bonnie.jpgWhatever side of the nuclear power debate you stand on, there’s no denying the passionate spirit of those for and against. Entertainers are generally anti-nuclear; from Martin Sheen to Alec Baldwin. Not surprisingly, a large number of musicians are also in the thick of it.

With new legislation currently before Congress authorizing the Department of Energy to provide virtually unlimited loan guarantees for funding of new nuclear reactors, a massive effort to drop the billions offered is underway by musicians. Spearheading the efforts are Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne and Graham Nash. Together with support from Ben Harper, Maroon 5, Melissa Etheridge, Pearl Jam, Greenpeace, the NRDC, and other individuals and organizations, they’ve launched a new campaign called Nuke Free. From the petition,

“We ask that all members of Congress join us in working to remove from the pending Energy Bill massively expensive loan guarantees—potentially a virtual blank check from taxpayers— for the building of many more nuclear power plants. We strongly support those parts of this Energy Bill that advance Renewable Portfolio Standards, increased fuel efficiency for automobiles, and other safe, clean solutions to global warming.”
