NRC to send inspectors to check radiation monitoring at University of Missouri building
[link to enformable.com]

[snip]

Pickard Hall was built in 1892 and previously served as the chemistry building. The radiation is believed to have come from the lab of chemistry Professor Herman Schlundt from his work on radium separation and thorium research, but no radioactive materials have been used since the 1930s. The majority of the contamination is thought to from Radium-226. The contamination has been found behind the walls, on the grounds, in the attic, underneath floor tiles, and in pipes and ductwork in the building.

Around 11:07 AM on September 22nd, while working on removing debris from atop the crippled reactor building, a heavy thousand pound steel frame was knocked into Reactor 3′s spent fuel pool.

The steel frame was located on the south-eastern pool side, and it was hit by the tip of a crane during debris removal work.

Congress OKs $100M for Piketon plant

Even with the $100 million that brings the government's contribution to the project to $188 million so far, the project remains uncertain. USEC officials have said they still need about $92 million from Congress to finish the Centrifuge project and move toward commercialization of the uranium enrichment technology, as envisioned by an agreement with the federal Department of Energy.

Nuclear Power Part II: Waste, No Solution So Far
[link to chapelboro.com]

[snip]

Gamma rays, beta particles, and to a lesser extent, alpha particles, are extremely hazardous to your health. The explanation for this could fill an entire book, so let me give you the short version. The high energies of gamma rays and beta particles allow them to penetrate into your body where they can cause molecular damage. Some of the damaged molecules are DNA. DNA damage from nuclear radiation can result in a number of different cancers, particularly thyroid cancers and leukemia.

While nuclear power plants generate a variety of radioactive wastes, by far the most difficult to manage are the spent fuel rods. Spent fuel rods contain unutilized uranium as well as a mixture of different radioactive elements which are members of the uranium-235 decay chain. The fuel rods will continue to pose serious danger to human health for millions of years.

The world has already generated a staggering amount of nuclear waste to which we are adding approximately 12,000 tons per year. All of this has occurred without a clear plan to manage the waste. While we continue to evaluate the potential long-term storage options, most of the world’s nuclear wasted is staged in temporary above-ground storage facilities where it has been incorporated into glass and ceramic composites, sealed in metal containers, and encased in concrete. This storage approach is sufficient to protect us from radiation in the short term, but is not sufficient to isolate the waste for the millions of years that will be necessary.

A Melting Greenland Weighs Perils Against Potential
[link to www.nytimes.com]

[snip]

The Arctic is warming even faster than other parts of the planet, and the rapidly melting ice is causing alarm among scientists about sea-level rise. In northeastern Greenland, average yearly temperature have risen 4.5 degrees in the past 15 years, and scientists predict the area could warm by 14 to 21 degrees by the end of the century.

Already, winter pack ice that covers the fjords is no longer stable enough for dog sledding and snowmobile traffic in many areas. Winter fishing, essential to feeding families, is becoming hazardous or impossible.

The pro-nukers don't stand a chance. Those posters are informed and angry.. as they should be.

It is great to see so many have joined the fight. Wasn't that way not so long ago. If nothing else, Fuku has awakened a sleeping giant.
We are not all of us ignorant sheep... as much as the nukesters would like to believe it to be so.

Alas, all of our protestations mean zilch if tptb continue their quixotic quest to make nuclear power generation the standard for the future.. despite the expense, danger and insanity of it all.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24180316


Semantics.. parsing. Global warming to me means warming of the globe, literally.
Political posturing has made the term erroneously synonymous with man-made effects.
Climate is always in a state of flux.. this is normal. Balance is achieved in this way amongst the multitude of factors affecting it.

My thoughts on this are that man has had some influence in a small way in relation to the normal progression of climatic flux.. but is not the overwhelming factor it has been portrayed to be by those attempting to profit from it or sway public opinion for the benefit of their agendas.

This includes the nuclear industry and their push for nuclear power generation as the savior of humanity.
Bullshit, I say.

Since earth was formed, climate has morphed until it is what we know it to be. The climatic cycles experienced by man are a miniscule segment when compared to the overall evolution of our systems.
Earth gets hot.. earth gets cold.. and so on.
