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

Nuclear scientists not so well aware of the risks – theme for April 2018

Research has found disturbing differences in the attitudes of scientists in different areas, to health and environmental risks of the nuclear industry.

It is even more disturbing that policy-makers and politicians prefer to support  and value the opinions and work of the very scientists who are least informed and least interested in those risks.

Politics and Scientific Expertise: Scientists, Risk Perception, and Nuclear Waste Policy, Richard P. Barke Hank C. Jenkins‐Smith.   – To study the homogeneity and influences on scientists’perspectives of environmental risks, we have examined similarities and differences in risk perceptions, particularly regarding nuclear wastes, and policy preferences among 1011 scientists and engineers. We found significant differences (p0.05)in the patterns of beliefs among scientists from different fields of research. In contrast to physicists, chemists, and engineers, life scientists tend to: (a)perceive the greatest risks from nuclear energy and nuclear waste management; (b)perceive higher levels of overall environmental risk; (c)strongly oppose imposing risks on unconsenting individuals; and (d)prefer stronger requirements for environmental management.

On some issues related to priorities among public problems and calls for government action, there are significant variations among life scientists or physical scientists. We also found that–independently of field of research–perceptions of risk and its correlates are significantly associated with the type of institution in which the scientist is employed. Scientists in universities or state and local governments tend to see the risks of nuclear energy and wastes as greater than scientists who work as business consultants, for federal organizations, or for private research laboratories. Significant differences also are found in priority given to environmental risks, the perceived proximity of environmental disaster, willingness to impose risks on an unconsenting population, and the necessity of accepting risks and sacrifices. more https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1539-6924.1993.tb00743.x

  1. Deadline Monday to Register for teleconference re burial of high level nuclear waste in New Mexico by Holtec. It will involve cross country transport and burial of first 500 and then 10,000 high level nuclear waste cans (Chernobyls in a can) and MOX cross-country. https://adamswebsearch2.nrc.gov/webSearch2/view?AccessionNumber=ML18107A144
    Written Comment deadline end of May: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2018/03/19/2018-05438/holtec-internationals-hi-store-consolidated-interim-storage-facility-for-interim-storage-of-spent

    New Mexico seems to be almost as unfit for burial of waste as Australia due to dryness and fire, and with a lot of fracking in the area maybe even more dangerous. There is karst in the area too, I think.

  2. Most of what people think they see, in murica is gutter lies, manipulative smelly horseshit, psychotic conspiracy confabulation, hyperiintellectualized bullshit.  Many people like me  have done every job there is, in shithole murica. Worked in nuclear plants. Breathed industrial chemical shit or rad shit dust in muricas backbone ,industrial fukholes. We have cleaned at a mcdonalds. Bagged groceries. Dug ditches. Shoveled horse shit, If people came even close to getting payed, by how hard, they had to work and how dangerous a lot of peoples work is maybe things would be different.  If people were given decent places to live , decent healthcare in this shitass place, maybe things, would be a lot different . Maybe things might be different for many,in this assinine blowhard, parallel fukwad and degenerating shithole society. But they are not.

    If every month a person like a sociology college professor, a nuclear pysics moron, a quack blowhard doctor who constantly misdiagnoses overprecribes garbage shit , and spends most of its time bitching about crappy private and medicare reimbursements had to really work. If a shitass lawyer had to work a day at a burger king or, in a smelly dangerous chemical  industrial plant, or as a  low end medical aid or bedpan nurse , at amazon or walmart, or as a cop things would be different. If they  had to pay 2/3 of their income in a ghetto tenament for rent, w no access to medical care, barely paying bills, watching this shit society fall apart around them…….

    If crooked politicians and their sire …….

    Maybe people who work hard,  would get paid ok . Maybe more would have a decent place to live, healthcare, food that is not riddled with shit poison chemicals, maybe things would be different. Maybe the people who have comforts would stop bitching about the people  they percieve less than human and become semi human themselves.

    If more people here saw the real murica, maybe there would be some changes. 

    If people from africa saw the way things really are  here for most people:The garbage, the violence, the smugness,  with shit lying med care, overindulgence in the junky phoney-wasteful, fake society . Piles of chemical and redioactive garbage. The chronic illness from the pollution and shit fake abundance, the overconsumption. 

    It they saw what most likely awaits most of them if  they come here: The hate, the itinerant shelter, maybe they would rally to save their own countries that still have some clean water , air, and soil. If shitwad mureicans saw reality, maybe they would do something with the evil demon 
    Killers leaders, liars and scumbags. Their criminal politicians ,   that are destroying africa and the rest of the world. That are destroying this country. 

    And yet  all the dumn monkeys here,  ignore the ecocidal destruction of life support that makes them fat, stupid, makes their children be birth defects, makes everyone hate everyone else,   in this chemical-radioactive sewer. Maybe there would be incentive for the africans to do something about their countries.

    If you  saw the shitty delapidated boarding houses, with 100 rooms in major cities. The firetrap boarding houses that have shit on the walls in the main halls, shared toilets an 8 by 10 room for 800 hundred a month with 3 african refugees in each 8 by 10 room . African refugees that go to Mcdonalds down the street, for free wifi to talk to their white prostitute girlfriends in jail.

    All the chaos, wastes, violence, nonsensical bullcrap, walking over homeless people in shithole cities. If you stopped and really saw and talked to young people who cannot afford to move out of their parents houses or young people and working poor families, that work three shit jobs to pay 1300 a month for a shithole. 

    There are the more privilidged working at a chemical plant, breathing crap that will kill u in 15 years. Working in shit chemical plants  makes half the kids they sire retarded with birth defects, so they can drive that nice big truck.  So they can contribute further  to the huge islands of garbage in the  ocean, the size of texas. Have more water full of radium from fracking and cars and coal plants, yet the illusion must go on.There are a lot fewer birds in many cities in murica,  not many because of pesticides, fuku, car exhaust, nucular power trash 75 percent if insects in n hemisphere dead. Nuclear power plants on the verge of fukups , that constantly belch radioactive tritium dioxide in wit the water vaor from their cooling towers, into the environment.
    Whats left of wildlife un murica is coyotes and crows moving into degenerate human shitholes to eek it out for a while.

    There are the sycopants and suckasses  who have lived comfortably, as librarians et al, and cannot really think for themselves . They prattle on about some fuking payed political hack racist , loser college professors in canada. Demented old idiots living on social security and or some bloated pension, they do not deserve, that watch fox tv. The same fox where a talking head tells them to vote for asses that further want to degrade them, fuk them and everyone else over. That want  bomb more innocents all over the world into oblivian. .

    Their are engineers and workers,adminstators, vampire ceos, sukasses, criminal politicians, wall street vampire squids living comfortably. They create the weapons and munitions . The death machines for the empire, to massacre innocent people, all over the world and turn them into refugees.

     Of course, the refugees are forced to cum to this degenerating chemical radioactive , shithole . Many end up in poverty or maybe 1 or two can be sociology professors..

    Meanwhile, The Vampire squid shitheads that  pedeantic college  professors call,  masters of the universe, in their suckass intellecualized diversions talk, enourage the propaganda. Wal street vampire squid hedge fund “managers” are destroying peoples pension funds, gulping resources en masse, killing what is left OF THE ENVIRONMENT, and pushing more people to the edge, in this goddamed eraserhead nightmare.

    What is left of an eco system in this fake fraudulent chemical, radioactive craphole. In this police and nuclear security state is rapidly dying.

    There are a far fewer birds anywhere in the us shithole usa. All of the fukwads with their rosecolored glasses, never notice it. There not many because of pesticides. There are the chemical and coal plants.  There is the fracking  that poisons our water with radium. There is the jet exhuast, th car exhaust, nucular power trash. 75 percent of insects in n hemisphere are dead. Most birds are gone. U cannot eat fish from the great lakes. Really not even the ocean.
