End the expansion of nuclear power

There are 104 operating nuclear reactors in the United States, and each
one is a threat to public health, safety and the environment. If a meltdown
were to occur, the accident could kill and injure tens of thousands of people,
leaving large regions uninhabitable.

The Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan is a tragic reminder that nuclear
power is inherently dangerous, especially to nearby communities. Radiation
spread well beyond the Japanese government's evacuation zone, and the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) advised Americans to evacuate a 50-
mile radius zone around Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant.

However, the NRC only requires emergency response plans for communities
within 10 mile of nuclear plants in the United States, so many Americans
don't know they are at risk. Nationwide, 1 in 3 Americans live within 50
miles of a nuclear plant - that's why we built this map.
