• We stress the role of public conscience in the furthering of the principles of humanity.

2. NO to the Otero Borehole!

We support the community living in rural Southeast Otero County New Mexico, the community impacted by the proposed borehole project. This area includes the Otero Mesa, an area of wild and beautiful grassland. Adjacent to the East is the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The land south of Pinon, NM is wild and beautiful. Many residents can trace their family's history in the area back to the 1800s. They work hard to make a living and pay taxes.
The Department of Energy (DOE) plans to drill multiple deep boreholes, three miles into the earths crust in this community. DOE claims these boreholes will test their suitability for deep borehole nuclear waste disposal. They further claim that no radioactive waste will be dumped in the these test holes. They DO NOT promise that similar holes nearby won't be drilled and used for nuclear waste if that first hole looks good. That is clearly their intention. To quote the DOE:
“The Department is particularly interested in evaluating whether deep boreholes might offer a safe and practical alternative to mined geologic repositories for smaller forms of nuclear waste.”
DOE proposes to spend $30,000,000 for two holes. These will be to test out the concept of nuclear waste disposal and will show if the rock is suitable for nuclear waste. Once things are found okay we are supposed to believe that DOE will then go elsewhere and drill another $30,000,000 "test" hole to see if the rock is good there and then dump radioactive waste there?

Really? Does that seem reasonable?

Here is what actually is going on. DOE will drill and test. If things are good they will buy or take nearby land (eminent domain if necessary) and drill a field of boreholes for a nuclear waste dump. One Sandia Lab plan shows about 950 boreholes are likely.

This saves DOE a cool $30,000,000 and more important it saves them many years time. A new borehole elsewhere will take years to permit and bring in, and then it might turn out to be bad rock!

3. Say NO to the borehole!

We stand together in protest of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Plan for a Defense Waste Repository.

Nara Visa, NM, a small tight knit agricultural community is the location of a proposed site for borehole testing. DOE contractor, ENERCON, has been deceptive in gaining entrance into this community; claiming community buy-in when there is overwhelming proof to the contrary. In fact, the opposition is strong against their proposal.

After reading the DOE’s draft plan, and assessing our community’s situation, it is clear to us that the ‘consent-based siting process’ regarded by the DOE as a ‘critical element’ (DWR 2016, p.v) in siting potential host communities has been completely disregarded.

The deception by DOE contractors, coupled with the highly probable long-term implications of these test boreholes leave no doubt in our minds. We are unequivocally opposed to the test borehole project sited for Quay County, NM.

4. Stop deep borehole drilling

Our goal is to preserve the natural resources of Pierce County and the State of North Dakota, and protect the lives and well being of the residents of Pierce County and the State of North Dakota by stopping deep borehole drilling to explore the possibility of storing spent nuclear waste.

Please sign if you are a North Dakota resident age 18 or older.

5. Vote Against the Iranian Nuclear Deal

The Iranian nuclear deal will assure that Iran will acquire an arsenal of nuclear weapons and will assure a nuclear war in the Middle East.

6. Free Iranian Student Hesam-Aldin Farzizadeh, Sentenced To Death For Apostasy

Hesam-Aldin Farzizadeh, an Expelled student in the field of nuclear physics of Mohaghegh University in the city of Ardebil, Iran was reportedly sentenced to death because of writings of his which were critical of Islam. Illegally, he is being denied access to a lawyer.

Hesam, 22, was charged with apostasy, propaganda for "seductive faiths" and blasphemy by the court according to the news received by VOCIR.

Security forces arrested him on 21 Nov 2013 and transferred to the prison of Meshkin Shahr city. The young writer suffers from depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

He is kept in the non-political ward among addicts and gangs because there is no special ward for the prisoners of conscience. The religious critic had frequently begun hunger strikes that led him to lose weight as well.

He has allegedly been accepted to Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.

7. More Nuclear Power is NOT the Answer to the Climate Crisis

We believe that expanding the role of nuclear power may threaten the planet as surely as the global warming you seek to mitigate.

Fukushima alone demonstrates the risks of nuclear meltdowns even in a society based on science and advanced technology. The one hundreds plants in our country are terrorist targets.

There are no solutions in sight to nuclear waste disposal. The timelines for bringing new nuclear plants online exceed the UN's call for rapid decarbonization. The estimated costs are staggering.

8. Please help to stop the discharges of radioactivity into the environment and atmosphere of the Blackwater Estuary in Essex

If you do not know about this it is because there has been no proper public consultation. The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and Magnox are proposing to start radioactive discharges at the old Bradwell nuclear power station into the Blackwater Estuary and into the atmosphere, once a day for 18 months.


The discharges will result from a new, untested and accelerated process to dissolve fuel element debris (FED), which is an intermediate-level radioactive waste, in order to reduce its volume. This is unnecessary as there are other ways of storing this waste. BANNG considers these discharges are an offence to the environment. Many serious issues have been raised by this proposal and they have not been sufficiently addressed by the agencies. BANNG has asked the NDA and Magnox to halt the discharges and for an independent assessment of the impacts to be undertaken.

12 years after the cessation of nuclear operations at Bradwell and with decommissioning, the communities of the Blackwater expected that the days of radioactive discharges into their environment were over.

9. Stop The Great Lakes Nuclear Dump

Ontario Power Generation (OPG), a multi-billion dollar power generation company, is seeking approval to build a nuclear waste dump (a Deep Geological Repository or DGR)
1 km from the shores of Lake Huron.

The Dump will extend underground to approximately 400 meters below the lake level. Some of this nuclear waste remains toxic and lethal for over 100,000 years.

On August 21, 2017, Minister McKenna announced her decision would be delayed pending receipt of additional information from the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and OPG.

This dump puts at risk the fresh water of the GREAT LAKES, relied upon by 40 million people in two countries.

Any risk of buried nuclear waste entering the largest body of fresh water in the world is too great a risk to take, and need not be taken.

We can and must deliver an overwhelming wave of opposition to OPG's plan. Tell Minister McKenna and the Canadian federal government to stand up for the protection of the Great Lakes.

Tell your friends on Facebook, Twitter and email.

10. Remove Pakistan's name from ABC show, Last Resort

The "Last Resort" show is about the renegade crew of a United States Navy Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine, the fictional USS Colorado (SSBN-753), that defies an order to launch nuclear missiles towards Pakistan, a decision that cost the previous commanding officer his job when he refused to follow similar orders without an explanation or confirmation.

When his replacement also questions the same orders, the vessel is fired upon without warning and the crew are left for dead. Realizing that they have been declared enemies of their own country, they set up camp on the fictional island of Sainte Marina, and declare themselves a sovereign nation with nuclear capability.

At the same time, the crew must find a way to prove their innocence and find out who set them up so that they can return home to America.

11. Stop restarting nuclear power plants

Many people lost their lives after being exposed to massive radiation from the explosion of Fukushima nuclear power plant.

Many people took their own lives after losing hope of living on their land because it was too contaminated by radiation.

Many people are still suffering from deteriorating health caused by radiation still being dispersed from the plants.

Many people have great concerns about the future of their precious children.

But in front of the large number of protestant, the Japanese government hastily decided to restart the nuclear power plant despite failing to fix the broken nuclear safety system that led to the original meltdown.

The government hasn't explained about the cause of the disaster and hasn't made an apology to the public.

12. NO to Nuclear Waste stored at Lucas Heights

Please download and read our pamphlet, and send it to your family and friends -

In the 1990’s, the nuclear waste from Lucas Heights was sent to France for re-processing. Under contracts signed by the Australian Government in the 90’s, Australia is obliged to take back its waste, from France and the UK by the end of 2015. Approximately 13.2 cubic metres of intermediate nuclear waste will be stored in a $30 million purpose-built facility at Lucas Heights for a maximum of 5 years.

This decision of such importance has managed to fall under the radar and as far away from the public eye as possible.

According to David Sweeny of The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), “just
because the waste has been reprocessed, doesn’t mean it is safe.” He is quoted as saying that it is “a contaminated cocktail of various radioactive elements and isotopes and some of these last for many thousands of years and pose a very significant radiology hazard and human health hazard.”

Sydney residents do not feel safe with this radioactive waste being stored within close proximity to their homes. It appears to be a possible terrorist target or a national disaster waiting to happen.

Local residents are unaware as to what was planned for Lucas Heights and the majority have no idea what is going on. Once informed there response is "how do we go about stopping this and what can I do to help". This does not appear to be a well informed community in favor of Lucas Heights being used as a nuclear waste storage facility.

Another issue is how temporary is temporary? The Federal Government has had 30 years to decide where to store this radioactive waste and to date the best
they can come up with is a five year plan for it to be stored at Lucas Heights. ANSTO insists that the facility will only provide “interim” storage for the waste however this is extremely debatable.

It appears that the Federal Government is applying a quick fix solution to an extremely important national issue. To date they have been unable to establish the
location of where the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility will be, so who’s to say they will in 7 years time.

Why put it in a densely populated area like Lucas Heights which is within a 30 km radius of Sydney’s CBD, just because it is the easiest and cheapest solution for the interim. Why aren’t the Government seeking a viable long term solution now, they still have until the end of 2015. Australia is one of the world’s most geologically stable continents with many sparsely populated locations that would be perfect sites for the storage of radioactive waste.

The Australian Government has a responsibility to the next generation to find a viable solution now.

13. Stop the Koodankulam Project

This particular koodankulam project is very harmful to lives.

There are a lot of alternative ways to get power. But the government goes after the nuclear. It has to be stopped.

14. Lets Invest in Safe, Cost Effective Nuclear Power: LFTRs

Let's Invest in Safe, Cost Effective Nuclear Power: LFTRs

LFTRs (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors) are safer, cheaper, and more efficient than reactors we use now, and we have a huge supply of thorium in Canada. In fact, every country in the world has lots of easily accessible thorium since it is everywhere in the earth's crust, but we have some of the richest and largest deposits in the world. If we choose to power the world with thorium, all countries in the world will have enough energy to meet all their needs for thousands of years.

LFTRs can be the source of all our existing electrical power, plus the "additional" electrical power we will need for electric vehicles. We can also use LFTRs to provide the heat and steam to extract oil from the Alberta Tarsands, which means much less CO2 is produced to extract useful oil. This would dramatically reduce the CO2 emitted during the production of tarsands oil, making it equivalent to other liquid oil extracted from conventional oil wells.

Please help raise awareness of LFTRs, by signing this petition which will be sent to Member of Parliament, and other relevant politicians.

Let's ensure our politicians know about LFTRs and the opportunity they present. By signing this petition, we can ask our politicians how Canada will research, develop, and deploy reactors to use this attractive energy source.

15. Nuclear Pledge

I am opposed to the building of new nuclear power stations in the UK under any form of public subsidy.

New nuclear power stations have been justified on the basis that they are the best way for the UK to:

  • reduce its emissions of 'greenhouse gases' that cause climate change;
  • close the impending 'energy gap' caused by the closure of existing nuclear and coal power stations;
  • ensure national energy security in the decades ahead.

These arguments are wrong, for the following reasons:

  1. Despite the trillions of dollars invested in nuclear power, and the boundless optimism of nuclear advocates, nuclear power is very expensive. Nuclear power station construction always over-runs on both time and cost estimates, sometimes many times over.

  2. Renewables such as wind and solar electricity are getting cheaper all the time, and costs will continue to fall for many years to come as major industrial countries - including Germany, Japan, China and USA - make huge investments in renewables to secure their energy futures. Any nuclear power stations the UK begins to build now will be made obsolete by advances in renewable technologies, long before they are complete in ten or more years time.

  3. Emissions reductions can best be secured by investing in renewable energy; energy efficiency; microgeneration; energy storage; 'smart grid' / responsive demand technologies; and a trans-continental 'supergrid' stretching from North Africa to the Arctic Circle.

  4. The predicted deficit in the UK's electricity supply can be met, and more, by accelerated investment in renewable energy and microgeneration, and by raising the efficiency of our homes, factories and offices.

  5. A green electricity strategy based on renewables, microgeneration and demand reduction is free of any serious risks or long term liabilities. Nuclear power, by contrast, is associated with many serious hazards:

    • radioactive emissions at every stage of the nuclear life cycle;
    • nuclear waste that remains dangerous for over 100,000 years;
    • the risk of severe nuclear accidents, like Chernobyl and Fukushima, costing hundreds of billions of pounds and rendering thousands of square kilometres uninhabitable;
    • the danger that nuclear power stations and other nuclear facilities will be terrorist targets;
    • the production of plutonium for nuclear bombs.

    The open-market insurance cost against nuclear accidents alone is estimated to be worth roughly the entire UK retail electricity price of about 12p per kWh!

  6. The world contains limited resources of energetically viable uranium deposits, and these will quickly run out in the event of a widespread scramble for nuclear power. No viable uranium deposits exist in the UK.

  7. Raising energy efficiency will reduce our dependency on all energy imports. Renewable electricity depends only on wind, wave, tide and sunshine. None of these need to be imported, and they are immune from the vagaries of fuel and energy markets. The UK has the greatest renewable energy potential of any country in Europe, but we have done little to develop it.

I therefore believe that to commit enormous sums of public money to nuclear power - as Government spending, electricity surcharge, carbon subsidy, 'free' public liability insurance, or other means - is profoundly wrong, misguided, reckless and against the public interest.

16. No subsidies for the nuclear industry!

The disaster at Japan's nuclear power plant highlights the inherent dangers of nuclear power, we should be phasing it out in favor of clean energy like wind and solar and energy efficiency. And yet President Obama says he still wants to spend $36 billion of our tax dollars to subsidize the nuclear industry so it can build more nuclear plants here in the United States.

Americans don't want their money going to dangerous and dirty energy sources; according to a recent poll, 74% of Americans oppose nuclear subsidies.

Of course, nuclear industry lobbyists are doing everything they can right now to make sure our members of Congress don't listen to the American people. So we need to make sure they know we don't want our tax dollars wasted on new nuclear plants that would threaten more communities here in the United States.

Send an urgent message to the President and your members of Congress TODAY and tell them that there is no place for taxpayer giveaways to the nuclear industry in the budget and that now is the time to invest in technology that uses clean and unlimited energy sources like the sun and wind.

17. pour une transparence totale sur la radioactivité de l’air que nous respirons

Plus de 60 laboratoires d’analyse équipés de détecteurs de très haute précision sont répartis sur l’ensemble de notre planète et contrôlent quotidiennement la radioactivité de l’air. Leur mission : rechercher les très faibles quantités de produits radioactifs qui pourraient indiquer qu’un essai nucléaire a été effectué en violation du Traité d’Interdiction Complète des Essais Nucléaires (TICEN).

Les résultats de ces analyses permettraient de suivre, jour après jour, et depuis le 12 mars 2011, l’avancée des masses d’air contaminé par les rejets radioactifs de la centrale nucléaire de FUKUSHIMA DAIICHII. C’est impossible car les données sont confisquées par les Etats. Les résultats sont transmis à des organismes officiels qu’ils sélectionnent et qui sont tenus de ne rien divulguer. Le réseau international de mesure est financé par de l’argent public.

Les populations ont droit à cette information. Tous les chiffres doivent être publiés et non pas quelques chiffres soigneusement choisis par les autorités.

18. Petition for Safe Energy

Dear Safe Energy Advocate,

We, the undersigned safe energy advocates, have been
speaking out about the risks and dangers posed by nuclear
power for years – many since before the 1986 Chornobyl
and 1979 Three Mile Island accidents as well as the
hundreds of other radioactive releases, unplanned shut-
downs, and other mishaps that have continuously plagued
both the U.S. and the international nuclear industries since
their founding.

While nuclear power’s unacceptable safety, environmental,
public health, economic, and national security risks should
have been self-evident long before now, the latest
unfolding nuclear disaster in Japan once again underscores
the following:

Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all
potential “acts of God.”

Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all
instances of “human error.”

Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all types
of “mechanical malfunction.”

Nuclear plants can never be designed to withstand all
forms of “terrorist attack.”

There is no such thing as “safe” nuclear power.

There is no such thing as “clean” nuclear power.

There is no such thing as “cheap” nuclear power.

Consequently, all proposed governmental financial and
regulatory incentives for new nuclear plant construction -
including loan guarantees, accelerated licensing, and
inclusion in a “clean energy standard” - should be rejected,
and no new reactors should be built.

Existing nuclear reactors should be phased out as rapidly as
possible, beginning with the oldest and/or most unsafe,
and no presently-licensed reactors should have their
operating lives extended.

Safety standards for existing reactors should be
substantially tightened while they continue to operate and
federal nuclear funding should be redirected to the orderly
phase-out of those reactors as well as the safe
decommissioning of closed reactors and disposal of
radioactive waste.

National energy policy and funding should be refocused on
greatly improved energy efficiency and the rapid
deployment of renewable energy sources which are far
cleaner, safer, and cheaper than nuclear power.

Sincerely, Mark R. Bielby BA.s.d.s

19. STOP Nuclear Power Plants in Earthquake/Tsunami Reachable Areas

In the whole Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Romania, Spain, USA (specially California) etc., there are many nuclear energy power plants under the huge risks of earthquakes and/or tsunamis.

The accident of Fukushima [Mar.11,2011], Japan, as well as the former accident of Kashiwazaki (Niigata) [July 16,2007], Japan, caused by earthquakes shows the total incompatibility of nuclear energy plant in the area where the earthquake and/or tsunami are reachable.

Thus, we shall ban the operation of nuclear power plant in such area immediately, as the first step of total prohibition of nuclear power plants in this planet.

In Japanese:





20. Support Non Nuclear Energy

Responsible persons should unite against this form of mass annihilation. There are several ways of generating energy, infinitely safer and more sustainable. Parliament Civiol World Environment will be meeting at their first meeting in Brazil to discuss and mobilize international public opinion against nuclear power plants.

Participate, vote in favor of the petition. Make your vote represents an opposition to interessesdaqueles who wish to destroy humanity.


21. Help Japan begin Recovery

I know that not everyone has enough extra funds to make a significant donation on their own, but if we all take our small amounts and put them together, then perhaps we have a chance to make a real difference. We have to start thinking about the entire world as a whole and people as humans all living together in it in stead of separating feelings, funds and assistance by geographical location. HELP NOW!!!

A massive 8.9/9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific Ocean nearby Northeastern Japan at around 2:46pm on March 11 (JST) causing damage with blackouts, fire and tsunami.

The earthquake and tsunami that has struck Japan has left a trial of devastation and sparked fears of a nuclear disaster.

Sign the petition below calling on the government in The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to cease all procedures and agreements currently in force and for the future for the extraction of the radioactive and carcinogenic uranium from Jordanian territory. The extraction can be a source of radioactive uranium dust in addition to radon carcinogens which threaten our air and our breathing.

I request not to build and cancellation of the planned nuclear power plant, which has been proven by the recent tragedy in Japan, to be a threat to people wherever they are in Jordan. We also call upon our government to go to convert all of these projects to renewable energy projects from wind or sun.

23. Youth Against New Darlington Nuclear Plant

This spring, a panel will decide whether to approve construction of a new nuclear power plant at Darlington, Ontario (east of Toronto).

Nuclear power plants are dirty, risky and expensive – and not necessary to meet Ontario’s electricity needs.

Help stop this new nuclear plant by signing this petition and sharing it with other youth (age 20 and under).

Youth will deliver the petition to the Darlington Joint Panel on Friday, April 8. Join us:

24. Say 'Yes' to Dungeness

This petition calls for the UK Government to support the building of a new nuclear power station at Dungeness in Kent, alongside the existing Dungeness A and B power stations.

Dungeness B station puts around £20 million a year into the local economy, an almost irreplaceable level of investment.

The Secretary of State for Energy Chris Huhne, has stated that the preferred sites for new nuclear power stations would be alongside existing sites and where there is strong local support; Dungeness would certainly pass both of these tests. So why have we not yet been given the go ahead.? It is simply because of the objection of Natural England that to allow a development within the Dungeness to Pett Level Special Protected Area would contravene the EU Habitats Directive. They are putting the welfare of the vegetated shingle above everyone else. Natural England have taken this view despite the fact that the development site is on land largely disturbed by the building of the existing nuclear stations, and is less that 1% of the entire protected area. I do not believe that this development could be said to disturb the integrity of the whole site, something that the regulations require them to consider. In other countries development has been allowed in such protected areas; one example of which was the German government’s support for the expansion of the airport at Baden-Baden.

Natural England have also recently announced that they would like to expand the special protected area around Dungeness by a further 2,500 hectares. Given the development site for the new power station is only around 50 hectares if this expansion of the protected area were to go ahead, that would surely be an adequate compensation.

At a time when the country is looking for investment from the private sector and overseas into our economy, and we need to find new sources of clean and readily available energy, a new power station at Dungeness would also seem to be in the national interest. It’s proximity to London and important location within the South East means that transmission costs for the station will be lower than from other sites. Industry experts also believe that a new power station at Dungeness could be one of the first built and supplying energy. For the long term success of our local economy, and the energy needs of our country taking forward the proposal for a new power station is the right thing to do.
So I hope you will join with me, and say ‘yes to Dungeness’.

Damian Collins, Member of Parliament for Folkestone and Hythe.

25. Petition for the UK Borders Agency to reverse its decision on blocking VISAS and charitable holidays for the child victims of the Chernobyl disaster

We the undersigned hereby petition Damian Green MP and head of the UK Borders Agency to reverse the UKBA decision which needlessly blocks VISAS and charitable holidays for children suffering from the effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

26. Not in our name - Batman voters against a nuclear waste dump

Minister for Energy and Resources and member for Batman, Martin Ferguson, is planning to establish a nuclear waste dump on Aboriginal land in the Northern Territory.

Ferguson’s targeted site, at Muckaty Station, 120 kilometres north of Tennant Creek, is located on a fault-line and experiences frequent earthquakes. Many traditional owners of the site are opposed to Ferguson’s proposal. They have been trying to meet with Mr Ferguson for 18 months, but he has refused their requests to meet.

Mr Ferguson's National Radioactive Waste Management laws allow him to override Aboriginal heritage laws, environmental protection laws, and all state/territory laws in order to impose the nuclear waste dump. The proposed dump has been deemed unnecessary by a range of organisations including the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency , the Australian Nuclear Association, and Mr Ferguson’s own Department of Energy and Resources, all of which state that the waste can remain indefinitely at the Lucas Heights nuclear facility.

The Government's claim that most of the waste to be sent to the NT is a by-product of nuclear medicine is false. The Medical Association for Prevention of War states that the nuclear dump is totally unnecessary and notes that the government has been 'peddling a lie' by claiming that the nuclear dump would in any way facilitate the practice of nuclear medicine.

Nuclear waste poses the gravest threat to human and other life and has a half life of 240,000 years.

This petition is for residents from the electorate of Batman in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. We have fundamental disagreements with what our local member is doing and we believe he should be accountable to those he represents.

27. ConCERN - Stop CERN LHC Magnetic experiments


CERN has a 10,000 tonne magnet, the LHC experiment generates a field of 4 teslas, 100,000 times greater than the planet Earth. Built in Geneva, 300 feet under two giant pillars of the Jurassic iceage is a 6-metre diameter housing with a 13-metre long superconducting solenoid coil that stores 2.5 gigajoules of energy. The LHC has had a number of failures and an explosion will be switched on again to run at 14 trillion electron volts (TeV) in 2011.

The LHC magnet provides the trajectory curve for two beams of protons to speed 11,000 times per second in opposite directions, faster than the speed of light around in a magnetic ring the width of fire hoses, 27 kms long in a helium vacuum to keep it colder than absolute freezing −273.15°C equivalent −459.67°F and emptier than outer space.

CERN released Antimatter, or dark energy, in an experiment to find the God particle, 29 years ago, by attempting to recreate the conditions of the Big Bang, 14 billion years ago. CERN is only a short radius to the volcanoes in Iceland, 2,500kms, along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, spreading apart the Eurasion and North American plates. Ice poured into the volcano causing huge explosions. as watemelt hit hot lava, generating plumes of ash 30,000ft high. Satellites show a correlation between cosmic ray intensity and the amount of low cloud cover, through the formation of new aerosols (tiny particles suspended in the air that seed cloud droplets or deplete ozone) which influences the Earth's energy balance; small changes can have a strong effect on the climate.

For posterity’s sake the undersigned are very ConCERNed about the magnetic housing of ANTIMATTER and the risks involved and seek authorities to cease LHC Magnetic experiments.

GENEVA is the Palace of Nations, the place on earth that is the seat of power where all elite groups and the richest people in the world congregate and many hold the Nobel Peace Prize attributed to CERN’s facility. The state of the Environment is a reflection of the values of the rich.

28. Stop Progress Energy Increased Rates

Progress Energy has recently increased their bills causing people to pay twice their normal bills to pay for the construction of a nuclear power plant in Tampa, Florida. Nuclear power is very dangerous, and to place one in a populated area is indisputably reckless.

The cost of the plant is 17 billion dollars and Progress Energy currently serves 1.7 million people. This means that the price each household will pay (if split evenly) is 10,000 dollars. At the current rate, a little less that 8 percent (115.32 annually), this increase will be in effect for nearly 87 years unless more increases are to come to speed up the process. That's 87 years of these intense conditions, and in order to reduce the time, the payments must increase even more.

If you think it doesn't apply to you because you don't live in Florida think again.
