2020-10-08 The Nuclear Power Plant That Changed To Coal

The same company that contaminated the hills north of Los Angeles with radioactive waste built another sodium cooled reactor in Nebraska. It didn’t last long, and was converted to coal. Seems to me that Mother Nature was telling humans that they were opening a Pandora’s box full of hornet’s nests. Today Nebraska has a lot

2020-10-04 “Renewable Energy Is The Scam …”

My comment on YouTube video https://youtu.be/lL6uB1z95gA After actively disparaging renewables, he says, “I’m not actively disparaging renewables…” He makes this big stink about how renewables take up so much more land than nuclear. This is totally irrelevant! Farmers in Iowa, Nebraska have the wind turbines out in the middle if their crop fields; no problem.

2020-10-01 Renewables Don’t Need Baseload Power

This 4.7 min. TED Talk Youtube video dispels the myth that solar and wind can’t do the job without “base load” power. Amory Lovins is with the US NREL, and is an authority on this subject. He also states that renewables are less expensive than fossil or nuclear power. https://youtu.be/Oo8iEL6SqgI

2020-09-22 RICO Suit: Portsmouth, OH Uranium Processing Plant For Toxic Releases

So many uninformed people advocate nuclear power, repeating the mantra “it’s the safest form of power.” Meanwhile, since the 1950s, the Portsmouth, Ohio “Ports” uranium processing plant has been releasing toxic radioactive wastes into the environment, “causing clusters of cancer” locally. This article tells of a whistleblower complaint and RICO lawsuit against the facility. The

2020-09-18 Kodak Sued US For Fogging Their Film – Radioactive Fallout

I knew about radioactive fallout from atomic bomb tests, but I didn’t know that it damaged Kodak film. What’s very dismaying is that the US government warned Kodak but they didn’t warn people about the dangerous fallout. Tens of thousands of thyroid cancers caused by radioactive iodine. Strontium in our bones causing cancer. That’s shameful.

2020-08-23 Author: Need More Nuclear Reactors & Fusion

From NYP article https://nypost.com/2020/08/22/four-new-solutions-smarter-than-the-disastrous-green-new-deal/amp/ << For one thing, the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow. Therefore, the more wind and solar we add to the grid, the less cost-effective each new panel or turbine becomes. Doubling or tripling the number of turbines available doesn’t help much on days when the wind

2020-08-17 World Needs Nuclear Power; Peaker Plants

From: https://www.forbes.com/sites/rrapier/2020/08/16/why-the-world-needs-more-nuclear-power/amp/ The point is that the Asia Pacific region is growing and renewables may not be able meet their need for more electric power. They may have to choose between building fossil fueled and nuclear power plants. Building fossil fueled plants is increasing their greenhouse gas emissions, so they have nuclear power as their

2020-07-12 The Secret Reasons Why Nuclear Power Is Not Viable

From the comment I left at Dave’s JHAT YouTube video https://youtu.be/yofGtxEgpI8 Thank you, Dave, for the balanced and informative view. But I must bring up the “externalities” that almost every nuclear power proponent fails to address. One of the reasons why the burning of fossil fuels, especially coal, has to end is that the mining,

2020-07-12 The Safire Project

I happened to find this website for a nuclear fusion research project that makes claims about getting more energy output than it puts in. They talk about an artificial sun on earth. I have read about some amateur experimenters making a cold fusion system on a small laboratory scale, and this Safire Project seems to
