- Educate the public about the existence of nuclear contamination in Idaho and beyond.
- Help launch community-solar projects to meet the needs of low-income energy customers.
- Eliminate coal-fired power production in the portfolios of Idaho's 3 major energy utilities.
- Establish regional power planning goals to meet all projected electrical load-growth with energy efficiency and renewable resources.
- Stop proposed shipments of commercial spent nuclear fuel to the INL.
- Assure government clean-up of existing nuclear contamination at INL.
We have stopped misguided programs such as the injection of nuclear waste into our aquifer, nuclear weapons production facilities and blocked nuclear waste from coming into the state in violation of Idaho's 1995 Nuclear Waste Agreement. We have coordinated many public education campaigns to educate citizens, advocated for policy changes with elected representatives and organized people living in the most affected rural communities.
No one wants their water polluted or their children's future compromised. To reach a wider public we use nontraditional strategies such as public art shows, in-school programs and direct hands-on solarization projects to change public opinion and local politics.
