Good Times! Nuclear Wind Farms, Black Rain and Sex for Profit – Weekly News Round-up

by Liam Scheff

It’s the theme song of today, boys and girls. It’s…

GOOD TIMES.

What’s happening out there? No nuclear emergency YET –  but Pennsylvania wants YOU to know that it cares:

“The Department of Health will provide free potassium iodide tablets Thursday, Aug. 8, to Pennsylvanians who live, work or attend school within a 10-mile radius of one of the state’s five nuclear power plants.

Potassium iodide, or KI, can help protect the thyroid gland against harmful radioactive iodine when taken as directed during radiological emergencies. Individuals should only take KI when told to do so by state health officials or the governor.” LINK

Hey, PA – good luck with that iodine – and those four nuclear power plants. Vermont, you’ll want to get your pills ready, too, because Vermont Yankee’s looking dicey!

“So far, only malfunctions on June 14 and July 11 have been reported to the public by the NRC. Entergy reported only two malfunctions in its formal report to the NRC on Friday.” LINK

Hey, Let’s Travel!

“Japan TV reveals cover-up of radioactive ‘black rain’ data — “This is really surprising” — “I feel nothing but resentment” LINK  VIDEO

What? Nuclear COVER-UP? Nooo. NO! No. Well.

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.  Did I mention, Yes?

But they couldn’t cover it up now, could they?

“Tokyo Electric Power Co. has reported finding radioactive cesium levels in underground water at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant that is eight times greater than what it recorded right after the accident.” LINK

They don’t have to – nobody’s paying attention.

But, we can wrap it in a bow and make it pretty:

“There are three ways to decommission nuclear reactors, said Ishikawa. One is immediate dismantling. Another, used at the wrecked Chernobyl plant in Ukraine, entombed the whole building in concrete. The third is cocooning used at Hanford. Entombing and cocooning cost less than immediate dismantling as it reduces the expense for handling and moving highly radiated material, Ishikawa said.” LINK

Hey, what’s say we get the Fuku Out of Japan! Hello Texas! What’s a-happenin!?

“Construction officially begins Tuesday on the Pantex Renewable Energy Project, which will use the energy stored in Texas Panhandle winds to help power one of the key facilities in the National Nuclear Security Administration’s weapons complex.

The wind farm will consist of five 2.3 megawatt turbines located on 1,500 acres of land east of the Pantex Plant. Pantex is the primary site for the assembly, disassembly and maintenance of the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile.” LINK

“Stored wind?” Wha.. .Wind-power for…nuclear weapons?

Is G.W.Bush still in charge? (I smell a Cheney!)

IT’S!!!

Goood Times!

(End Times? We hope not. But, if so, grab a friend, and make more money).

  1. This is an excellent, short documentary by Josh Fox (Gasland 1&2) – it is essentially an 18 minute detailed, friendly-graphic summary of BOTH films. Man, I love this guy for making this information PUBLICLY AVAILABLE in the briefest, easiest-to-digest manner for the public good. Josh Fox – you are a hero.

  2. “Gasland”:

    Great information. Hate to get all cynical, here, but this is just the stuff the industry is willing to tell us! :-)
