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

2019 – The challenges to address climate change and remove the nuclear threats- theme for January 19

Climate and nuclear activists have lots to do in 2019. The IPCC report emphasises the need for a complete transition to clean energy, the need for people to put real pressure on governments. This video (partially an ad for an optical company) gives a good rundown on the report and its recommendations

Why the IPCC Report is so Scary

It’s astonishing, that with the global horror of nuclear radioactive trash piling up in USA, UK, Russia, Japan…. with no solution in sight,  governments still promote the nuclear industry. And with the “Doomsday Clock” at 2 minutes to 12, it is an urgent need to stop the nuclear industry.

It’s harder for people in totalitarian countries, Russia, China, –  to learn the truth about nuclear power – its diseconomics as well as its dangers. It’s still hard for people in democratic countries to grasp the facts, as mainstream media, and even much of the alternative media, blindly swallow the propaganda lies about nuclear power being “clean” and “the solution to climate change”.

The intrinsic connection between “peaceful” nuclear power and nuclear weapons manufacture has been clearly recognised. So this now remains the main reason for governments to promote nuclear power at home, while they scramble to try to sell the uneconomic technology overseas.

As with climate change, the challenge is for people to pressure governments, and to elect candidates who are not in the pocket of the nuclear industry.

Our nuclear free moment

As with climate change, many groups and individuals around the world are spreading the word on how to counteract industry propaganda, how to resist polluting developments. They are supporting indigenous land rights, social justice issues, and networking globally to close down polluting industries, and develop clean energy and energy conservation. The U.N Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty, with 69 nations already signed up now shows that nuclear weapons are morally unacceptable, and shows the way to a nuclear weapons-free world.

  1. Trump, Perry, Holtec and cronies see a lot of money can be made by reclassififying the most dangerous radionuclides in the Universe. Radionuclides like Plutonium, Strontium 90, Cobalt 60, Californium as low level waste! Saves the government money at places like Paducah. And Hanford! They can also make billions or trillions, taking in the world hi level nuclear trash! They can store it in Holtecs. Dangerous steel casks above ground all over the United States in huge govt designated waste sites! In New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Arizona, Wyoming, Kansas, Montana!

    Trump Perry and Bill gates also see big money in a scheme, to build thousands of gates molten salt reactors in America by further deregulating nuclear and having the taxpayers finance Gates!

  2. THIS IS THE STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMELS BACK WITH FUKUSHIMA AND WORLDS CATASTROPHIC FLOOD OF RADIONUCLIDE POLLUTION AND HIGH LEVEL CONTAMINATION THAT NOW ENGULFS THE NUCLEOAPE COUNTRIES
    STERILITY IN MEN AND WOMEN FROM NUCLEAR INSANITY

    https://dunrenard.wordpress.com/2019/01/07/the-after-fukushima-and-japans-declining-birthrate-japans-demographics-a-national-crisis/

    I SAW IT IN ONE OF THE MOST NUCLEAR CONTAMINATED TOWNs IN THE WORLD IN THE UNITED STATE IN THE WESTERN US.

    A place WHERE PEOPLE STILL LIVE .

    A REGULAR PLAYGROUND OF THE RICH AND MIDDLE CLASS AMERICA

    MANY AREAS IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES, ARE FAR MORE RADIONUCLIDE CONTAMINATED THAN THE WORSE PLACES IN RUSSIA. THAT IS BECAUSE AMERICA IS A COUNTRY OF BIG LIES, INSANITY AND EXTREME BULLSHIT. THE ULTIMATE INVERTED TOTALITARIAN STATE AND OVERTLY TOTALITARIAN NUCLEAR STATE

    THE RUSSIANS AT LEAST HAD ENOUGH SENSE TO DO MOST OF THEIR NUCLEAR DETONATIONS AND DIRTY WORK IN FAR OFF KASAKHSTAN

    NOT IN GOOD OL USA NO BUDDY!

    UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR DETONATIONS BY ASPEN COLORADO PLAYGROUND OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS

    MULTIPLE NUCLEAR MELTOWNS AT SANTA SUSANA ABOVE MALIBU AND BEVERLY HILLS. THEN WILDFIRES TO SPREAD THE SHIT ALL OVER SOCAL.

    Hundreds of tons of the worst high level radionuclides in the universe stored in the worst most flimsy containment possible on a ritzy beach by San Diego. That is how stupid Americans really are including the most rich and famous

    A WHOLE MOUNTAIN OF THE WORST NUCLEAR SHIT IN THE UNIVERSE AT LOS ALAMOS . IT IS RIGHT ADJASCENT TO THE HOME OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS: SANTE FE NM. NOW THE GLAMOROUS SANTA FE NMS WATER SUPPLY IS CONTAMINATED BY AMERICIUM AND PLUTONIUM
    STERLITY RATES IN MEN AND WOMEN AND CANCER RATES ARE OFF THE SCALE.

    GLAMOROUS BOULDER COLORADO CONTAMINATED BY PLUTONIUM FROM ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL

    GLAMOROUS LAS VEGAS WHERE A THOUSAND NUCLEAR BOMBS WERE DETONATED . NUCLEAR BOMB CONTAMINATION THAT IRRADIATED THE WORLD AND TURNED HALF THE WESTERN US INTO DOWNWINDER AREAS

    THE WEST US WHERE SO MANY DESCENTDANTS ARE STERILE FROM NUCLEAR POLLUTION FROM NUCLEAR WASTE, BOMB DETONATIONS, URANIUM GARBAGE

    HANFORD IN GLAMOROUS WASHINGTON STATE THAT IS POLLUTING THE SHIT PUT OF THE GLAMOROUS COLUMBIA RIVER AND GLAMOROUS PORTLAND OREGON WITH THE WORST HILEVEL NUCLEAR WASTE POSSIBLE.

    ST LOUIS MO WHERE PEOPLE IN. THE MOST EXCLUSIVE NEIGHBORHOODS BREATH IN RADIOACTIVE SOOT AND ASH FROM A LOCAL MASSIVELY RADIONUCLIDE CONTAMINATED LANDFILL ON FIRE DAILY

    THERE ARE THE 11 SHITTY OLD TRITIUM LEAKING NUCLEAR REACTORS IN ILLINOIS MAKING PEOPLE STERILE AND SICK WITH CANCER

    THE SAME IS TRUE ON EXCLUSIVE LONG ISLAND, IN FLORIDA IN MOST STATES EAST OF THE MISSISISSIPPI

    THIS IS HAPPENING IN THE UNITED STATES TOO PEOPLE SO DO NOT FOOL YOUR SELVES

    The After Fukushima and Japan’s Declining Birthrate, Japan’s Demographics a National Crisis
    Japan, Nuclear, Radiation
    From Chris Busby:
    Japan’s birth rate was declining but gradually, as was the Belarus birthrate. The rate at which it was declining was low. Then after Fukushima it fell of the cliff.
    I made this graph from Japan vital statistics data on the web.
    In 2005 it was 8.32. So there is a sharp fall in the rate after Fukushima. Same thing happened in Belarus after Chernobyl. Look at the Bandashevsky’s after Chernobyl birth rate graph.
    It was expected What I am saying is that the fall in birthrate in Japan is a Fukushima effect in the same way as the fall in birthrate in Belrus was a Chernobyl effect.

    Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe describes demographics as a national crisis
    Japan suffered its biggest population decline on record this year, according to new figures that underline the country’s losing battle to raise its birth rate.
    The number of births fell to its lowest since records began more than a century ago, the health and welfare ministry said, soon after parliament approved an immigration bill that will pave the way for the arrival of hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers to address the worst labour shortage in decades.
    The ministry estimated 921,000 babies will have been born by the end of 2018 – 25,000 fewer than last year and the lowest number since comparable records began in 1899. It is also the third year in a row the number of births has been below one million.
    Combined with the estimated number of deaths this year – a postwar high of 1.37 million – the natural decline of Japan’s population by 448,000 is the biggest ever.
    The data suggests the government will struggle to reach its goal of raising the birth rate – the average number of children a woman has during her lifetime – to 1.8 by April 2026. The current birth rate stands at 1.43, well below the 2.07 required to keep the population stable.
    Crisis
    The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, has described Japan’s demographics as a national crisis and promised to increase childcare places and introduce other measures to encourage couples to have more children.
    But the number of children on waiting lists for state-funded daycare increased for the third year in a row last year, raising doubts over his plans to provide a place for every child by April 2020.
    Japanese people have an impressive life expectancy – 87.2 years for women and 81.01 years for men – which experts attribute to regular medical examinations, universal healthcare coverage and, among older generations, a preference for Japan’s traditional low-fat diet.
    But the growing population of older people is expected to place unprecedented strain on health and welfare services in the decades to come. Some of those costs will be met by a controversial rise in the consumption (sales) tax, from 8 per cent to 10 per cent, next October.
    Earlier this year the government said 26.1 million – or just over 20 per cent of the total population of 126.7 million – were aged 70 and over.
    The number of centenarians, meanwhile, had risen to 69,785 as of September this year, with women making up 88% of the total.
    Japan has the highest proportion of older people – or those aged 65 and over – in the world, followed by Italy, Portugal and Germany.
    The National Institute of Population and Social Security Research in Tokyo estimated that more than 35 per cent of Japanese will be aged 65 or over by 2040.

  3. This article says”it’s harder for people in China to learn about nuclear power.”
    I read in Nuclear-news.net recently, that people in China took to the streets over nuclear power. Two Chinese cities protested over nuclear power, forcing the Chinese govt. To break its nuclear plans w bill gates. Whole cities have protested in China before over nuclear fuel reprocessing plants in their area. Other protests have occurred over other nuclear issues.

    In America they arrest and prosecute American citizens and indigenous people, who protest against huge dirty oil pipelines on their lands, they do not want. The corporations and government uses police and police orgs to infiltrate the groups. They do the same again antifrackers.

    They persecute the few who do not want the dirtiest, most unsafe nuclear trash close to their towns. In China and other places what trump is doing w nuclear their would be massive protests. Not in america.

    There have not been any such protests in america in 40 years or more. Most people you meet in the streets are totally ignorant about the dangers of nuclear. They think it is safe and good. Even post fukushima. There were a couple of liberal college professor I talked to recently, who are pronuclear.
