Pres.Obama on Nuclear Power in U.S.

I wrote two letters to President Obama and sent several emails regarding my views about nuclear power in the U.S. These were all pre-dating the nuclear power plant disaster in Japan. I was surprised to receive a letter of response from the White House.

Summarizing, the messages I sent to President Obama basically stated that I opposed new nuclear power plants being built in the U.S., and that nuclear power is NOT "green" and should not be considered a "sustainable" source of energy.

Below is the exact wording of the letter I received in response. To clarify, I did NOT write about nuclear disarmament, I wrote about nuclear ENERGY. My concerns about safety, cost, pollution caused by uranium mining, what to do with nuclear waste, etc. were NOT addressed.

Needless to say, the White House letter infuriated me. I have yet to compose an email or letter in response, as I can not think straight to be polite. Please note the date of the response: May 3, 2011, well after the initiation of the nuclear power plant disaster in Japan.

Washington

Dear ...:

Thank you for your views on issues related to nuclear arms control and energy. I appreciate your perspective.

Nuclear weapons and their proliferation pose one of the gravest threats to America and the world, from North Korea's nuclear and long-range missle tests, to Iran's expanding nuclear program, to the potential of terrorists obtaining these weapons. Since the end of the Cold War, the threat of a global nuclear was has decreased, but the risk of nuclear attack has increased. However, even as we seek to end this threat, we must also use nuclear energy as one option to help the world confront the effects of climate change. Building on my previous work in the United States Senate, my Administration will partner with the international community to limit the danger of nuclear weapons, while encouraging the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

As Commander-in-Chief, I am committed to stopping nuclear proliferation and seeking a world free of nuclear weapons. To achieve this goal, we will lead efforts to reduce nuclear arsenals, and bring into force the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and a verifiable Fissible Material Cuttoff Treaty. My administration has signed the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty with Russia to reduce our warheads and delivery systems, consistent with our commitments under the Nucelar Non-Proliferation Treaty. We will also increase cooperation to secure all vulnerable nuclear materials, work with others to enhance the international inspection system, and take decisive action when countries break the rules.

Thank you again for writing on this important issue.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama"
