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

The absolutely UNAFFORDABLE NUCLEAR industry – theme for June 2020

How many $trillions is the American government putting into the nuclear industry, especially nuclear weapons?  With the USA essentially bankrupt, and the pandemic ushering it into an even more dire financial state –  it’s a joke!   Or, it would be a joke, if not for the hardship, suffering, poverty, brought upon its people, by this foolish financial extravaganza on behalf of a corrupt, dangerous and useless industry.

Russia, China, UK France, and soon Middle Eastern nations mindlessly follow this suicidal nuclear path.

The banking industry and other financial institutions join in the frenzy to feed this rapacioua evil of the nuclear industry.

Sadly so many jobs and community “benefits” are attached to it.  It is going to take an enormous effort of brains, integrity, some sacrifice – to unravel the nuclear financial mess,.

But the world had better start unravelling it.  Even without the worst outcome –  nuclear war, this foul nuclear industry is going to devastate the finances of nations. and prevent action  to stall global heating.

In this Covid-19 pandemic era, it is absolutely time to phase nuclear out, and help populations to transition to a cleaner world, where public money is spent on the things that people really need.

    The Psychopath in Chief

    I spent hundreds of hours with Donald Trump to ghost-write ‘The Art of the Deal.’ I now see a deeper meaning behind his behavior.

    Why are there so many fires around nuclear sites? It is because the area is saturated with extremely pyrophoric radionuclides. This recent fire at Hanford went on to burn 9000 acres.

    Pyrophorics can ignite spontaneously. They burn white hot, like the thorium, in the old mantle lanterns. Radionuclides are by far and above, the strongest pyrophorics known to man. They include most classes of radionuclides: actinides like thorium, uranium, transuranics like plutonium, alkali metals like cesium 137. They are highly reactive, in trace amounts. No media attention about it  at all, except in episodic incindents like WIPP and the plutonium fires ar Rocky Flats. No mention of pyrophorics at Santa Susana or INL.
    Nasty wildfires are common in moist industrial areas now. Especially in nuclear countries. In populated areas on the coasts of Australia, where people in cars, burn masses of hyrocabons, with uranium, radium and thorium traces in them.  They also mine and export large amounts of Uranium in Australia. There are chemical factories, petroleum on the coast of Australia Refineries that create natural radioclide waste with, high concentrations of heavy metals and the natural radionuclides thorium, uranium, radium.
    In the French Riviera and Greece. California. Scandanavia. China. Chernobyl. Japan. Wildfires that are serious threats to populations.
    There is also a great amount of uranium residue, in the environment from fracking.
    There are fires around  reactors and other nuclear facilities.  There was a major fire in the Ukraine, by a hi-level nuclear waste-containment facility.

    There was a fire, at an Idaho low-level nuclear waste facility,  not   associated with INL.

    That facility was recently closed down.  There was a similar fire  in an eastern Washington low level nuclear waste processing facility, that closed it down.
    You do not hear much about radionuclide-pyrophoriocity and fires or wildfires.
    Reactors emit pyrophoric radionuclides in  water starved deserts like Palos verdes in arizona.
    There is  uranium mining, nuclear fuel production depleted uranium and isotope production, from nuclear waste. Massive flintlocks for drought and climate change related, wildfires.

    Some of the recent, worst,  wildfires are common around nuclear reservations in Russia, siberia and the USA. The wildfires in those areas, put large amounts of radionuclides into the air .

      Besides settiing up for a massivevnuke arms race and tactical nukes and proobable nuclear war trump has licensed reactors that should be shut. He has started unranium mining. He has deregulated nuclear reactor specs and supervision to the point of guarenteed nuclear catastrophe. He has not shorn up any reactors since fukushima.

  5. yur buddy at mining awareness supports a white racist woman groper who is against decent healthcare in america. Biden is a demented old, pronuclear phoney.

    Mining awareness supports shooting an unarmed blackman to death because he had a criminal records.

    It supports propaganda from voice of america, which is partially controlled by the cia. It slandered the only antinuclear candidate sanders .
    It supports the old, neoliberal facist-light biden. Biden supports an ongoing cold war and nuclear buildup . Biden supports mass incarceration and created the bill that has led to america having 25 percent of the worlds enslaved and regular prison population. Biden supports the continuation of a hideous medical system. a hideous medical system A system that keeps covid growing. because people are afraid to go to the doctor and get tested or treated for covid and many other tretable ailments. Biden supported a fascist coup in honduras that sent millions of refugees pouring out of Honduras.. supported the iraq war. supported the wallstreet bailout in 2008 that has left 10s of millions impoverished in america. biden supported the iraq war and continuing abominations in iraq the depleted uranium nuclear war there. supports debt bondage, thru banks with its bankrupcy bill. Biden supports encircling china, russia, iran, venezuela . Biden supports more nuclear
    weapons buildups. it is unconscionable.

    joe biden is sexist groper that won through rigged primary

    Barack obama was a fraud who endorsed biden. he went with the dnc to rig the election when it was clear sanders qould win.
    And here we have Barack Obama praising the US role in the #Iraq war; a war that was launched on a pack of lies; a war that killed over a million civilians and fueled the rise of ISIS.

    Obama on Iraq: “That’s part of what makes us special as Americans. Unlike the old empires, we don’t make these sacrifices for territory or for resources. We do it because it’s right.”

    It’s stunning how many people continue to glorify this war criminal.

    joe biden the sexist groper

    The Hill

    Joe Biden: “You ought to marry into a family with 5 or more sisters… You know why that’s the reason? One of them always loves you.”

    How can you watch billionaires grow their wealth by $584,000,000,000 during a pandemic that throws 44 million Americans into unemployment and not think the system needs to fundamentally change?

    You can’t really tell the difference between the parties anymore because of people like biden. They both support Oligarchy, imperialism, nuclear power. Nuclear arms. They support profits over people, mass incarceration, nuclear power, big oil, healthcare for the privileged, trade deals that hurt workers, mass surveillance, deporting immigrants and cheating us out of free and fair elections.

    Worst of all they do not care about trump

  6. Voice of america VOA was always subtly controlled by the militarists and natoists and cia. Now that it is controlled by Trump, it is racist and more pronuclear cold war than ever. Why would anyone have anything, to do w that garbage?
