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

The Arctic Council (AC) and NATO aims conflict with no climate change mitigation

Given the new report on NATO expansion in Finland and Sweden, we see calls for all signatories to abandon the Council while Russia heads it (for the next year and a half).

I checked the Arctic Council WWF website that had an article about the great work that was going on but the article was pulled (Giving 404 error) and no image saved (or it was removed) from the Wayback Machine archives.

Given the huge issues (wildfires, Fossil fuel extraction, radioactive materials dumped on sea bed, Cod migration towards Russia etc) that abound with this sensitive area, it comes as some surprise that Cold War rhetoric and associated PR management has left Climate Change on the back burner.

President Putin has denied man made climate change ( https://bellona.org/news/arctic/2017-04-trump-like-friend-of-putin-tells-him-climate-change-isnt-man-made ) and the other AC countries acted as a rebuff for sensible Climate policies against Fossil Fuel lobbyists and politicians that have little understanding of the science and potential impacts of warming, floods and increased wind speeds etc.

No media or scientist is drawing attention to this because of effective attacks causing self censorship or because of political pressure. There has not been any figures for CO2 budget for the Ukraine war for instance (8 years and the recent months since the latest development). Same could be said for any other ongoing wars (Saudi, Turkey etc etc).

Just what are our priorities?

Have a great Climate Change Friday and follow @gretathunberg and friends

  1. Some on the left who say, “Well, at least Trump wouldn’t flirt with nuclear war over Ukraine,” are doubtless wrong. My guess is, if Trump still resided in the white house, he would have nuked somebody by now, given his remarks, early in the war, that the U.S. should bomb Russia with planes camouflaged as Chinese. If that so-called plan wouldn’t result in an exchange of nuclear missiles, I don’t know what would.
