sign-thisPETITION  Stop plans to build small nuclear reactors in Saskatchewan to power oil extraction from the Alberta Tar Sands

 

March 2 – Toronto, Canada – see  SNC Lavalin Nuclear and Ontario Power Generation in court 

March 5 – London – Conference on sustainable energy – dismantling Hinkley nuclear programme

April 14-16 2015 – Quebec City and Montreal -Uranium Film Festival

The global movement for a clean non nuclear future – theme for March 2015 

The nuclear lobby, the corporate establishment, governments and the mainstream media just don’t “get it”.  But the world is moving away from top-down, centrally organised, vertically structured systems.  Nuclear power, even that last ditch hope, “little” nuclear reactors – all are part of the out-dated systems.

There’s still a place for some centralised systems, with renewable energy transported by the grid. But along with the now horizontally organised communications – net-working across the world, grow the flexible and versatile systems of decentralised electricity generation.

Above all – the ever more rapid spread of ideas and campaigns. Some, we know, are harmful campaigns. But the movement for clean energy is unstoppable – spreading as it does from person to person – not relying on organisation by authorities and experts.

Indigenous campaigns lead the way – whether it be in America, Australia, Malaysia – indigenous peoples have already shown how they can slow down, even stop, the nuclear juggernaut.

  3. Hi. I agree with your sentiment here. Sorry, I may just be a little blind, but do you have an RSS feed? If so, could you please point me to it? I find it the best way to keep up to speed with the latest posts from a site.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Thank you, Simon.
      My problem is: that I am a complete amateur, and I do not understand what an RSS feed even is. I might have one, for all I know

  4. It is people like you and your readers who keep us addicted to oil. You think you are helping the environment? You are helping the oil companies and you’re so blinded by the reflection of your egos in the mirror to notice it.

  6. Well, Ohadi Langis turns out to be Dan Yurman
    Idaho Falls, ID, United States – proudly describing himself as:

    ” Serving nuclear energy markets since 1989. ”

    I first thought that his righteous indignation was genuinely in support of the original writers, whose work I quote, (with full acknowledgment and link)

    But no – Mr Yurman is a voice for th nuclear industry.

    Funny that I rarely get criticism from the genuinely concerned writers, and often have been offered free use of their work

  8. I recommend a good ecological and anti-nuclear site in Russia http://green.tomsk.ru/

    Tomsk, a place the world’s largest testing ground for the injection of radioactive wastes in the ground.

  9. Why you do not have e-newsletter?
    I do not always manage to find such news.

    Comment by green | September 9, 2009 | Reply

  10. I do, in fact, send out a news letter each week.
    However, I send it only to people who have asked for it.

    Why? My reason is simply pity for people who, like myself, receive heaps of emails, newsletters etc. It gets overwhelming. So, I send it only to those who have asked for it.
    I’ll send you the next one, green, and thanks for your link.

  12. well I think Moret is a fantasist with some kind of personality disorder, and that’s my 5 cents. OK I may change my mind, but this is how I came to that conclusion. I watched 2 of her talks and at first she was convincing, then I noticed she was citing articles in newspapers as though they were genuine science references and gradually I thought “oh dear this is some kind of play pretend ego trip, she doesn’t actually have the science to back this up”. Or something like that. Having 2 science degrees I thought the aura of the hard-nosed scientist was wearing thin. As these are psychology-based, I’m pretty familiar with the weirdness of people and it started to bother me that she might just be, well, quite sick.
    I got personally involved when she said her daughter was kidnapped and she couldn’t see her for 5 years. Why? Because this really happened to me, and it’s rare. I thought about emailing her, but wanted to find out more first if I could. What emerges is a clear picture that she repeats the same speech almost verbatim at every interview etc, so that explains the polished presentation. There are no more details, but what she describes (dark night of the soul) sounds kind of like a breakdown. I always wanted to be sure if by “kidnapped” she meant “my kid was taken into foster care” or something, because I wouldn’t waste any more time on it. And then I find she was only at livermore for 8 months in a computer lab and she only has a batchelor’s in geology? HOAXER. She’s obviously got a personality disorder and is havin’ it large at everyone’s expense. Go on. Prove me wrong. Please?

  13. ok maybe she’s not just full of shit, found this http://www.springerlink.com/content/r75v88151407100k/ and this http://www.springerlink.com/content/v0q0217745017p13/ on google scholar, so she must have done some work on dust like she says.
    I still need convincing about her claims of harassment, perhaps that’s unfair but I need more than just her say-so. Anything more than just the same statement repeated in every interview.
    I want her to be sincere, at least, whether her views are right or wrong, she is very charismatic.
