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

This week in climate and nuclear news

Anti-science got a boost this week, as the “leader of the free world” Donald Trump, visiting the catastrophic California wildfire sites, reaffirmed his rejection of climate science.    The Trump administration went on to deny its own government’s dire new report on climate change. It is disturbing and sad, to see so many people accepting the doctrine, which was named by Carl Sagan decades ago, – climate denial. Even as the evidence mounts – of rising global average temperatures, arctic melting, sea level rise, and increasing extreme weather events,- politicians and much of the media promote the fossil fuel line of denial.

  1. It sucks for me to know that i am living in a place where most of the food i can afford and, get is laced with pesticides. Where there are mountains of garbage and plastic shit everywhere. Where the air is full of particulates, carbon monoxide, heavy metal poisons, and who knows what else. Same for the water. The gross pollution is as bad in rural areas, the air and water quality is too.

    A country and place where no matter where you go, people spend most of their time in shitwagons, driving around buying shit they do not need or more contaminated food . This will be another great season for ebay and amazon as well, this year again. I am sure!

    When people are not driving and buying, they are being hyperentertained in consumer fantasyland or brainwashed by cable news.
    Then some go to church on sunday, where this lifestyle is condoned and encouraged, though it is grossly bereft of any spiritual or contemplative value.

    Pretty much a fake self-devouring society.
    If u aint into playing the game, you are  largely not welcome. You are isolated because your fellow monkeys consider u the lowest of low from not playing the consumption monkey game as much as they think, u should

    What a messed up country what a messed up loser president and government of crooks

    A clown spent 100 milion of taxpayers money golfing where and when it wants. Gasses and innocent children. Preaches racism, hate, jingoistic-lies, fascism, more lies at every turn

    Water full of radium uranium from fracking ff burning and refining. The worst Radioactive waste everywhere even in smoke detectors
