Stop Yucca Mountain Nuclear Dump

Tell Congress not to let the nuclear industry dictate dangerous radioactive waste policy!

Go to and sign our online petition opposing the Yucca Mountain nuclear dump.

Please forward this message to your friends, family, and colleagues!

The nuclear industry and its friends in government want to transport 77,000 tons of deadly high-level radioactive waste through communities in 44 states to a dump at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Yucca Mountain is in an earthquake zone and directly above the only source of drinking water for local residents. The land is claimed by the Western Shoshone Nation under the 1863 Treaty of Ruby Valley. In February 2002, the Bush administration officially recommended that the Yucca Mountain dump be built. The Governor of Nevada vetoed this recommendation but resolutions have been introduced in Congress to override Nevada's veto. A vote is expected later this spring.
