USA objections to government nuclear industry promotion

antnuke-relevantNuclear Activists Speak Out During Dept. of Energy Tour over Nuclear Waste http://www.democracynow.org/2016/6/7/headlines/nuclear_activists_speak_out_during_dept_of_energy_tour_over_nuclear_waste JUNE 07, 2016 

The Department of Energy is conducting an eight-city national tour aimed at gathering public feedback on the issue of where to store nuclear waste. The agency has launched a so-called consent-based siting model to determine where to store spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. At a hearing in Boston Thursday, Paul Gunter of Beyond Nuclear raised objections to the process.

Paul Gunter: “How does the public in the affected community build trust when the Department of Energy itself is a promotional agency doing the bidding of the nuclear industry by direct promotion, and that the whole process going forward to date has lacked consent? There’s never been consent with regard to generation of nuclear waste.”

How California is being stolen from Sanders right now

The Most Revolutionary Act

Purged-Voters-1

By Greg Palast

Special Bulletin: [Los Angeles] It’s not some grand conspiracy, but it’s grand theft nonetheless. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ voters will lose their ballots, their rights, by the tens of thousands.

There are a mind-blowing 4.2 million voters in California registered NPP – and they share a love for sunshine and Bernie Sanders. According to the reliable Golden State poll, among NPP voters, Sen. Sanders whoops Sec. Hillary Clinton by a stunning 40 percentage points.

On the other team, registered Democrats prefer Clinton by a YUGE 30 points. NPP’s can vote in the Democratic primary, so, the California primary comes down to a fight between D’s and NPP’s.

And there’s the rub. In some counties like Los Angeles, it’s not easy for an NPP to claim their right vote in the Democratic primary – and in other counties, nearly impossible.

Example: In Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, if you…

Trump’s Energy plan

daryanenergyblog

donald-trump-wind-turbines-photo-25346.jpg.492x0_q85_crop-smart Trump isn’t exactly known as a fan of wind farms

Trump recently released his energy plan. As you can imagine it was slim on details but included the expected, bashing renewables, wanting to renegotiate the Paris deal and lifting numerous environmental restrictions on fossil fuel production, nuke the Whales, burn down the Amazon, usual. Needless to say the environmentalists are aghast at the prospect, as too are many other commentators on energy.

Putting aside the issues of the environment, his plan seems to be based on a simpleton vision of “green stuff bad” and “fossil fuels good”. However, not so, renewables, are creating far more jobs in the US than coal or the oil industry. Cutting off renewables at the knees will cost many American’s their jobs, not save jobs. The US renewables industry now employ’s over 750,000 people and is worth tens of billions…

Disinterest And Few People For Clinton, Overflow HUGE Crowds For Sanders, But He Is Losing?

This Weekend’s Bernie Sanders Iowa Rally Compared to Hillary Clinton’s
And if this weekend’s rally attendance is any indicator, it’s clear who’s exciting Iowans more.Saturday night, Bernie Sanders held a rally in Iowa City that brought out approximately 3,800 supporters. In fact, the local fire marshal had to turn away hundreds more who had hoped to see the nation’s lone democratic socialist U.S. Senator speak. The Independent Journal reported that approximately 500 people had to be turned away due to the lack of standing room at the University of Iowa.

In contrast, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held a rally at the 5 Flags Center in Dubuque, Iowa, but only filled half the room with under 200 supporters. The small showing was likely a huge disappointment for the former First Lady and U.S. Senator, who is trying to rev up excitement for her campaign before the first official contest of the 2016 president.

Same thing in California; only a couple hundred fans of Clinton showed up in Los Angeles, but Sanders had between 25,000 to 60,000 fans, and they had to turn an unknown number away.

But even with all of this disinterest for Clinton with only a couple people showing up, and WILD OVERFLOW crowds for Sanders, he is the loser?

Go figure…

Insanity reigns. The loser wins and the winner loses.

Just heard California is also requiring new voters to bring PHOTO ID, or they will not be able to vote, just like the worst states in the east did with the new Jim Crow anti minority and young people voting discrimination laws.

For all the talk by Democrats about free and fair elections, plus letting everyone vote, this means very good news for Clinton, because new voters are generally young, and for Sanders.

Odds are good that 400,000 YOUNG voters will be turned away because they did not bring the proper PHOTO ID.

Then more young voters will get ‘provisional’ ballots, because they will not be allowed to vote for Sanders due to not following the ‘rules’, so that is another 400,000 young people or so. Provisional ballots never make a difference in any election that makes a difference, and are not even counted until a month after the election.

Then all of the major news stations are already declaring C the winner despite her using the pledged delegates in her ‘count’, which could go to Sanders if he wins big time in California. This discourages people from voting for Sanders.

Dirty media pool…

And don’t you DARE tell people how few people are coming to her rallies, compared to Sanders..All of a sudden, Hillary Clinton is behind. The latest polls show Donald Trump has overtaken her nationally. This appears to be a trend, not a snapshot.

If it is Trump against Clinton, odds are Trump will win…Dirty toxic water, circling down the drain. Wait till the general election, and we go down into the sewer.

Japanese gov’t withheld report on Chernobyl disaster’s health effects

Fukushima 311 Watchdogs

The Japanese government has withheld an investigative report it compiled on health effects from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe despite spending 50 million yen on the survey in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, it has been learned.

The government’s investigation into the aftereffects of the Chernobyl disaster began in November 2012 — the year after the meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant — under the then Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ)-led administration, and was completed in March 2013 after the Liberal Democratic Party returned to power.

The investigative report denies local documents that confirmed far more serious health hazards from the Chernobyl accident in the former Soviet Union than those recognized by international organizations. An expert familiar with information disclosure points out that the report “should be publicized as a resource for verification from a critical point of view, considering that public money was spent…
