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

Don’t fall for the nuclear lobby lie about climate change – theme for July 18

Like the tobacco and asbestos industries before them, the nuclear lobby will ruthlessly promote any lie to keep their industry going.

Of course it’s all about getting tax-payer money.  How?  By promoting the lie that nuclear energy is a solution to climate change, so should get financial incentives from government.

Explode that lie, because:

  • The entire nuclear fuel chain releases greenhouse gases.  
  • The nuclear fuel chain is in itself a grave danger because  weather extremes with climate change could cause nuclear disasters.

climate and nuclear

 

Even if nuclear power were clean and greenhouse gas free, (which it’s not) it would not be ready in time to have any real effect on climate. It would require the very quick build of some 2000 large reactors  – or of millions of the much touted Small Modular Nuclear Reactors.

On this, the hypocrisy of nuclear front groups  is breath-taking. The Breakthrough Institute and UK’s Alvin Weinberg Foundation know perfectly well that their touted nuclear power is no solution to global warming.

  4. The nuclearist state and industrial state  in america has poisoned america, into a place of unsurpasable chronic disease and cancer clusters. Much of it attributable to massive radionuclide pollution, from nuclear energy pursuit and production-nuclear weapon production. Nuke bomb testing. Nuclear waste is omnipresent, unbridled chemical pollution now unfettered by fascism. The blatantly discriminatory healthcare system is now openly embraced by the fascist state . 

    Downwinders , soldiers and their families have recieved little from the crimes of nuclear contamination committed by nuclear energy companies and the military complex. They have recieved pittances from being used as test rats for nuclear detonations, and contamination of america by the nuclear industry and its military counterpart.   

    Look at what happened to the USS ronald Reagan saileors at Fukushima. It is a drop in the bucket, of what nuclearists have done and are doing. What was done in the Marshall Islands and to the vast citizenry of the  United States. 

     THE victims of the thousand of nuclear tests in america  recieved mere pittances,  for the past crimes of the, nuclear military industial complex crimes, in america and elsewhere. 50 thousand or a hundred thousand dollars per family or person. 

    Trump seeks the expand the nuclear military complex and nuclear energy in america . It has ruined 75 years and they are cmmitting to it and a suicide-nuclear war machine unprecedented in the face of Fukushima.

    Many people in america, have been denied adequate healthcare because, of pre-existing conditions for year. It is open and blatant under trump. In many instances those conditions, could be traced to the unbound hubris, of the nuclear industrial comples and military nuclear comlpex and nuclear industrial complex. Trump wants to expand it, descriminate against people with pre-existing conditions, worse than before.

    Trump has  lied in major ways about healthcare in America. He has done an about face, about his comittment to do something about healthcare in america.. 

    The diseased trumproll,  natural news recently said  trump has drained the opioid swamp in medicare in america . Actually Trump  cut off pain meds for elderly people with horrible conditions like cancer and scoliosis on medicare. 

    The fascists trumpsters and trumptrolls, are again hard at work to making it impossible for most people to see a doctor if they are poor, elderly, or have preexisting conditions without putting up 400 dollars per visit up. That is because the aca and its provsions demanding that people, that have existing conditions or disabilities have the right to healthcare and health insurance. Lies, lies, and more lies are a continuing active part of the blatant lies and propaganda in the trump wrecking of what is left of america. Trump told the most baldfaces lies possible about holding medical costs and pharmaceuticla costs, down to the majority of americans.

    St Louis Dispatch

    With the usual ballyhoo, the White House said on May 11 that President Donald Trump would announce his long-delayed plans to reduce the costs of prescription drugs. When Trump began speaking at 2:08 p.m., stock prices on Standard & Poor’s pharmaceutical sector dropped. By the time he finished speaking, the sector was soaring.

    Big Pharma was very happy with Trump’s speech. It contained nothing that will threaten its enormous profits nor anything that will slow down relentless price increases. As president-elect, Trump accused drug companies of“getting away with murder.” As president, Trump has become an accessory to that murder.

    It was yet another broken populist campaign promise, joining “great health care,” putting coal miners back to work, a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan and more. Trump has kept his promise to crack down on immigrants and move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, but his economic populism has proved to be a mirage.

    Of course that doesn’t mean he won’t try to fool people into thinking otherwise: “Everyone involved in the broken system — the drugmakers, insurance companies, distributors, pharmacy benefit managers and many others — contribute to the problem,” Trump said. “Government has also been part of the problem because previous leaders turned a blind eye to this incredible abuse.”

    All of that is true, but the one key to dealing with the problem is to recognize that everything stems from the upfront price that drugmakers charge . Same drugs that cost $100 or 1000 dollars cost 10 or 20 dollars in canada or mexico

    Health professionals and cancer survivors, know only too well how rotten the american system is. Half the 10 million homeless people in america, are bankrupt from medical costs from things like radionuclide induced cancers. It is about to become a lot worse.

  6. Our health in the USA IS BADLY DEGRADED by radionuclide pollution.. i have seen towns with nuclear insults in the west like Monticello Utah. Like Los Alamos New Mexico. Towns by Vegas. FALLON nevada. Uranium towns in colorado.

    Towns, Down wind from Nuke Blasts. Major nuclear dumps. Uranium mines and mills everywhere. Bombs detonated underground to free natural gas. In those small isolated towns, one can see the future of mankind. Huge cancer clusters. Multiple birth defects , easily visible in the larger than usual, special ed classes. It has occurred for 60 years in towns of 6000 people or less. In tricities and wala wala washington . In east idaho. In west wyoming. On the navajo res in northern Arizona
    Towns with much higher than normal incidence of down sydrome, fragile x sydrome, Autism, cf, cerebral palsey, genetic illness passed down into future generation. Ungodly high incidences of childhoud cancer.

    3/4 of population of small towns, with thyroid disease. Huge swaths of men, with prostate cancer. Many people dying in middle age or earlier, from lung cancers, ovarian cancers, breast cancers. Half a graduating high school class wiped out before age 55!

    The united states is already the most radionuclide polluted country in the world. Nuclear catastrophes, like the nuclear waste on fire at the Saint Louis Dump. Massive amounts of plutonium, cesium 137, now contaminating the Columbia River, from Ruined tanks at Hanford. Lake mead and the Colorado full of poison from bomb detonations, mines, mills, fracking.

    Multiple nuke reactors east of the Mississippi and in the Midwest, are leaking like a sieve. They are dumping large amounts of tritium hydroxide, and other radionuclides into the envronment.

    Trump wants more plutonium, so he has kicked in a third wave, of extraction, contamination, and massive pollution into the USA. TRUMP has deregulated and prolonged old dangerous nuclear reactors. That will be another big wave of nuclear pollution in the good ol USA.

    Then there are the catastrophes going on and, those likely to occur. There are dangerous waste shipments coursing, through the US interstate system, to be parked in massive shallow excavations, over aquifers in the USA.

    There were two huge casks of nuke waste that exploded in Idaho resently.
    Idaho will start a large fast breeder again soon. One like the smaller ones, that melted down in idaho before, and at santa susana in california.

    Waves of contamination all over the usa  are more likely now, than ever before.

    There is a potential 3 or 4 meltdowns like three mile island or worse

    Potential of Fuel pools catching fire.

    The potential nuclear waste accidents on hiway systems. More cask explosions

    More Wipp like accidents are likely now. There are 100, old beat-up reactors, across the USA. They have fuel pools chocked full of hi level-nuclear waste.

    Soon 3/4 of the towns in america, could be like the cancer clusters, in the usa, in the small towns, I started this piece talking about those small, sparsely populated, isolated towns in the west, where you can see the results of years of nuclear pollution.  There are higher incendents of things like leukemia mortality around nuclear reactors in more populated areas. but, the gross effects of massive nuclear pollution are not as apparent or easy to qualify and,  quantify, in larger, more densely populated areas. That will change as  gross nuclear and radionuclide saturation and pollution increases. Things like chernobyl heart in belaruss will be more apparent.

    Most of the US will be like mayak, like pripyat, like much of belarus soon. It will be Like much of northern Japan and probably Tokyo soon. The massive gulper money mongers and politicians do not careb

  7. Trump has whole heartedly opened up the radioacitve nightmare in america again.  Uranium Mining in the Grand canyon. Into water that supplies much of the western Unitied States.

    This excerpt is frm Majias Blog

    “””In 2017 UR Energy’s Lost Creek mine in Wyoming had a terrible accident, described in the headline below as one of the worst recorded uranium mine spills, although trivialized in impact as not posing a threat: 
    Heather Richards (2017, September 8). Wyoming uranium mine spill one of the largest recorded in U.S.; officials say it does not pose a threat. Star Tribune:https://trib.com/business/energy/wyoming-uranium-mine-spill-one-of-the-largest-recorded-in/article_563faf2a-4093-5749-aaea-38f1f6b8efb0.html

    The Lost Creek uranium mine north of Rawlins shut down operations Wednesday just weeks after reporting one of the largest spills of uranium injection fluid ever recorded in the U.S.

    The spill was contained on site and is not a human health hazard, according to federal regulators. The spilled fluid had not yet been pumped into the uranium ore beneath the surface. Radioactive metal contained in the fluid was naturally occurring.

    The mine, owned by Littleton, Colorado-based Ur-Energy, reported an Aug. 19 spill of 188,000 gallons of pre-injection fluid at Lost Creek. Another spill of 10,000 gallons of pre-injection fluid at Lost Creek on Tuesday was reported to federal regulators.
    See how the article trivializes impact by stating that the radioactive metal contained in the spilled fluid was “naturally occurring.”

    Uranium mining rapes the earth and processing and utilization poison the population as well as the eco-systems upon which we depend.

    We don’t need nuclear power – its inefficient, costly, dangerous, and no solution exists for waste – and we don’t need nuclear weapons.

    We don’t need any more uranium. Its antithetical to security when thought in relation to the preservation of life.””””

    Start from Ship Rock NM, where a 90 million gallons of highly radioactive sludge, was illegally released illegally into the  environment and,  san juan river. The san Juan River Drains into the Colorado River.

    Shiprock is also close to where underground nukes were detonated in New Mexico for project gasbuggy
    Shiprock is on the navajo nation. 

    From there, moving West on the Navajo Nation. 

    Moving west to the grand canyon and the Uranium Mines there! Also downwind from Nevada nuke testing in the 50s and 60s.

    GO NORTH TO Halchita IN DEEP SOUTH UTAH, BY the sacred Monument Valley.

    Halchita, is where there was a uranium Mill and where there were mines, on the navajo Nation. Halchita is also downwind, from where the American Military nuke bombed its own citizens with a thousand bombs.

    HALCHITA IS NAVAJO land, where half the residents in the area died from cancer.

    Move norteast to Blanding, Utah, where energy Fuels is now located. By Bears ears, where Trump just opened unlimited uranium mining, even open pit uranium mining. 

    BLANDING IS Also downwinder. So many young people dead in mine accidents, prematurely from lung cancer, pacreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, lymphomas, leukemias. MANY PEOPLE THERE HATE URANIUM AND NUCLEAR.

    A leader of the sagebrush rebellion, Cal Black, WAS a county commissioner of that county, San Juan County in the 60s and 70s.

    Cal Black died with painful tumors, all over his body, at a young age. He regretted his involvement with Uranium, in the end. 

    The principal of Monticello High School,  had a young son, who died of the same leukemia, that cursed so many kids in southern utah. All of those kids were downwinders and uranium babies. Monticello is just 20 miles north of the Energy Fuels genocide factory.

    There was a Uranium Mill, right in the middle of monticello. It has not cleaned up all the way, to this day. 

    The mill and tailings of energy fuels in blanding blows radioactive shit all over s utah to colorado and arizona.

    Blanding and energy fuels, are 20 miles s of Monticello Utah. 

    The heavily contaminated dust from that abomination, blows radioactive shit, to the Ute reservation in colorado 50 miles away, to Bluff Utah by Monument valley and has heavily contaminated the Bears Ears. 

    There were the numerous nuclear bombs, detonated at the headwaters of and under the Colorado River in the 60s and 70s. There are the towns north of energy fuels along the Colorado river in Utah and colarado, that had to sue the government and corporate polluters for 20 years, to get something done about the radioactive shit in their towns. 

    And now Trump is back to start it up all over again and make it worse.
