken plan would take billions of dollars out of New Yorkers’ pockets to subsidize aging, unsafe, nuclear plants owned by a highly profitable Chicago-based company. Instead, Governor Cuomo should invest in energy efficiency and truly clean renewable alternatives like solar and wind while saving consumers money.”

Governor Cuomo wants to increase our electric bills to bail out old, unprofitable nuclear power plants. The tax will cost hard working New Yorkers nearly $8 billion dollars.

Nuclear Power Is a Moral, Public Health and Public Safety Issue,
a Crime Against Humanity, All Living Creatures, and Our One and Only Home – Planet Earth

The purpose of this paper is to urge you to include a plank in the Democratic Party Platform to close all nuclear power plants now, not to build any new ones, not to allocate money in bills for research for new nuclear technology, new kinds of “safer” nuclear power plants and to once and for all acknowledge that nuclear power is not clean, green, renewable. To exclude such a plank puts the Democratic Party on the side of the nuclear industry and against We the People. We absolutely do not need nuclear power to save the climate, now or ever. … Read More

NYC Actions to Shut Indian Point

PLEASE SIGN THESE PETITIONS NOW AND THEN SHARE THEM WIDELY

NYC actions
Citizens Demand To Close
Indian Point Nuclear Plant
-via Moveon.org

We, residents of the Hudson Valley and the metropolitan New York and New Jersey areas, are demanding that the licensing renewals for the Indian Point nuclear power plant for 2013 and 2015 be denied, and that the plant is closed down as soon as possible. Studies have shown that with upgrades in the New York State power grid, with energy efficiency and conservation measures, and investment in renewable sources, Indian Point’s capacity can be replaced with minimal cost to consumers.

Close the Indian Point
Nuclear Power Plant
-via Credo

To: Members of Congress: Senator Barbara Boxer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Chuck Schumer, Senator Ron Wyden, Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Eliot Engel, Representative Nita Lowey, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney.

Stop the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from relicensing the Indian Point nuclear reactors 2 and 3.
