WASHINGTON, DC - Oct. 23: Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Graham Nash and Rep. Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, during a news conference calling on Congress to wipe language from the Senate-passed energy bill (HR 3221) that would authorize $50 billion in loan guarantees to finance new nuclear reactors. A petition circulated by No Nukes counts 120,000 signatures, ranging from the rock band R.E.M. to the Sierra Club, of supporters of efforts to prevent the government from underwriting the building of new nuclear plants. The rock stars are urging Congress to back parts of the energy bill that advance safer alternatives, including solar and wind power generation. (Photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly).
