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

The nuclear industry, climate change, and the concept of ENOUGH – theme for December 2018

To the nuclear industry the concept of ENOUGH is anathema. If you saw their slick advertising film “Pandora’s Promise” you would note that their major theme is endless GROWTH that will perpetually require ENDLESS ENERGY.

The nuclear industry’s shills, and there are many of them, love to portray the anti-nuclear movement as wanting to send people back to living in a “dark ages” style.  Nothing could be further from the truth. Genuine environmentalists want all people to have a life of more light, of reasonable comfort and leisure time, of enough of the good things of this world, rather than of too much.

It’s time that governments, bankers, industry leaders woke up to the reality that the world economy is threatened by growth, by climate change, threatened by the accelerating destruction of this planet’s  air, water, land, and biodiversity. The destroyer is the growing human population and its growing consumption of ever more unnecessary products and unnecessary energy use.

It’s time that people stepped away from endless individualistic  consumption, and towards a reasonable life of more cooperation, of working less hours. It’s time to move from our suicidal consumer culture, to a conserver culture.

  1. It can also mean endless war in the undying quest for cheap oil in the middle east and Uranium in Africa.
    The USA continues to us Depleted Uranium in armoured vehicles, bombs, bullets, mortars, rockets, artillery, and other armaments in Syria, Iraq, and Afganhistan. It is used in all American ballistics..
    Cancer as a weapon. George H W Bush Sr.s radioactive war on Iraq.

  2. It is surreal. The lies. The weird propaganda. The bald-faced lies. The insanity. Saying and doing anything to keep the oil and uranium flowing when nuclear power is dying, the environment is dying. Consumption at any cost. Even nuclear war.An asteroid will hit in 12 years. That means to them, that building-up nuclear arsenals Does not matter. That means Nuclear-arming Japan and Saudi Arabia, does not matter.

    There has been a huge burgeoning of good information, about nuclear dangers, since Fukushima. Unfortunately, some did not want it to continue and keep going the way it has been going, while the problems of nuclear and Fukushima are ongoing.

    To them, volatile and incendiary nuclear waste does not matter so much. Just put it in Nevada or on pads in the west.
    Uranium mining does not matter. DU munitions do not matter.

    Deregulating, and subsidizing nuclear power does not matter. Japan opening damaged reactors, from the Fukushima earthquake does not matter. War with Iran and potential nuclear war, does not matter.
    That is because an asteroid is going to hit in 10 years or so years. Don’t ya know!

    That is what the Controlled Oposition at you-know-where maintained for the last two and a half years or so, of it’s existence.
    Hormesis and the Killer Asteroid meme are called Black Propaganda

    Not to be confused with black nationalist propaganda.
    Black propaganda is false information and material that purports to be from a source on one side of a conflict, but is actually from the opposing side.

    in other words it is Controlled Opposition.

    It is typically used to vilify, embarrass, or misrepresent the enemy. Black propaganda contrasts with grey propaganda, the source of which is not identified, and white propaganda, in which the real source is declared and usually more accurate information is given, albeit slanted, distorted and omissive. Black propaganda is covert in nature in that its aims, identity, significance, and sources are hidden.

    The major characteristic of black propaganda is that the people are not aware that someone is influencing them, and do not feel that they are being pushed in a certain direction. Black propaganda purports to emanate from a source other than the true source. This type of propaganda is associated with covert psychological operations. Sometimes the source is concealed or credited to a false authority and spreads lies, fabrications, and deceptions. Black propaganda is the “big lie”, including all types of creative deceit. Black propaganda relies on the willingness of the receiver to accept the credibility of the source. If the creators or senders of the black propaganda message do not adequately understand their intended audience, the message may be misunderstood, seem suspicious, or fail altogether.

    Governments conduct black propaganda for reasons that include: A) by disguising their direct involvement a government may be more likely to succeed in convincing an otherwise unbelieving target audience, and B) there are diplomatic reasons behind the use of black propaganda. Black propaganda is used to obfuscate a government’s involvement in activities that they think may be detrimental to its foreign policies.

  3. Question to Dun Renard. What do you think will happen in France.George
    I would think that the French had
    Better hope Le Pen does not get in or, France will be a Nazi Shithole like the Ukraine and Japan. She will drive France to its knees.
    There will be a nuclear accident there, as there has been with nuclear waste in Ukraine and as there will be soon in reactors in the USA, Japan, the Ukraine and Russia.
    How could people be so stupid?

  4. Somewhat tangentially related…but I was wondering is an increase of about 10^18 “enough”?

    • I don’t know. Thank you for interesting link from The Lancet

      • I appreciate the reply. Here’s another random link, filled with some irony, or rather cobalt and lithium?

        As a disclaimer, I try to consider stuff. Unfortunately, I have no particularly positive view of some government/corporate patsies attempting monopolization (I’m heavily opinionated). https://www.eenews.net/stories/1060109321

      • Oh I should mention cobalt and lithium sourcing, of course having some relation to gold/uranium mining and slave labour through chinese proxy operations.

    • Additionally, I’m a bit of a weirdo, insane and stuff like that. But it’s basically at the harbinger, crossing the rubicon sort of stage now, and people are slow, conveniently slow.
