Natural Disasters In The U.S. And Nuclear Power: Why Iowans Are Getting Involved

The Iowa Legislature is considering enacting a law to subsidize the nuclear power industry this session.

Let’s Get Together, Act and SHUT DOWN this Legislation

“Natural Disasters in the U.S. and Nuclear Power” is the topic of a talk by John Rachow M.D.

Thursday, February 2, 2012 at  7:30pm,  Main Meeting Room at the Hiawatha Library,
150 West Willman Street, Hiawatha

Dr. Rachow, immediate past President of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), is speaking in response to the recent disaster in Japan.

All are welcome. The public is invited. There is no charge.

Iowa PSR is leading a grassroots campaign against an advanced cost recovery bill, a measure which would enable utilities to collect the capital expense for a new nuclear reactor in advance from their customers.  The bill, which is being seriously considered by the Iowa House of Representatives [italics BFIA’s], was supported by MidAmerican Energy.  If the bill passes, MidAmerican would be allowed to recover all development costs from ratepayers and retain the advanced payments, if for any reason, a risky new nuclear reactor is not built.
