Working for a world free from nuclear power and nuclear weapons. This is a great website with lots of updated information. With what we are seeing that is unfolding in Japan we need to pressure our Governments around the world to stop the insanity.

Yes, I signed but I fear nothing will stop the construction of yet another NUKE plant on the Texas coast. yes, On the coast - all coastal areas are unstable, I will not bore you and explain why, just think of the tectonic plate of land separations that have occurred over time. A coast line developed from those separations of plates. Why not just admit this has nothing to do with human safety and every thing to do with corporate profit.

Dang David! UMMM what oh what will American do without NUKES??? UMMM Gotta invest in SOLAR MAYBE, or get a mass transit that people will HAVE TO RIDE insead of all of their CADDIES?!?!?! The gas here is $4.20/gal for my stupid car I purchased in 1997 being an 8 needs GAS..don't know what I was thinking bought it because of the stupid color at the time, distressed I guess...but now Here in California I see all of the Wind Cycles out near the desert....also, there are so many people where I live that have Solar Panels on their property I LOVE IT...California is really going green I do believe!!! Thought we are totally in the Bankrupt stage!

10 PERSISTENT MYTHS ABOUT NUCLEAR POWER

We have the technology now to implement solar, wind, wave, and others to replace nuclear power and coal both of which are dangerous, polluting and not worth the true costs. All we need is a country determined to mount an intensive forward push against the nuclear and fossil fuel industries and toward energy that will serve us and safeguard our health and environment.

Thank you, Linda!

If watching the devastation (still continuing to its max; and what it will reach is fearful) in Japan hasn't sent a message to "our" leaders (as most sensible people have already realized) -- THEN THEY NEED TO TAKE THEIR GREEDY BUTTS OUTTA HERE (and take their corporate buddies with them) before they destroy this world, and the one we hope to leave to our future generations!

Because, that type of blind ignorance is not anything we need to pay as "representatives."

David.....are you serious?!!! You leave some good articles on Care2 and then you come out with that statement!
Honestly, I'm speechless. Not sure if it is because I'm tired, which I am, but more because I am simply amazed at the statement. I went over to the link that Sioux mentioned and was also flabergasted. Unbelievable. Is the best I can do at this point. Good night and I hope I don't have nightmares of supposed intelligent people that push nuclear power or think it is somehow ok.

Noted, thank you Dandelion. Kit, what you mention about the instability of the Texas coast suggests the possibility of future disasters that are too horrible to even think about. Imagine what might happen if a nuke plant is built in an area like that, and it gets hit by a hurricane equivalent to Katrina or perhaps worse if there were ever an earthquake and tsunami like Japan just experienced. I hope you are wrong about there being no way to stop construction of a nuike facility there, but if corporations and their friends in Congress have their way you are probably right. As you say it's all about corporate profits rather than human safety which the corporates wouldn't give two toots of a horn for.. If only we could get people unglued from their tv's long enough and care about things that really matter .....

For the ones who still do not wish to see the disasters this has done get aware,..before its too late.. for all sanity and peace and preserving the world I say Ban this stupidity... man has no way in his limits to understand nor be prepared of the lurking dangers it with holds and no way can man stop the greed of its investors..
time we go beyond the smell of the roses and take a good look at the thorns..

Dandelion, you must forgive David, he has been snorting coal ash while camping out in the back yard of a reactor. It's not his fault, he was told it was okay by the utility company and his local elected officials. Once the half life wears off, he will be his usual self again. HIs otherwise broad thinkding has been temporarily blocked.

If they close our nuke plant in Bulgaria we must live without electricity. Nuke electricity is cheep. The winter in Bulgaria is very cold. We have solar panels for the rich (not enough sun in Bulgaria), wave generators (people can't sleep because the noise), water power plants (ecological problems). We have not own gas or oil fields. There is a big coal plant near the town where I live. Sometimes the pollution is very high and we must stay at home, but in the plant are working thousands of people. The families in the polluted area say: "Yes, the pollution is terrible, but better sick than starving. Don't close the plant! We want to live!" This is the sad reality Sheryl.

thanks for the article Dandelion. Signed and noted. Yep!! radiation levels have reached our Canadian Pacific shores also. We are doused by it through rain, acid rain no less. Question: We know what it can do to us, What can it do to the millions of sea life that have been exposed to its levels in the last few weeks??? This environment is already under siege by man and other pollutants. Mother Nature will not be very happy with us after this one. I fear her retaliation!!

My dear friend who left a comment that for her Country of Bulgaria there are no options. I truly believe that there are other options but that our Countries choose not to persue those options because the Nuclear Power Industry push their agenda as the only option.

I do not want anyone to freeze, I'm more compassionate than that, but on the fip side, I don't want people, the animals, fish, plants, dying either from radiation poisoning. Once the radiation is in the environment it has an extremely long time to continue to do damage, it doesn't go away overnight.

I've read and seen some amazing new technologies that can provide fuel to keep homes warm around the world. To run our cars on, to use to cook with, and although one by itself may not do it all, in combination to each other, all bases will be covered. We truly need to move away from the insanity and go towards the new and great inventions that now exist, that are green technologies.

To view only one of these methods please go to this link:

I know by experience how dangerous a nuke plant can be. After the Chernobyl disaster I had a very hard day (terrific headache and vomiting) because I was out of office. A pregnant colleague of mine gave birth to a girl with the one leg shorter...

Yes, they are many new technologies and some are Bulgarian inventions. 20 years ago a Bulgarian man invented machine to turn water in fuel. Some progress? - no, because the investment in energy sources here is a dirty policy. Years ago there was a great pressure from the EU countries to close our nuke plant. You know why? Because there was a French project to build a nuke plant in Romania, several kilometers northern from our plant! The Bulgarian Greens stopped the fight because they was used to defend foreign interests. In my town there was a great resistance to close our coal plant. I signed the petition too. Now there is a second coal plant. Who is the owner? The secret initiator of the protest - an American company! Let the "aborigines" of the Balkans die! A second lesson for the Greens. The conduct of the ambassador of the U.S.A. in Bulgaria is beyond bearing - like a General governor. That sort of arrogance was unbelievable during the socialistic era... Of course the Bulgarians are not stupid - everybody has some ideas about clean energy for his home. But I speak about the energy for our plants - not only for our homes.

It is dirty politics, it is what it is all about. It isn't the first time I've heard of many ways of converting water or something into fuel, the patterns get bought and sat upon, the inventor ends up dead and his ideas on paper become missing. I hope that the Bulgarian man at least didn't get killed because of his idea. They are ruthless, and I am ashamed of so many in my own Country that disrespect others around the world, but then they do not even respect their own Countrymen. They see the money line their pockets and that is all they care about.
Is why they would like to keep the masses cold, hungry, ill, and confused, so that we can't or won't be able to stand up to them.

Thank you for your additional input......around the world, those who are the poorest are most abused. Those who have so little the greedy want to take the last crumb away from them. They are ruthless and walk in this life with black hearts, empty of any compassion for others, only see what they want and take it.

I told you the latest I heard last week, which was worse than what Rachel Maddock said. Why would that be? I didn't realize how many accidents you had in America, even if they weren't as bad as Three Mile Plant, or whatever it was called. My mind isn't working as well. But it looks pretty bad in Japan, and to have 2 plants on the same faultline as the one that caused the quake in NZ and then in Japan is absolutely rediculous. They should shut those down straight away with seeing what's happening in Japan right now!

Ian left this on another thread but said it could be moved. So I have added it to this thread.

Saturday April 2, 2011, 10:59 pm
First, apologies - this isn't the right place for this, but I'm ill at the moment and can't stay at the comp long enough to find the right thread. Anyone who wants is welcome to move this. Seems they've been lying their asses off about Fukashima, folks (and other things). Here's some stuff you should see from healthfreedom.org:

There is now no question that I131, which serves as a marker, just a marker, mind you, for other products of radiation, is now being found in every place that it is looked for in the US. The Governor of Pennsylvania, allowing as how 33,000% the background radiation level, and the allowable US government level of I131 was being found in rainwater in his state said, 'Hey! Don't Worry! Be Happy!' "No one drinks rainwater so there is no threat to human health!" http://www.centredaily.com/2011/03/28/v-print/2610598/governor-corbett-says-public-water.html

Meanwhile, in San Francisco, the level of this marker compound, which is a problem on its own, but is indicative of all the other radioactive compounds coming to you from the reactors as well, are 18000% above the legal drinking water limits (Don't Worry! Be Happy! No one drinks tap water!?) http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2011/04/01/breaking-radiation-san-francisco-18100-drinking-water-limits-13014/

Still no threat to the public, of course, while Cesium 137 and Tellurium 152 are also being found in water and Virginia tells people not to drink the rainwater there.

The nuclear reactors of Fukishima appear to have been leaking continuously into the Pacific Ocean since I131 has been found at the highest level ever measured there: 3355 times the legal limit permitted. http://enenews.com/highest-3355-times-legal-limit-radioactive-iodine-131-found-seawater-reactor-cores-continuously-leaking-pacific
Wait! The US Government, in the form of the EPA is there protecting us! Yes, they are! They are raising the levels of contamination in drinking water that can be present before an alert is sounded “nearly 1000-fold increase for exposure to strontium-90, a 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for exposure to iodine-131; and an almost 25,000 rise for exposure to radioactive nickel-63” as reported by our colleague Mike Adams.

My answer? Right now, as an adult, I would "tank up" on very high quality, bioavailable iodine sources (no, iodized salt will simply not cut it), but NOT sea food from Japan and the Pacific Ocean (for exactly the same reasons that I no longer eat ANYTHING from the Gulf of Mexico - man-made horrific contamination which will contaminate all surviving sea life for God-Alone-Knows-How-Long). But I would keep a weather eye on the situation.

For the kids? I would be very, very close, right now, to adding KI to their daily intake. Not yet, but very, very soon.

Oh, Yes, One Other Option: GET OUT OF DODGE!

If you are in North America and Europe, you WILL be exposed to days, weeks, months, years of radiation. The nuclear reactors at Fukishima will leak radiation for years, according to Japanese experts. You will be down stream of that radiation.

 

Sheryl G (359)

I would hope Patricia that this situation with Japan would be the wake up call not to even start down that path. But I don't know, I find people are not the smartest when it comes to making good choices unfortunately.
