Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) are asking folks to sign on to a petition to the Prime Minister of Japan and his Cabinet in opposition to proposed loans from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) for the construction of two new nuclear reactors in south Texas.
NIRS is also sending a letter signed by a large list of organizations from the U.S., Japan and other international NGOs. We don’t believe JBIC has ever received this kind of international attention on a nuclear issue before—indeed, this loan is being considered before JBIC has even drawn up guidelines for funding nuclear projects! And it would be a bad deal for JBIC and Japanese taxpayers, as well as people in Texas.
