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

To 15 June – climate and nuclear news

I scratch around for good news on climate. Alex Smith, of Radio Ecoshock, notes that ‘several long-time climate bloggers and Facebook activists are “retiring” to their private lives.’ He quotes one: “I’m no longer interested in awakening the masses. The masses made it clear that they are not interested.”

The grand old man of coastal science Dr. Orrin Pilkey warns: start withdrawing from the coast-line now, or wait for the coming panic. As Australia’s government promotes coal mining and coal power, and avoids any action on climate change, every State and Territory in Australia is being  hit with record heat.  Decentralising the energy supply system – renewables are creating a new world order.

On the nuclear scene, the New Nuclear Arms Race remains the biggest threat in 2019. Meanwhile, as the nuclear industry fails economically, the mainstream media continues to pour out articles about “new nukes” – Small and Medium Nuclear Reactors (SMRs)Molten salt reactors. – articles that read like straight handouts from the nuclear lobby.onal Park to get $216 million boost.

Space travel? The human body is not compatible with ionising radiation.

Japan, the U.S. and France failing in their efforts to sell nuclear reactors overseas, (or at home).

UK. UK to use Regulatory Asset Base (RAB) funding for Wylfa nuclear plant, exposing consumers to financial risk?  UK’s nuclear energy renaissance derailed, as Japanese companies step back from nuclear investment? Hitachi to post $2 billion special loss, will suspend UK nuclear power operations. Hitachi looks certain to cancel its plans for a £16bn nuclear power station in Wales. Increasing major cracks in Hunterston nuclear reactors: call to close them permanently.

USA.   State of Washington opposes federal plan to reclassify Hanford nuclear waste. State of Oregon not happy with federal govt plan to declassify some high level nuclear wastes.  Iowa Utilities Board OK’s Alliant ending nuclear power purchase: Duane Arnold nuclear plant to shut down. “Nuclear modernization” a euphemism that ushers in a new and dangerous global nuclear arms race. USA Dept of Energy again confirms its plans to use SRS plutonium for nuclear weapons.

JAPAN. Funding deadlock looks set to sink Japan’s last overseas nuclear project.  Japan abandoning ambition to sell nuclear power reactors to Turkey.   Major financial group in Japan bans lending to those developing, making or possessing nuclear weapons.  Radiation doses underestimated in study of city in Fukushima. Japan Atomic Power Co. (JAPC) denies granting local prior consent for Tokai reactor restart

OCEANIA. Nuclear weapons tests in the Enewetak Atol: rising sea levels add to the toxic legacy.

RUSSIA. Russian blogger reveals photo of venting cloud of radioactive dust from 1987 nuclear test gone wrong.  Russia might revive its fearful automatic nuclear weapons launch system.

  1. WHY DOES TEPCO CONTINUE TO EXIST?

    TEPCO IS REOPENING THE Kashiwazaki-Kariwa COMPLEX THAT IS BUILT ON EARTHQUAKE FAULTS

    1. IT IS THE LARGEST REACTOR COMPLEX IN THE WORLD

    2. IT HAS 7 REACTORS

    3. IT IS ON ACTIVE EARTHQUAKE FAULTS

    4.THE REACTORS ARE FUKUSHIMA TYPE BOILING REACTORS

    5. IT IS PROBABLY DAMAGED FROM THE FUKUSHIMA QUAKE

    Donald Trump don’t care
    The conspiracy nuts don’t care
    The trumptroll fascists like the STOCK don’t care

    What has this all been about Majia? Please answer this question because i think u care.

    Grassroots people like the ones who closed San Onofre the ones fighting to close reactors in America are Called Social Justice Warriors and communists by evil bastards like FUKUshima exposed and Dana Durnford and Radchick and the stock and the other fake-antinuke trumptrolls on the interne SO REDNECK ASSHOLES AND CORPORATE COPS HAVE NO TROUBLE HARRASSING GRASSROOT ANTINUCLEAR ADVOCATES

    WHAT A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT

    Local GRASSROOTS ANTINUCLEAR GROUPS ARE LARGELY APOLITICAL

    WORKING TO KEEP THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT from classifying the worst RADIOACTIVE CRAP in the Universe as low level SO THEY CAN ABANDON HANFORD AND PUT SHODDY HOLTEC CASKS ON CONCRETE PADS IN AMERICA

  2. First they will come for the progressives and many people will not speak out—
    Even progressives

    Then they will come for the trade unionists, and people will not speak out—
    Because they are not union members.

    Then they will come for the Jews, blacks, women college professors, journalists because people will not speak out—
    Because they are none of the above

    Then they will come for the rest because there will be no one left to speak for for us

  3. This is what is really happening in america since the 1960s.  The reactors, the bomb tests, the massive nuclear waste piles and problems. There have  been 10 fold increases in female related fertility problems in america
    In hysterectomys in uterine fibroids, in ovarian cysts, in polycystic ovarian, ovarian cancers, endometriosis in miscarriages n america.
    Female INFERTILITY ON THE RISE
    Is Infertility is on the ri According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in a survey performed in 2010 and recently published:

    The number of women ages 15-44 with an impaired fecundity (impaired ability to get pregnant or carry a baby to term) is 6.7 million
    Percent of women ages 15-44 with an impaired ability to conceive is 10.9%
    Number of married women ages 15-44 that are infertile (unable to get pregnant after at least 12 consecutive months of unprotected sex with husband) is 1.5 million
    Percent of married women ages 15-44 that are infertile is 6.0%
    Number of women ages 15-44 who have ever used infertility services is 7.4 million
    Source of information: (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/fertile.htm

    That means female infertility in america has gone up .

    Who the heck in america will allow studies on this in america? 

    We know male sterility and decreasing sperm count is on the rise.
    https://www.newsweek.com/2017/09/22/male-infertility-crisis-experts-663074.html%3Famp%3D1

    The bastards know what RADIONUCLIDE fallout and gamma rays do to male fertility and sperm count from marching  the atomic veterans  out to have their balls irradiated during nuclear bomb tests and the subsequent reports on it.

    The female reproductive system is extremely delicate from a physiological point of views.

    The mechanisms for female infertility are many.

    INFERTILITY IN MEN AND WOMEN FROM NUCLEAR INSANITY on the rise

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

    Japan and Belaruses fertility have dropped off a cliff since the RADIONUCLIDE floods from fukushima and Chernobyl respectively as Dr. Busby Points out. It is from the  decreasing male fertility proven by military and nuclear medical scientists from bomb testing veterans and Chernobyl.
    It is from decreasing female fertility from the toxic damage of radionuclides to the female reproductive tract and miscarriages that lead to future infertility.
    A double whammy that will indeed be detrimental to human survival along with all the other deadly consequences of the flood of radionuclides nucleoape humans are unleashing on the earth.

    For 60 years in merica they have blamed skyrocketing cancer rates on people’s genetic inclinations personal habits. Any real studies of the most carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic substances on earth leading to cancer or female  fertility issues are censored or poopooed or purposely blocked by the United States science and academic  establishments that are funded by the DoD, doe, mics.Blame the victims.

  4. Th nuclear shills are paid. They attack people for no reason but personal financial gain.

    We are delicate, biochemically sustained organisms. The nulearists cannot even find a reasonable way to dispose of their incredibly-deadly unearthly High level RADIONUCLIDE waste. They have to lie about it.

    Environmental opponents press their case, as waste licensing hearings loom in Southwest
    On Dec. 27, 2018, Beyond Nuclear’s legal counsel (Diane Curran of Washington, DC, and Mindy Goldstein and Caroline Reiser of Emory University Turner Environmental Law Clinic in Atlanta, GA) filed our first federal court papers in opposition to both the Holtec International/Eddy-Lea Energy Alliance (ELEA), New Mexico, as well as the Waste Control Specialists/Interim Storage Partners (WCS/ISP), Texas centralized interim storage facilities (CISFs) for high-level radioactive waste (HLRW). Beyond Nuclear’s contention is that both U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licensing proceedings violate the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, as Amended. Beyond Nuclear’s legal counsel, as well as our allies (Alliance for Environmental Strategies, Don’t Waste Michigan et al., and Sierra Club, represented by legal counsel Nancy Simmons of Albuquerque, NM, Terry Lodge of Toledo, OH, and Wally Taylor of Cedar Rapids, IA, respectively), are preparing for Jan. 23, 2019 NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hearings, to be held in Albuquerque, regarding the Holtec/ELEA CISF proceeding. Meanwhile, Lodge and Taylor, on behalf of Don’t Waste MI et al. and Sierra Club, have responded to WCS/ISP motions to strike portions of their interventions against the CISF targeted at TX. All this is but the latest resistance to the environmental injustice of dumping 213,600 metric tons of commercial irradiated nuclear fuel in the Hispanic borderlands of TX and NM (the two CISFs are but 40 miles apart). If opened, one and/or the other of the CISFs would unleash large-scale, high-risk, HLRW trucks, trains, and barges (see infrared photo of a HLRW rail shipment, above right) through a large number of American cities, through most states, and the vast majority of U.S. congressional districts. For more information, see Beyond Nuclear’s Centralized Storage and Waste Transportation website sections.
