The week that was in nuclear news

dirty tricks


Please note – dirty tricks department. If you saw the Twitter note, (by pro thorium nuclear troll “Thomas Huxley”)- saying that my posts here are contaminated by a Trojan virus –  that is simply not true. It’s  a lie – aimed at stopping people from reading anti nuclear material.

Christina Macpherson’s websites & blogs

Ukraine. A most interesting news item this week has been further information on the impact of Chernobyl radiation inhibiting  the processes of decay of dead trees. A new study published in Oecologia, decomposers—organisms such as microbes, fungi and some types of insects that drive the process of decay—have also suffered from the contamination. Alexey Yablokov also reported effects on disease bacteria, and the necessity for studying the microbiological consequences of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe.   World’s largest moveable structure being built – the Chernobyl sarcophagus.

Iran. Landmark agreement in nuclear deal between Iran and the West

JapanLawsuit against Japanese government by Fukushima residents. TEPCO not paying up for radiation fallout cleanup in local municipalities. Japan forced to give USA nuclear corporations legal immunity, in order to get help with Fukushima cleanup. Radioactive waste “forgotten”in 12 provinces other than Fukushima. Deceptive push by Japan’s ruling Party to bring back dependence on nuclear power

Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Officials from Tepco have admitted   that there is no technology yet invented for cleaning up the molten nuclear fuel cores. Increasing percentage of radioactive cesium in water in basement of Fukushima nuclear reactor 1. Below Fukushima nuclear plant – pools of molten nuclear fuel.

UK. UK’s Hinkley nuclear plant developments stalled as financial negotiations drag on.  Nuclear waste dumps can be forced on local communities – new legislation. UK plan for solar panels on every school roof

USA. If the government bails out the failing commercial spent fuel reprocessing, (MOX – Mixed Oxide Fuel – plutonium and uranium) the big beneficiary will be the French company AREVA. Nuclear corporation Exelon using several strategies to get tax-payers and rate-payers to bail it out of financial trouble. Plans to expand South Texas nuclear plant are shelved. It’s getting serious when nuclear pollution threatens the wine industry

France. State owned nuclear corporation AREVA in deep financial trouble – needs tax-payer bailout

Bulgaria pulls out of $4bn Westinghouse nuclear deal.

Switzerland‘s revised nuclear liability law makes things much more expensive for nuclear companies

36 years since Three Mile Island accident- 36 unpalatable nuclear industry facts.

France‘s nuclear industry now a liability, with AREVA’s down ward spiral. France brings in law for green or solar roofsfor new commercial buildings.

USA. For the first time, Pentagon comes clean on Israel’s nuclear weapons.    It’s official: wrong sort of kitty littercaused New Mexico Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) accident. USA to establish a new “independent” Nuclear Waste Administration.

Small Modular Nuclear Reactors. Obama executive order tags small modular reactors as clean energy – the only form of nuclear power to qualify.  Dubious USA Bills for Small Nuclear Reactors, “education on nuclear”, and nuclear as “renewable”. St George city decides against getting electricity from NuScale’s Small Modular Nuclear Reactors. France’s AREVA nuclear company, itself in dire financial straits, is nevertheless advising NuScale on how to market SMRs. Small Nuclear Reactors turn out to have an equally Big Radioactive Waste problem. Cost of Small Nuclear Reactors is greater than cost of large ones

Significant actions by President Obama to address climate change. Tea Party leader joins environmentalists to formGREEN TEA COALITION.

India. International Atomic Energy Agency Slams India’s Nuclear Regulations. India to get $1 Billion USA ExIm Bank Credit, nearly all of it for renewable energy development

Japan.   Anti-nuclear activists want formal public hearings on risks of restarting reactors in Fukui Prefecture,  Coal plants funded by Japan’s money that was  designated for fighting climate change.

Fukushima.Tepco’s nuclear clean-up wasted $1.6 billion of tax-payers’ money.  food products mislabeledRadioactive cesium in Fukushima’s soil. The status of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

The present state of play of the Nuclear Free Movement

Christina Macpherson's websites & blogs

Christina Macpherson’s websites & blogs

Nuclear weapons. The focus has been on this issue throughout February. This weekend, experts in studying nuclear weapons and war have been gathering in New York at the Symposium: The Dynamics of Possible Nuclear Extinction. It’s streaming live – and podcasts, transcripts and a book will later be available.

This week – Lots of (not very good) news on nuclear weaponry and war risks, e.g USA law-makers wanting to spend $577 billion on defense, China, Russia, India ramping up their nuclear weaponry.  North Korea, too.

This month, the focus on, (and on will be on the growing movement for a clean nuclear-free planet.  At the same time, a global revolution is happening at extraordinary speed – the change from “top-down”  “vertically integrated” systems to “small scale or “horizontal” systems.  Some business examples – Airbnb, Taskrabbit, Uber,  They work through the “digital ecosystem” . Political examples – extreme religious activist groups. So it’s not all good. But most of it is good– based on trust between individuals, building “reputational capital” between strangers with a common vision.

The nuclear lobby has no grasp of this 21st Century transition.

Even the current nuclear PR for Small Modular Reactors is based on huge  centrally organised, government funded, mass purchase and mass distribution – imposed from above.  Compare that with the millions of homes and small businesses and institutions where individuals made the choice for solar energy – it was not imposed by government.

The clean planet movement is happening at the local level, most often led by indigenous people   – and they are linking up globally.  The new digital ecosytem has opened  the way for millions of people to work together for a healthy nuclear-free planet.

Renewable energy making the news now, as the nuclear industry stumbles

Christina Macpherson's websites & blogs

Christina Macpherson’s websites & blogs

I feel that I should be apologising to readers. This site is supposed to be all about nuclear news. But today I put up no less than 8 news posts about renewable energy. And, believe me, there were plenty more available..

The problem is –  renewable energy is where it is all happening  –  Scotland, Egypt, Pakistan, USA, China – with advancing technologyy, feed-in tariffs, grid connection to decentralised solar power – etc. (Not happening in my country – Australia – but that’s because we have a complete dickhead for a Prime Minister, and he’ll soon be kicked out)

I’d love to put up more news posts about nuclear power, rather than mainly opinion posts.  Especially about those silly little mini reactors they keep hyping about. But they are just not happening, the Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) are all hype, but no action..

As Japan struggles to get the big nuclear restart happening, and as UK goes  a bit silent on its very troubled Hinkley nuclear project, and USA nukes go broke – we wait for the next episode in the world’s sorry nuclear saga – and not very good prospects for the industry in 2015

The year when some real action might happen on climate change

Christina Macpherson's websites & blogs

Christina Macpherson’s websites & blogs

However much people can achieve through individual action, in 2015 it’s a critical time for public action. In December, world leaders meet again to make a plan for climate change action.

At the same time, the failing nuclear industry is making its last, and most dangerous stand, as the nuclear lobby portrays itself as the cure for global warming. Sometimes this pitch is subtly put, touting nuclear and renewable energy as both “part of the mix”. Whether subtly or blatantly, the nuclear lobby’s agenda includes stopping the development of renewable energy and of energy efficiency.

Pope Francis has come out loud and strong for climate action. And he’s going to be there at the December Summit. (A bit awkward for that devout Australian Catholic, Tony Abbott?) Sir David Attenborough warned world leaders to stop their ignoring and/or  denial of climate change

USA. The latest shutdown, of the Vermont Yankee nuclear facility, is having its impact across the whole American nuclear industry.  USA is really in  a mess here. Because the government is legally bound to provide a permanent nuclear waste dump, and has not done so, nuclear companies like Vermont Yankee’s Entergy Wholesale Commodities can go ahead andsue the government. As always, in matters nuclear, it’s the tax-payers who cop the bill.

At the same time, this sorry mess, plus the low costs of oil, gas, and renewables makes investors very averse to the nuclear industry.

Diplomacy. USA and Iran make  a tentative agreement on advance of the next round of nuclear talks. Success in these world talks would be a great step forward for global peace. Equally important would be a renewed nuclear arms control agreement between America and Russia. India and Pakistan exchange lists  of their nuclear facilities.

Despite those positive trends – there remains the problem of increasing nuclear weaponry –NATO , USA ,  China , India  ,Russia,

Renewable energy  – going ahead in leaps and bounds – Germany – 25% of its electricity production in Nov 14. Big companies investing in renewables – Norway’s Statkraft  and big multinational corporations
