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

This week in nuclear news

Some bits of good news. I’ve been ignoring energy sources other than nuclear. But that’s hard to do this week. I’ve come to at least 3 very positive stories: Germany produces 40GW of solar, and much of it exported to other countries. Great Lakes wind power could give Ontario to 100% renewable energy.   Bristol solar farm connects directly to the grid

ClimateRecord low Antarctic sea ice is another alarming sign the ocean’s role as climate regulator is changing

    There 900 in that camp, in pheonix, and there are 20 times that number of homeless, in pheonix. Pheonix is medium sized city. There are milions of homeless in the usa. Bidens inflation reduction act turns, billions of dollats of public owned works and housing, over to private ownership. Rent and everything else is already outrageous.
    Biden is a conservative, neolibeleberal, MILITARIST, fascist, warmonger. Trump is a blatantly insane, racist who would put most of the usa into the streets. The usa is a hopeless, shithole with daily mass shootings.
    Bidens raising of interest rates, means flat housing sales. It means several banks failing. The rising interest rates and corporate price gouging, means lower wages and more inflation. The usa is a dystopian right-wing shithole, with starlkley rising poverty rates, incarceration rates, and grusomely decreasing rate in life-expectancy for all ages of people. . Only the most incompetent, vicious, deranged old psychopaths are allowed to run for president
