The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Sorcerer needed for Fukushima- or maybe sorceress?

The most disturbing sentence in the Oct. 16 Jiji article “Tepco’s toxic water failures pitiful [according to the Nuclear Regulation Authority]” is the last one: “Meanwhile, no community has volunteered to host the ‘final’ storage site.”

 

What mayor in his right mind would want his city to host a nuclear waste storage facility, one that will remain toxic for “tens of thousands of years”? Five thousand years from now, future archaeologists will be wearing sophisticated biochemical hazard suits whenever they venture out on a dig, thanks to the folly of 20th-century “atomic age man.” Why couldn’t mankind have waited until science developed the far safer nuclear fusion process before venturing into mass production of atomic energy?

 

The great pyramids of Egypt are only about 4,000 years old. Tokyo Electric Power Co. has proved to be the nuclear age’s “Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” but there’s nothing Mickey Mouse about radioactive contamination inundating the seas around Fukushima. Time for the Sorcerer to reappear and save the day.

  1. The woman is a lawyer, business woman, and a spin doctor. She had no experience or background in nuclear technologies when she was appointed Chairman of the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA). She is also the chairman of the nuclear power plant industry start-up Hyperion Power Generation. In 2010, she was appointed to the International Advisory Board for the development of nuclear energy in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In February 2011, she led a trade delegation to India to discuss how British companies could take part in the construction of six giant nuclear reactors at Jaitapur on the west coast of the country.

    She has sold her soul to protect the nuclear industry.

    She isn’t going to save anyone, nor is that her intent…
