Tell President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. It poses too great a threat to survival and health.
Countdown To Zero
In recent years, there has been a sea change in thinking about nuclear weapons. Security experts, led by the likes of former Cold Warriors Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, have recognized that the threat of unchecked proliferation radically increases the chances of an accidental or regional nuclear war or a terrorist attack with a nuclear weapon. That's why there is a growing bipartisan consensus among military and security experts who are promoting a nuclear security agenda aimed at reducing this threat – including securing nuclear materials worldwide. Last month, for the first time ever, forty-seven world leaders came together at the Nuclear Security Summit and agreed that nuclear terrorism is "one of the most challenging threats to international security." They also agreed to do something about it, including endorsing the U.S. goal of securing all vulnerable nuclear material in four years.
But tackling this threat will take both real money and political commitment from our Members of Congress. This is where you come in! Write your representatives and tell them to speak out on the threat posed to U.S. national security from nuclear terrorism and to support sufficient funding for nuclear security programs.
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
