And just like any fuel, it gets used up eventually. Your 12-foot-long fuel rod full of those uranium pellet, lasts about six years in a reactor, until … Continue reading Rachel Maddow – The Problem With Radioactive Spent Fuel From Nuclear Reactors
According to the article; Human Health Problems at Two of the Most Polluted Places on Earth, the Savannah River Site in South Carolina is an 802 square kilometer complex that has been severely polluted by five decades of Nuclear Weapons production. It is now rated as one of the top ten most polluted and toxic … Continue reading Savannah River Site; Most Severely Radiation Polluted Place on Earth?
http://cinemaforumfukushima.org/2012/05/06/archive-footage-of-the-nyc-press-conference-may-4th-2012/ “Dr Paolo Scampa, a widely know EU Physicist, single handedly popularized the easily understood Lethal Doses concept. “Lethal Doses”; what does it mean?Dr. Paolo has estimated that Fukushima in total has released radiation that equals approximately "three thousand billion (3,000,000,000,000) lethal doses of radiation. This is up from about 70 Billion = 70,000,000,000 Billion … Continue reading Dr. Paolo Scampa Reports That Fukushima Released 3,000 Billion Lethal Doses Of Radiation
There are many ways that radiation from both the military, energy, medical and nuclear power industries ends up in the oceans of the world. No one is calculating the total from ALL sources, but some information is available. Just the few reprocessing plants release enough radiation into the ocean and air EACH YEAR, to equal … Continue reading Radioactive Waste Dumping In Oceans
In this article we discuss methods that will result in nuclear plants being shut down as well as having no new ones being built in the future.There are plenty of reasons for hope. Most nuclear power plants are located in only four nations, and most nations have few or no nuclear power plants. Let's work … Continue reading How To Prevent Any New Nuclear Power Plants From Being Built, Switch To 100% Renewables
CBS 60 Minutes features two videos that you can watch below, about the Handford toxic Superfund site, together with all of the trials and tributions going on around it. The worst leaking nuclear waste problem in the world (Hanford) is hopefully going to be 'processed' by a new nuclear waste processing facility. This facility is being … Continue reading Hanford; Lethal And Leaking; A Race To Armageddon?
The Union Of Concerned Scientists says that "reprocessing would increase the risk of nuclear terrorism. Less than 20 pounds of plutonium is needed to make a nuclear weapon. If the plutonium remains bound in large, heavy, and highly radioactive spent fuel assemblies (the current U.S. practice), it is nearly impossible to steal. In contrast, separated plutonium is … Continue reading Why Extracting Plutonium from Nuclear Reactor Spent Fuel is a Bad Idea:
