Tell the Energy Department That You Oppose Reprocessing Radioactive Waste!

Announced by the Bush Administration in February 2006, the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) is a sweeping proposal to restart nuclear waste reprocessing in the United States. Reprocessing—incorrectly called “recycling” by the Energy Department—is expensive and polluting, and poses a serious risk to U.S. national security and global efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.

The Energy Department, which is responsible for implementing GNEP, is required to request comments from the public about what issues should be part of its analysis of the program. Use the sample letter below to tell the Energy Department why it should abandon the dangerous and polluting GNEP program.
