If you want to keep up with news about nuclear issues around the world, there’s no easier way to do it than to subscribe to No Nukes News. You can read the current issue online just by clicking on the link above. There’s a button to subscribe at the top of the page.
The newsletter is supported by the Ontario Clean Air Alliance. Consequently, you’ll see the newsletter has a section focusing on events and actions specific to Ontario. However, that in no way prevents their thorough gathering of nuclear news from around the world from being of great value.
I’ve been a subscriber for a while now, and I have not noticed any increase in spam in my email. It seems they do not sell email addresses for any commercial purpose.

Act Now! Tell OMB to reject EPA proposal to increase allowable radioactivity in drinking water following nuclear emergency
March 9, 2016
EPA has quietly proposed to raise the allowable levels of radioactivity in drinking water to hundreds of times their current limits following a nuclear emergency. The Safe Drinking Water Act establishes Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL’s) for specific radionuclides. But now EPA has proposed allowing people to drink water with concentrations of radioactivity at vastly higher levels with no actions taken by government to protect people.
