Toxic Waste Spill in North Carolina: Coal Ash (Part 1)
Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. On February 2, 2014, up to 39,000 tons of coal ash and 27 million gallons of contaminated water spilled out into the Dan River in North Carolina after a pipe broke underneath a coal ash pond at a Duke Energy power plant. The environmental disaster thrust Duke Energy, the country’s largest electricity company, into the spotlight, revealing a history of violations and inadequate oversight of ponds at all of its plants across the state. In part one, VICE News travels to North Carolina to visit a river that’s been poisoned with arsenic from a nearby Duke Energy site, speak with a resident who has found toxic heavy metals in her drinking water, and question a Duke Energy spokesperson about the power company’s policies.

Nuclear Energy Explained: Risk or Opportunity
Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there.

Dam collapse creates environmental disaster in Brazil
On November 5, 2015, two dams holding millions of cubic meters of mining waste gave way – launching one of the worst environmental disasters in Brazilian history. Mud – full of dangerous metals – quickly overtook the nearby mining community of Mariana in Minas Gerais state. At least seventeen people were killed. Hundreds more have been displaced by the wall of sludge released in the dam collapse. Music: Echoes of Time by Kevin MacLeod

How Nuclear Power Saves Lives
The Fukushima disaster reignited the nuclear power debate, but it turns out, even with its faults, nuclear power is saving lives! That's according to new NASA study about the effects of pollution on health. So just how many lives are being saved, and why? Trace has the answers. Read More: "Prevented mortality and greenhouse gas emissions from historical and projected nuclear power" http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/es3051197 "Using historical production data, we calculate that global nuclear power has prevented about 1.84 million air pollution-related deaths and 64 gigatonnes (Gt) CO2-equivalent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that would have resulted from fossil fuel burning." "Nuclear Power Prevents More Deaths Than It Causes" http://cen.acs.org/articles/91/web/2013/04/Nuclear-Power-Prevents-Deaths-Causes.html "Climate Change: Study estimates that nuclear energy leads to substantially fewer pollution-related deaths and greenhouse gas emissions compared with fossil-fuel sources" "James Hansen retires from NASA" http://www.nature.com/news/james-hansen-retires-from-nasa-1.12725 "Outspoken climate scientist gives up NASA post for advocacy role."

Nuclear energy in France - The debate after the Fukushima nuclear disaster
The Fukushima disaster has reopened the debate on the dangers of nuclear energy and the transparency of those exploiting a highly politicized industry. In response to the European Commission’s demands, France has agreed to carry out "Stress Tests" to assess the safety of all its power plants. Within an environment where industry and politics are more closely linked than ever, 1,100 incidents were reported last year on French soil. The reason: the massive recourse to subcontracting in the Atomic world.

Ban Coal/Fossil Fuels, use Nuclear Power, stop Climate Change
http://www.thenewamerican.com/reviews/opinion/item/22031-a-welcome-endorsement-for-nuclear-power Joshua S. Goldstein is emeritus professor of international relations at American University and a research scholar at the University of Massachusetts. Steven Pinker is professor of psychology at Harvard University. These two recently teamed up to pen a lengthy column in the Boston Globe entitled “Inconvenient Truths for the Environmental Movement.” The two men do believe climate change is caused by human action. They contend that burning of fossil fuels to produce electricity by humans — resulting in carbon dioxide being sent into the atmosphere — causes a rise in the earth’s temperature. There are growing numbers of scientists who disagree. But, unlike most of the would-be banners of fossil fuel, Goldstein and Pinker’s solution doesn’t target its use in generating electricity. They thereby separate themselves from environmental extremists who insist that the carbon dioxide byproduct of burning coal and oil to produce electricity is a hazard serious enough to ban the practice. Then they present a strong case for nuclear power. Here’s how these two educators addressed this topic: “Nuclear power is the world’s most abundant and scalable [reachable] carbon-free energy source. In today’s world, every nuclear power plant that is not built is a fossil-fuel plant that does get built…. Yet the use of nuclear power has been stagnant or even contracting.” Their point, of course, is that by not relying on nuclear power, the need for burning coal and oil cannot be avoided if electricity is needed — which it surely is. They then make the point that solar and wind power amounts to a mere one percent of the need and cannot be counted on to meet the needs for electric power. Aware of the fears surrounding nuclear power, Goldstein and Pinker point out that the 2011 Fukushima accident in Japan killed no one. But, they note in sadness, it unnecessarily led Germany to shut down some of its nuclear plants. In France where nuclear power produces three-quarters of the nation’s electricity, environmentalists are forcing a shutdown. And the anti-nukes in America also wrongly claim that Japan’s nuclear accident is reason to abandon nuclear power here. Many Americans can recall the 1979 mishap at Pennsylvania’s Three Mile Island plant. No one died and no one was even hurt. A camper who might have set up his tent right outside the injured plant would never have received any unwanted radiation during the fright-producing coverage of the incident. Pro-nuclear scientist Dr. Edward Teller worked himself into a state of exhaustion attempting to refute the nonsense about this accident being spread by Ralph Nader, Jane Fonda, and others. He actually suffered a heart attack and claimed his countering of the misinformation aimed at the American people led to him to being “the only victim of Three Mile Island.” Late Colorado University Professor Petr Beckmann, the author of The Health Hazards of Not Going Nuclear, consistently sought to counter fears about the use of nuclear power. He pointed to the numerous deaths resulting from mining and transporting coal for power generation and the corresponding safety in the use of nuclear power. Pittsburgh University’s Dr. Bernard Cohen, the author of Nuclear Science and Society, noted the safety associated with nuclear power production. Before he passed away, he stated: “The radiation that a person is exposed to by living within 25 miles of a nuclear plant is less than he would get from one coast-coast airplane flight every ten years.” America should turn to nuclear power for its electricity. We are grateful to Goldstein and Pinker for saying so. John F. McManus is president of The John Birch Society and publisher of The New American.

Fukushima Fallout Deaths Concerns WorldWide
I don't mean to "scare you", but here is what is happening... A very informative link is HERE: Got Cesium??? Fukushima: Do Not Panic - You Will All Die - Cesium 137 http://youtu.be/X3KNq-PtJZ4 World Record #2 FUKU, Cesium Effects http://youtu.be/octALkPM-N0 Published by by Troy Livingston https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdcPIHhr3Sq_xw1QJbJqk7g and have a peek at: World Record #1 FUKU, The Canary In Coal Mine http://youtu.be/Zh0vr4KZfnE Meanwhile... Just Today (Oct 4, 2014) Nuclear operator raises possible quake strength (Please think THINK about the implications around the World for the already existing old "aging" nuclear power plants) The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan has increased by 50% its estimate of the strength of an earthquake that could hit the plant. The utility had so far estimated the maximum strength of an earthquake that might hit Fukushima Daiichi at 600 gals and the possible height of a tsunami at 14 meters. But in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan, the plant's area registered strength of up to 675 gals and the tsunami height was 15.5 meters. The Nuclear Regulation Authority had instructed the Fukushima Daiichi plant's operator to consider revising its estimates. It made the suggestion to prevent the reactors' containment vessels from being damaged or contaminated water from leaking. The vessels house melted nuclear fuel as a result of the 2011 nuclear accident. At a meeting of experts called by the authority on Friday, the operator of the Fukushima Daiichi suggested raising the estimated strength of a possible earthquake from 600 gals to 900 gals. They also increased the height of a possible tsunami to 26 meters. The authority will shortly decide whether it will approve the figures presented by the utility. ~~~~ Cabinet approves bill on Fukushima waste disposal The Abe Cabinet approved a bill on Friday that will ensure that radioactive soil and other waste stored in Fukushima Prefecture is removed within 30 years. The move follows a demand from local communities near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant that have agreed to temporarily store contaminated soil and other waste. The facilities are to be built in Futaba and Okuma towns. The bill obliges the central government to ensure that the waste is safely stored, and that it is moved to a final disposal site outside the prefecture within 30 years. Environment Minister said he hopes to gain the trust of the local people. Got Cesium???

Global Warming: Greens vs Nuclear - "Th" Thorium Documentary
http://thoriumremix.com Coal ash piles contain more radioactive material than released by any operating nuclear power plant. Pollution from coal kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. Yet Germany and Japan are building additional coal plants to replace nuclear power plants. This has a short-term cost in lives (due to air pollution) and very serious implications for global warming. As our van of thorium advocates discuss various energy options, we hear from prominent environmentalists and climatologists who support (or who have recently come to support) expansion of nuclear power. Support of nuclear power among climate scientists is nothing new, but creating this video would have been impossible even 1 year ago. That we can quickly summarize why these scientists changes their minds is thanks to "Pandora's Promise" http://pandoraspromise.com/ by Robert Stone (prominent environmentalist). He had come to change his mind about nuclear power, and has fellow environmentalists explain their own pro-nuclear reasoning as an indirect means of expressing his own. What "Pandora's Promise" does not include is Robert Stone's own voice (except when he confronts prominent anti-nuke Dr. Helen Caldicott from behind the camera). It is Robert Stone (and fellow pro-nuclear environmentalists) interviews surrounding Pandora's Promise that has allowed this video summary to be created. Baroness Bryony Worthington's offers additional commentary on the environmentalist perspective, having worked on climate change for Friends of the Earth, and drafted the extremely impactful UK Climate Change Bill. The bills was passed in late 2013, and helps ensure that existing coal plants in UK need to meet similar emission standards as new ones... a significant step in reducing UK GHG emissions. "Next Generation Reactors" are discussed by both Pandora's Promise environmentalists, and our van full of thorium advocates. Not every environmentalist or scientist shown here is talking in support of the same "next generation" reactor. We take a closer look at different next-generation reactors in a future video chapter. But all pro-nuclear scientists do agree that any next-generation reactor will achieve a much higher level of passive safety ("walk away safe"), will help reduce our carbon emissions, and will save hundreds of thousands of lives thanks to reductions in deadly air pollution created by burning fossil fuels.

Brazil's Mine Disaster Raises Health and Environmental Risks
Amid increasingly dire search efforts in a village devastated by the mudslides, health and environmental concerns are raised. Mud and waste water from burst dams at a Brazilian iron ore mine cut off drinking water in cities more than 300 km (186 miles) downstream on Monday. Officials have confirmed two deaths since Thursday's tragedy and are working to identify two more corpses recovered on Sunday. There are still 25 people missing. officials said on Monday, Governador Valadares, a city of 280,000, has cut off its municipal water supply for 24 hours so far and will keep testing the water until the mud passes. The tragedy has galvanized government officials, environmentalists and outraged residents to call for tighter regulation of the powerful mining industry. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/S_wWgc_7pSE/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth
From the DIRTIEST Cities, to nuclear wastelands ; these are the 10 MOST TOXIC Places On Earth. HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10.La Oroya | Peru 9.Dhaka | Bangladesh 8. Norilsk | Russia The city has been branded as the most polluted city in Russia, where the snow is black, air tastes like sulfur and rivers run red. Life expectancy of employees in the smelter is 10 years below the Russian average. By some estimates, 1% of the world`s sulfur dioxide emission comes from the Norilsk nickel mines. Nearly 500 tons of copper and nickel as well as two million tons of sulfur dioxide are released into the air, annually. In 2016 the nearby Daldykan River turned red and the evidence pointed to privately owned wastewater pipes. The company accepted the responsibility while claiming that the coloring was of no danger to humans or wildlife. The smelting plant was in the process of being modernized and steps are being taken in order to reduce pollution. 7.Nevada Proving Grounds | Nevada Nevada Proving Grounds, now known as the Nevada Test Site or Nevada National Security Site is a U. S. Department of Energy reservation in Nye County, Nevada, 65 miles northwest from Las Vegas. The tests stopped in 1994 but the area is still extremely radioactive. Even though the radioactivity in the water is gradually declining, isotopes like plutonium and uranium could pose risks to workers or future settlers on the NNSS for tens of thousands of years. 6.Shanghai | China In December of 2013, Shanghai suffered a great spike in air pollution when the so called “2013 Eastern China Smog” occurred. The pollution levels were between 23 and 31 times the international standard. Nearly one-third of all government vehicles were pulled off the streets, construction work was halted, student`s outdoor activities were suspended, flights were cancelled or diverted. And even though air pollution in Shanghai is substantial by the world standard, it is still lower than other cities in China. Among the top 500 most polluted cities in the world, Chinese cities hold 179 spots. Thankfully, China is taking extremely serious measures to reduce pollution, closing coal factories, smelters and mills while switching over to more eco-friendly energy sources. 5.Northwest Arctic | Alaska Out of all the states in the union, Alaska produces the most toxins, outranking every other state by nearly 3 times. A closer look reveals that 91% of all of Alaska`s emissions come from one county, Northwest Arctic, most of it originating from one city – Kotzebue, population 7,500. So how is it possible that a tiny city, in the middle of nowhere Alaska is responsible for so much pollution? Well, just 90 miles from Kotzebue is Red Dog Mine, the largest source of zinc in the world. It was established in 1987 and each year, it releases 756 million pounds of toxins into the environment. 4.Asse II mine | Germany The Asse II mine opened between 1906, initially extracting potash (until 1925) and producing rock salt (1916-1964). But during the period between 1964 and 1995 the mine was used as a storage of radioactive waste. Now, this mine has been abandoned, with barrels of low-level and medium-level waste in a jumbled heap, some of it not even contained properly. There`s fears that the mine could fill with water and authorities are rushing to remove the waste with remotely operated vehicles since it is unsafe for workers to go in there. 3. | New Mexico The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant’s history is relatively short, it became operational in 1999. The facility is used to store transuranic waste left over from nuclear weapons research. Transuranic waste consists of clothing, tools, rags, residues, debris, soil and other items contaminated with radioactive elements, mostly plutonium. 2.Pacific Proving Grounds | Pacific Ocean Pacific Proving Grounds is the name given to a number of sites on the Marshall Islands and in the Pacific Ocean which were used for nuclear testing between 1946 and 1962. The US conducted 105 atmospheric and underwater nuclear tests in the Pacific. 1.Pripyat | Ukraine 50000 People used to live here... Now it's a ghost town. Radiation levels were so high that Nuclear Power stations in Sweden, Finland and Norway detected the anomaly. Twenty years later, the area is still uninhabitable. Except for the 197 people living in 11 villages scattered in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The average age is 63.

Ocean Sampling Fukushima Radiation
Dr. Ken Buesseler of the Wood Hole Oceanographic Institution and founder of the website OurRadioactiveOcean.org, demonstrates how citizen groups can join his effort to monitor levels of radioactive contamination from the on-going Fukushima nuclear disaster up and down the North American west coast. The sampling demonstration at Bodega Head, north of San Francisco, was organized by John Bertucci, co-founder of Fukushima Response Campaign, in cooperation with Dan Sythe, CEO of IMI - International Medcom, Inc.. In the absence of monitoring efforts by the pro-nuclear U.S. Government, this citizen-funded grassroots project aims at establishing a base-line of current radiation levels so as to track expected increases in the coming months and years, as Fukushima continues to pour radioactive pollution into the Pacific, and ocean currents continue to transport it westward.

🇮🇳 India's Coal Rush | 101 East
India is hungry for energy. Over 173 power plants, all of them coal-fired, will be built to power the nation's high-tech industries and booming cities. This is accelerating an ongoing “coal rush” which has put our dirtiest fossil fuel at the heart of India’s breakneck growth, and could soon make a single state, Andhra Pradesh, one of the world’s top 20 carbon emitters. But not everyone is convinced that this boom is a blessing. Physicist and businessman, Asoke Agarwal believes that India is heading for disaster: "It is time that we think of a more austere way of living. That was what India was famous for earlier. Today we have just aped the West. The West has gone at a speed at which they are destroying themselves, and we are following them. So it is high time that we realise that there is something drastically wrong with our economy." On 101 East, filmmaker Orlando de Guzman takes a dark journey through the coal belt of Jharkhand and West Bengal, to look at the winners and losers of this booming industry.

Nuclear Safe? 3 Mile Island, Fukushima, Chernobyl just 'bumps along the way'
Events at Fukushima should not be called a nuclear disaster, says John Ritch, Director General of the World Nuclear Association. He explains to RT why he thinks nuclear energy is still one of the safest sources of power - and getting safer. ­The history of nuclear energy goes back more than half of a century, to when the first experimental reactors were built in the 1950s. The technology of nuclear energy production is still new. Despite several bumps in its development, including the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1985 and this year's accident at Fukushima Daiichi in Japan, enormous changes have taken place in this period of time. "The remarkable thing about this technology is how essentially safe if has been," said nuclear energy expert John Ritch. "It does not produce emissions into the global atmosphere. And it has only on very rare occasions harmed anyone. In the meantime, we have had millions of fatalities from the extraction of fossil fuels from the surface of the earth and the health consequences of carbon emissions." The question of waste is one of the most fundamentally misunderstood aspects of nuclear energy, argues Ritch. The expert says that waste is the greatest comparative asset of nuclear power. Coal, natural gas or oil production uses the global public atmosphere as an enormous waste dump at the stage of both burning and transmitting - such as when gas, for instance, leaks from pipes. "Right now we are emitting carbon dioxide at the rate of 30 billion tons per year, which is 800 tons per second, into the planetary atmosphere," said Ritch. "Nuclear energy is producing a considerable portion of the world's electricity - one sixth, while producing an amount of radioactive waste that is equivalent to the size of the fuel." The waste becomes highly radioactive and must be safely stored. The wonder of nuclear energy, continues the expert, is that it can be managed. Nuclear waste can be safely stored in the immediate term, right after it comes out of the reactor, and eventually be put into long term storage containers. The containers are then placed back into the earth in geological depositories that are carefully selected. In the end, it is no ultimate harm either to people, or the environment. Even when we talk of the Fukushima disaster, we must note that the 24,000 people who died as a result of March's tragic events were killed by the earthquake and tsunami. But the media keeps coming up with the "nuclear disaster" hype, while there has not been a single case of a radiation fatality there, Ritch pointed out. This worse-case nuclear event has inflicted relatively little damage."The Japanese made a mistake. The fundamental mistake they made was deciding that the worst tsunami they might encounter would come at a certain height. They misjudged. And the result was that they did not have waterproof backup cooling systems," said Ritch. RT on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/RTnews RT on Twitter: http://twitter.com/RT_com

3 years after Fukushima, Japan's energy policy still in limbo... - #Focus
3 years ago the north-eastern coastline of Japan was hit by a gigantic tsunami. Beyond the thousands of people who died, the many more who saw their homes and towns destroyed, this natural disaster also triggered an industrial and environmental one. The Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear facility was badly crippled by the monumental waves. In the aftermath of this accident - which is ongoing and remains a critical health and environmental hazard for both Japan and the rest of mankind- the Japanese government decided to stop all of the country's 48 nuclear reactors. Law-makers have made it clear: nuclear plants will not re-open until drastic security measures are implemented to consolidate the existing infrastructure. Yet Prime Minister Shinzo remains determined to re-open these nuclear plants, a position he expressed once more on Monday, as he addressed the Japanese Senate. Meanwhile many Japanese citizens have grown wary of the nuclear industry and anti-nuclear activists are trying to build-up momentum on such feelings... 03/11/2014 FOCUS An exclusive in-depth report from a FRANCE24 correspondent, followed by comment and analysis with the author and the anchor in the newsroom in Paris.

Beyond Fukushima - When will we learn? Paul Gunter & Kevin Kamps  P2
Meanwhile - on the ground - teams of TEPCO workers began working in shifts to bring the melting down plant under control. These shifts were essentially suicide missions - as radiation levels were well above lifetime dosages. During that March - an estimated 900,000 terabecquerels of radiation were released into the air. That's roughly one-sixth of the radiation released during the Chernobyl nuclear crisis - but again - that was just during the month of March. Between then and December of 2011, when TEPCO finally said the plant was stable, more than 300 workers were exposed to lethally high levels of radiation - and millions of gallons of highly radioactive sea water were dumped into the ground and into the ocean.The effects of this radioactive dump are still not known. In February of this year - TEPCO began pouring cement around the plant as part of the decommissioning process - a process that operators believe could take as long as 30 years. But despite assurances from TEPCO that the plant is stable - evidence shows the nuclear crisis is still far from resolved. The Unit 4 reactor building, with tons of radioactive fuel and waste still stored in its roof, is leaning - and in danger of toppling over and triggering a chain-reaction radioactive fire that could blow exponentially more radiation in the atmosphere than Chernobyl And radiation levels at reactor one recently reached all-time highs. Yet - Japan is moving forward with nuclear power. Just this month - a reactor at the Oi nuclear plant was turned on - marking the first time a Japanese nuclear reactor was operational since the March earthquake. But the question is - have the lessons of Fukushima been learned? And not just in Japan - where the crisis continues and could yet worsen - but also in the United States? That's the topic for tonight's Bigger Picture discussion.... Joining Thom for Conversations with Great Minds are...Paul Gunter - the Director of Reactor Oversight Project at Beyond Nuclear - and 2008 recepient of the Jane Bagley Lehman Award for environmental activism - who's been on the front lines fighting back against nuclear power for more than thirty years now. And - Kevin Kamps - Radioactive Waste Watchdog at Beyond Nuclear - who's testified before the officials at the highest levels U.S. Federal Agencies dealing with radioactive Waste Management - including the Department of Energy, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the EPA.

Is Nuclear Power Worth the Environmental Cost?
Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2007/09/13/More_Nuclear_Energy_Why_America_Needs_it_Now Admiral Frank "Skip" Bowman, President and CEO of the Nuclear Energy Institute, argues that nuclear waste management is a less severe problem than many believe. ----- Frank 'Skip' Bowman discusses "More Nuclear Energy: Why America Needs it Now." The volatility of natural gas prices and the potential for restrictions on coal-fueled power plants have combined to generate greater demand for nuclear power. Nuclear energy expert Bowman will speak frankly on the triumphs and challenges involved in securing a future for nuclear power in the United States. - The Commonwealth Club of California Admiral Frank L. "Skip" Bowman is a native of Chattanooga, Tenn. He was commissioned following graduation in 1966 from Duke University. In 1973 he completed a dual master's program in nuclear engineering and naval architecture/marine engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was elected to the Society of Sigma Xi. Adm. Bowman has been awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from Duke University. Admiral Bowman serves on two visiting committees at MIT (Ocean Engineering and Nuclear Engineering), the Engineering Board of Visitors at Duke University, and the Nuclear Engineering Department Advisory Committee at the University of Tennessee.

Risks Of Nuclear Power: Reactor Accidents
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/xeneplex.html The nuclear power plant design strategy for preventing accidents and mitigating their potential effects is "defense in depth" if something fails, there is a back-up system to limit the harm done, if that system should also fail there is another back-up system for it, etc., etc. Of course it is possible that each system in this series of back-ups might fail one after the other, but the probability for that is exceedingly small. The Media often publicize a failure of some particular system in some plant, implying that it was a close call" on disaster; they completely miss the point of defense in depth which easily takes care of such failures. Even in the Three Mile Island accident where at least two equipment failures were severely compounded by human errors, two lines of defense were still not breached essentially all of the radioactivity remained sealed in the thick steel reactor vessel, and that vessel was sealed inside the heavily reinforced concrete and steel lined "containment" building which was never even challenged. It was clearly not a close call on disaster to the surrounding population. The Soviet Chernobyl reactor, built on a much less safe design concept, did not have such a containment structure; if it did, that disaster would have been averted. Risks from reactor accidents are estimated by the rapidly developing science of "probabilistic risk analysis" (PRA). A PRA must be done separately for each power plant (at a cost of $5 million) but we give typical results here: A fuel melt-down might be expected once in 20,000 years of reactor operation. In 2 out of 3 melt-downs there would be no deaths, in 1 out of 5 there would be over 1000 deaths, and in 1 out of 100,000 there would be 50,000 deaths. The average for all meltdowns would be 400 deaths. Since air pollution from coal burning is estimated to be causing 10,000 deaths per year, there would have to be 25 melt-downs each year for nuclear power to be as dangerous as coal burning. Of course deaths from coal burning air pollution are not noticeable, but the same is true for the cancer deaths from reactor accidents. In the worst accident considered, expected once in 100,000 melt-downs (once in 2 billion years of reactor operation), the cancer deaths would be among 10 million people, increasing their cancer risk typically from 20% (the current U.S. average) to 20.5%. This is much less than the geographical variation 22% in New England to 17% in the Rocky Mountain states. Very high radiation doses can destroy body functions and lead to death within 60 days, but such "noticeable" deaths would be expected in only 2% of reactor melt-down accidents; there would be over 100 in 0.2% of meltdowns, and 3500 in 1 out of 100,000 melt-downs. To date, the largest number of noticeable deaths from coal burning was in an air pollution incident (London, 1952) where there were 3500 extra deaths in one week. Of course the nuclear accidents are hypothetical and there are many much worse hypothetical accidents in other electricity generation technologies; e.g., there are hydroelectric dams in California whose sudden failure could cause 200,000 deaths. http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store/xeneplex.html

Toxic Waste in the US: Coal Ash (Trailer)
Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. In the upcoming series, VICE News travels across the US to meet the people and visit the areas most affected by this toxic waste stream. Since coal production is predicted to remain steady for the next few decades, coal ash will be a problem that will affect the US for years to come.

Nuclear  Watch: Fukushima TEPCO applies to build new water drain system (08/09/2014)
TEPCO applies to build new water drain system Nuclear & Energy Aug. 9, 2014 - Updated 08:10 UTC+2 The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it will apply to the regulation authority to build new facilities to discharge decontaminated ground water into the ocean. A large amount of contaminated ground water from beneath the plant continues to leak into the ocean. Engineers with Tokyo Electric Power Company are building an iron barrier along a coastal embankment. Then, they plan to pump up the ground water, and decontaminate it before discharging it into the ocean. TEPCO officials also want to decontaminate ground water collected at wells near reactor buildings. They say they will apply on Monday to the Nuclear Regulation Authority for permission. They say they've explained the plan to local fishermen, and there has been no objection about the plan so far. Regulators will examine the plan for its effectiveness and safety. TEPCO says it will make a final decision on whether to discharge the water into the ocean after consulting with locals. The plan is likely to meet opposition as fishermen are voicing concern that the move will increase consumer worries about sea pollution. http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/nuclear.html
How One Gold Mine Transformed Into A Renewable Energy Plant
Genex Power is a renewable energy producer, built on what was once the biggest gold mine in Australia, the Kidston Gold Mine, previously owned by Barrick Gold. “When the mine closed, we went to Barrick and bought it from them,” said Simon Kidston, executive director of Genex Power. Kidston told Kitco News on the sidelines of the Noosa Mining & Exploration Investment Conference that Genex Power is one of the first renewable energy plants in Australia to utilize a hybrid of hydro and solar capacities. _________________________________________________________________ Kitco News is the world’s #1 source of metals market information.

Nuclear Watch: USA testing for plankton and Fukushima contamination off West Coast (8/5/2014)
North Pacific Dispatches: Mercury, Cesium, Plankton and Whales from fukushima http://obrag.org/?p=85983 Salmon scientists zoom in on plankton http://www.king5.com/news/environment/Salmon-scientists-zoom-in-on-plankton-270076171.html by GARY CHITTIM / KING 5 News Bio | Email | Follow: @gchittimK5 Posted on August 5, 2014 at 5:16 PM Updated yesterday at 6:59 PM DUPONT, Wash. — The crew aboard a Nisqually Tribal research vessel pulled up a net from 400 feet down in Puget Sound. “We want to take a look at the plankton,” said Tribal field Crew Supervisor Nano Perez. For the first time, tribes, agencies and groups in Canada are giving plankton a serious look as part of the massive Salish Sea Marine Survival Project. Phytoplankton is the plant form of plankton; zooplankton are the tiny animals that eat phytoplankton. The concern is the balance and supply of plankton could be off and that could be a possible factor in the mysterious die off of young salmon when they enter Puget Sound from their native rivers. Salmon eat plankton and so do the smaller fish that salmon also eat. The samples look like green slime on the nets, but when the plankton is flushed into small sample jars you can see they are teaming with life. The tiny zooplankton can be seen darting around the jar. The samples will be taken to labs and analyzed. If there turns out to be a problem, then scientists can start looking for why it’s happening.

Fukushima Lifting Evacuations while Low Level Radiation Studied update 10/1/14
Evacuation order lifted in Fukushima village Sept. 30, 2014 The Japanese government has lifted an evacuation order for part of Kawauchi Village near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The measure -- for the eastern part of the village in Fukushima Prefecture -- took effect on Wednesday at midnight. It affects 274 residents in 139 households. The government says decontamination has been completed in the area. The roads and other infrastructure have been rebuilt, and utility services are up and running. This is the second time an evacuation order has been lifted since the 2011 accident, after the Miyakoji district in Tamura City in April. Residents can now stay in their homes and reopen restaurants or other businesses. But some have expressed concern that a drop in radiation levels is not sufficient for a return to their former lives. Others complain that shopping and medical services are inconvenient. Because of this, not all former residents are expected to return to the village. Also on Wednesday, the government re-designated some areas of the village where overnight stays had been prohibited as zones preparing for the return of residents. An evacuation order is still in place for 10 municipalities around the Daiichi plant more than 3 and a half years after the accident, affecting some 80,000 people. Entry or overnight stays are limited in some areas. The government has designated evacuation zones in 3 categories according to radiation levels. Evacuation orders are to be lifted after decontamination is complete. ~~~ Meanwhile... back at the "ranch"... Impact of Low-Level Radiation Scientists from Japan and abroad have been trudging through the abandoned fields and forests of Fukushima looking for clues. They're trying to find out how the radiation released by the damaged nuclear plant there is affecting animals and insects. And some are paying particular attention to how or even if low-level contamination is affecting organisms. NHK WORLD's Craig Dale has the story. ~~~ NRA chief defends volcanic hazard measures The head of Japan's nuclear power regulator has defended its approval of volcanic hazard measures for a nuclear power plant in Kagoshima, southern Japan. Shunichi Tanaka, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, was speaking at a news conference on Wednesday. His remarks follow the eruption of Mount Ontake in central Japan on Saturday without any detection of warning signs. Dozens of climbers died in the eruption. The eruption prompted public concern over volcanic hazard measures for the Sendai plant in Kagoshima Prefecture operated by Kyushu Electric Power Company. There are active volcanoes in the prefecture. The utility had showed plans to remove nuclear fuel from the facility if it detects any signs of volcanic activity or tectonic plate movement around the plant. The NRA officially approved the plans last month as part of its screening of measures proposed by the utility based on government requirements for the restart of offline reactors. At Wednesday's news conference, the NRA chief said Ontake's hydro volcanic eruption is unlike any huge volcanic eruption that may occur around the Sendai nuclear power plant. He says discussing them as the same type of event is not scientific. Tanaka said that before an enormous eruption, land movements and tremors appear much earlier than for the ongoing eruption of Mount Ontake. The NRA has held 2 meetings with volcanologists since August. Participants pointed out the difficulty of predicting volcanic eruptions using current knowledge and technology. The extra clip at the end about sheep sheering was just because I thought it was interesting. ~~~ Nuclear risk center chief urges change in mindset The head of Japan's newly established Nuclear Risk Research Center has urged everyone involved with nuclear energy to change their mindset. The center opened on Wednesday as part of the Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry, which is run jointly by Japanese power companies. Center chief George Apostolakis served on the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission until June. He specializes in analyzing risks at nuclear plants. The center's aim is to pinpoint such risks, including those at plants that have met government requirements to restart, and to help power companies fix the problems. Apostolakis said Japan has been slow to introduce risk analysis, perhaps because most people think everything that meets government requirements is safe. He added that such attitudes must change, to ensure safety. BONUS video: a great new upload called World Record #1 FUKU, The Canary In Coal Mine http://youtu.be/Zh0vr4KZfnE

Nuclear Watch: Fukushima  Radioactive water still be entering tunnels  11/14/2014
Radioactive water still be entering tunnels Nuclear & Energy Nov. 13, 2014 - Updated 22:02 UTC+1 The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant faces another challenge in its effort to address radioactive water at the complex. It says highly contaminated water may still be flowing from reactor buildings into adjacent underground tunnels even after a work to stem the flow ended. The water in the tunnels is believed to be leaking into the sea. Tokyo Electric Power Company plans to pump the tainted water out of the tunnels and fill them with cement. To prepare for the process, the firm began work in April to stem the flow of radioactive water between the reactor buildings and the tunnels. It involved freezing some of the water as well as plugging the gaps with filler materials. TEPCO finished the work on November 6th. But workers found that water levels in the reactor buildings and the tunnels are still linked. They note this suggests that the flow of radioactive water between them may not have been stopped. TEPCO officials say that if the situation doesn't improve, they may start filling the tunnels with cement even before they finish removing contaminated water.

Thorium 2017
Thorium is an abundant material currently disposed of as waste. It is found in coal ash piles and mine tailings. A single Rare Earths mine could produce enough Thorium byproduct to power the entire planet. To do so requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kinds we use today. Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses extremely stable molten salts. The full description of one such reactor is: 2-Fluid, Thermal-Spectrum, Molten-Salt Breeder Reactor equipped with a chemical fuel salt treatment module. Such a reactor was conceived of decades ago, as documented in the book "Fluid Fuel Reactors" [1958]. Or, simply "LFTR" (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) as proposed by Flibe Energy's Kirk Sorensen... a modern redesign of the 2-Fluid, thermal-spectrum, MSBR concept. http://Flibe-Energy.com/ Since 2011 (the year Flibe Energy was founded), legislators asking questions about Thorium have had their queries answered as if such a reactor design did not exist. NNL [UK] and OECD [NEA] reports on the Thorium Fuel Cycle did not explore the implications of this reactor, and dismiss thorium based on challenges and mediocre performance found in other reactor designs. For example, other options include a "Fast-Spectrum Molten-Salt Reactor". Worth pursuing, certainly, but requires more fissile inventory than LFTR... approximately 5x as much. (Fissile inventory is specifically mentioned as a concern by OECD's thorium report.) And assuming the challenges of a fast-spectrum MSR can be met... both natural Uranium and natural Thorium can both be fully consumed as fuel in a fast-spectrum reactor. That is where Thorium is dismissed as only "4x as common as Uranium" (fast-spectrum usage) rather than "400x as common as U-235" (thermal-spectrum usage). Thorium's advantages: both thermal-spectrum breeding and unique chemical properties, are taken full advantage of only by LFTR style reactors. When evaluated in any other reactor, depending on that reactor, Uranium can be as attractive, more attractive, or Uranium can be the only viable option. For example: Shippingport. Cited as an example of a "Thorium Reactor" by Dr. Lyons, it was NEVER intended to be economical, and features no advantages of LFTR. It was a solid-fuel reactor, and so operated at low-temperature, had no on-line chemical reprocessing, used high-pressure water coolant, used fuel as inefficiently as every other solid-fuel reactor, and had to be shut down every time it was refueled. 2 of its 3 fuel loads were Enriched Uranium. It was -a- Reactor capable of consuming Thorium and demonstrated only that it was possible... it was not -THE- Thorium Reactor. If you'd like to watch a mini-series length (6.5h) documentary on this topic, please check out "Thorium." https://youtu.be/2oK6Rs6yFsM ...it goes into some technical detail on Thorium and Molten Salt Reactors, as well as nuclear power itself.
