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

TODAY. Shouldn’t we all get out of nuclear, before the next nuclear failure (whether it be financial, security, accident, pollution ………)?

Today the global military-industrial-political-corporate -media is awash with its sorrow and regret, and recriminations against Germany’s action in shutting down nuclear power.

However, I thought that CNN gave the whole story a pretty fair coverage, concluding with:

There will be a moment of decision as to whether nuclear really has a future”

Otherwise, the main media felt obligated to express concerns of the nuclear lobby – that Germany is in the thrall of the evil Green Party, that nuclear can save the climate, that renewable industries can’t really succeed, that the public demands that nuclear stations stay open

Meanwhile the G7 countries are now going to discuss “the essential contribution” of nuclear energy to achieving climate and energy security!!

All this going on as the IAEA’s nuclear security chief warns that  ‘we are living on borrowed time’ after two landmine explosions near Europe’s largest atomic power station in Ukraine.

Just who is telling the truth, and who is lying about nuclear power?

Is nuclear power really clean as the industry claims?

really safe?

really effective against climate change?

really affordable? really a good investment?

really has no problem to worry about with its radioactive wastes.

really welcomed by the public?

The final shutdown of Germany’s nuclear power has led CNN to ask that remarkable question – “whether nuclear really has a future”

  1. As the Germans have said “Atomcraft, nein danka,” Nuclear Power, No Thanks. As Germany is ending it’s use of nuclear power now, so should the rest of the world. We have seen Eisenhowers “Atoms for Peace,” turn into “Atoms for War,” as both Pakistan and India, both have nuclear weapons. Nuclear power is too dangerous, too expensive and totally unnecessary for our energy needs. If you think we need nuclear power including these new hawked SMR’s “small modular reactors,” to solve our climate change crisis, you are totally wrong. They are more expensive not safe, they still produce dangerous radioactive waste that must be kept out of the environment for thousands of years and we don’t have a safe, permanent storage site yet. Has everybody become amenisic to the Fukishima, Cherynoble, and Three Mile Island disasters? Besides, no new nuclear plants have been approved or constructed in the last 30 years in the US. We were told in the 50’s and 60’s that “Atomic power would be too cheap to meter.” Nothing could be further from the truth.

    We have the technology and natural resources now to meet our energy needs with a combination of solar, wind, hydroelectric, fuel cell, biomass, geothermal, tidal, ocean current, conservation, using more efficient machines, vehicles, industrial processes, recycling, retrofitting buildings, battery and capacitor storage for our energy needs. All we lack is the political will to do so, because the profit addicted nucler, fossil fuel and investor owned, private electrical utilies, have bought the votes of our elected leaders from both parties in our Congress and State Legislatures. Go to and for the plans and the technology to transition to a renewable energy economy. We will not “starve and freeze in the dark,” nor “wreck our economy in the process.”
