I created a petition online at thepetitionsite.com to have a letter sent to the Turkish prime Minister and the Russian Prime minister Putin for this is a very Important matter
the more people the more pressure
Japan s Fukushima Daiichi power plant s radiation is still very alarming not only for the Japanese but for the Entire World. Japanese Prime Minister, Naoto Kan declares that Japan is on High Alert. Germany to China are suspending and rethinking their own nuclear-energy plans but Turkey s officials say their 50-year quest to build the country s first nuclear power plant is still moving full steam ahead.
Prime Turkish Minister told reporters ahead of a trip to Russia that two Russian firms have been chosen by the Turkish government to build a power plant in the Mediterranean town of Akkuyu, in Mersin province. Turkey is also in talks with Japan s Tokyo Electric Power Co and Toshiba, which built several of Fukushima s reactors, about constructing a second plant in the Black Sea town of Sinop.
A major quake in the Marmara region near Istanbul in 1999 killed nearly 17,000 people, and experts say Istanbul and other cities remain woefully unprepared for the next big tremor. The Akkuyu site is less than 30 kilometers from a fault line.
It is a mistake to go nuclear after what has happened in Japan. Turkish Energy Minister says that Turkey will use the third-generation technology that will make his plant safer than the first technology. No matter what they say they should not build a nuclear plant in a highly seismic area.
HERE’S THE LETTER YOU ARE SIGNING TO
AND WILL BE SENT TO THE TURKISH AND RUSSIAN PRIME MINISTERS

(Reuters) – Trace amounts of radioactive iodine linked to Japan’s crippled nuclear power station have turned up in rainwater samples as far away as Massachusetts during the past week, state officials said on Sunday.
The low level of radioiodine-131 detected in precipitation at a sample location in Massachusetts is comparable to findings in California, Washington state and Pennsylvania and poses no threat to drinking supplies, public health officials said.
Air samples from the same location in Massachusetts have shown no detectable radiation.
The samples are being collected from more than 100 sites around the country that are part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Radiation Network monitoring system.
“The drinking water supply in Massachusetts is unaffected by this short-term, slight elevation in radiation,” said Massachusetts Public Health Commissioner John Auerbach.
“We will carefully monitor the drinking water as we exercise an abundance of caution,” he said.
At concentrations found, the radioiodine-131 would likely become undetectable in a “relative short time,” according to a statement issued by agency.
Trace amounts of radiation believed to have originated from damaged Fukushima Daiichi reactors in the aftermath of Japan’s devastating 9.0 earthquake on March 11 have also been detected in air samples in several western U.S. states, but at levels so small they posed no risk to human health.

Can a Fukushima like nuclear accident happen in the United States?
Yesterday I asked the question, “How many nuclear reactors are there in the United States?” I asked this because after Greenpeace.org published my maps and download link on their blog, a person commented that there are 104 nuclear power plants in the U.S. not 63 as the blog said. At first I figured the confusion came about because some facilities have multiple reactors, but the numbers still didn’t add up. As I looked into it further I was becoming increasingly dismayed because every data set I looked at was a bit different – facilities on one list didn’t appear on others.
After examining lists in various reports and at government and NGO websites, I’ve determined that as of March 2011 there are 65 operating nuclear power facilities in the U.S. Each facility has from 1 to 3 reactors for a total of 104. This number does NOT account for those reactors that are decommissioned, reactors at research and university facilities or all of the nuclear waste at various locations around the United States. In time, I will make shapefiles available of these other nuclear hazards. See below for new maps, an updated nuclear and seismic hazards shapefile and spreadsheet that you may download and use as you wish.
How many nuclear reactors are there in the United States? A few people have noted that their only appears to be around 63 nuclear power plants on the map, yet, they say, there should be 104. At first I thought they were confused because many of the nuclear power plant facilities have more than one reactor. Some have as many as 3. So, I checked with the NRC and found 2 different lists that had 64 plants and 103 reactors, but the lists were not identical. A few plants appearing on one list, did not appear on the other. So, to get at the bottom of this and find the most current list of operating nuclear power plants in the U.S. I am going to compare the two NRC lists with those from Nukeworker.org, IEA and the World Nuclear Association and come up with THE list.
