Thorium does makes sense

The PWR and BWR reactors we use now are insane. The results speak for themselves.

The thorium cycle is indeed a much more promising alternative. orders of magnitude safer.

Three paths to near-term human extinction

Nuclear power made the list, what a surprise!

"....We’re headed for extinction via nuclear meltdown
Safely shuttering a nuclear power plant requires a decade or two of careful planning. Far sooner, we’ll complete the ongoing collapse of the industrial economy. This is a source of my nuclear nightmares.
When the world’s 442 nuclear power plants melt down catastrophically, we’ve entered an extinction event. Think clusterfukushima, times 400. Ionizing radiation could, and probably will, destroy every terrestrial organism and, therefore, every marine and freshwater organism. That, by the way, includes the most unique, special, intelligent animal on Earth.
Ready for some good news?..."


Three paths to near-term human extinction – Guy McPherson's blog

I guess there are some imbeciles who would argue that because I am not providing a scenario for replacement of nuclear power, we will just have to deal with the possibility of extinction. Oh well, there is always The Afterlife.



Quoting 
"Our past history and security have given us the sentimental belief that the things we fear will never really happen - that everything turns out right in the end. But, prudent men will reject these tranquilizers and prefer to face the facts so that they can plan intelligently for the needs of their posterity."

Rear Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, USN

Chief, Naval Reactors Branch Division of Reactor Development U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and Assistant Chief of the Bureau of Ships for Nuclear Propulsion, Navy Department

For Delivery at a Banquet of the Annual Scientific Assembly of the Minnesota State Medical Association, St. Paul, Minnesota May 14, 1957

Here is what the Father of the Nuclear Navy thought about nuclear power
(from Bad To Worse In Japan: Admiral Hyman Rickover's Warning about Nuclear Power :: EsinIslam The Muslim World Portal For Top Islamic News, Islamic Rulings, Muslim Forums, Muslim News Writers, Islamic Article Writers, Islamic Studies, Muslim Portal For Ne)

In his January 1982 congressional testimony, the Father of America's Nuclear Navy warned about nuclear power dangers, advocating its abolition, saying:


Quoting 
"I'll be philosophical. Until about two billion years ago, it was impossible to have any life on Earth; that is, there was so much radiation on earth you couldn't have any life - fish or anything."

"Gradually, about two billion years ago, the amount of radiation on this planet (reduced enough to) make it possible for some form of life to begin....Now when we go back to using nuclear power, we are creating something which nature tried to destroy to make life possible....every time you produce radiation, (a) horrible force (is unleashed), and I think there the human race is going to wreck itself. (We must) outlaw nuclear reactors. It is important that we control (destructive) forces and try to eliminate them."

"In this broad, philosophical sense, I do not believe that nuclear power is worth the present benefits, since it creates radiation. You might ask, why do I design nuclear-powered ships? Because it is a necessary evil. I would sink them all."

"From a long-range standpoint - I am talking about humanity - the most important thing we could do at present is to have an international meeting where first we outlaw nuclear weapons. Eventually, we could outlaw reactors too."



But what did Rickover know, anyway, he was only a four-star admiral in the United States Navy who directed the original development of naval nuclear propulsion and controlled its operations for three decades as director of Naval Reactors. Rickover became the longest-serving naval officer in U.S. history with 63 years active duty. (Wikipedia, Hyman G. Rickover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and no way as smart as "let's be practical" guys who have numerical names. Plus everyone in Texas Knows that the Earth was only created about 2,000 years ago.

Two things, amongst a few, I found interesting in this link, where they couldn't get within 20 km of the plant before the readings were too high to continue, and Kaku's comment on the ongoing radiation after someone dies from radiation exposure..!
This was made before present readings in Tokyo and elsewhere.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr2PmjdpLqM&feature=youtu.be

And this by Helen Caldicotts shortly after the incident.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XT6ZCxzW8K4

and a so called experts view challenging her views ..don't forget to see part two !

Nobody ever gets hurt in nuclear accidents

Radiation Will Pollute the Area Around Chernobyl For 5 to 10 Times Longer Than Models Predicted - Between 180 and 320 Years | ZeroHedge
The quote below is from the first reader comment below the article:

Quoting 

Nearly every segment of the Japanese food chain is being impacted. Dangerously high levels of radiation are being found in rice, vegetables, mushrooms, tea, nearly all dairy products, drinking water, fish, seaweed, etc.. Oh, almost forgot. The rice hay being used to feed the cattle... also highly radioactive. Radioactive beef is reportedly wide spread throughout the country.

This is just a start of the problems Japan and the rest of the world are facing. The human toll, over time, should be tragic. Look for problems to start appearing around Oct-Dec, when the first full or near full term babies start showing up since the accident. As radiation has the greatest impact on DNA during cellular division (which is raging along during the gestation process and well into ones growth), it is highly likely you will being seeing an increased incidence of deformaties, chilhood cancers and any number of health issues.

A rough explanation, but honestly representative of what is before us.

Keep in mind that GE designed these reactors.

If you are wondering why this has dropped completely off the radar of the MSM, at least part of the explanation could reside in GE's list of media holdings.......

So What? What would you replace them with?

By DINA CAPPIELLO, JEFF DONN

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The risk that an earthquake would cause a severe accident at a U.S. nuclear plant is greater than previously thought, 24 times as high in one case, according to an AP analysis of preliminary government data.


Quake risk to reactors far higher than realized - US news - Environment - msnbc.com


"...Just how many nuclear power plants are more vulnerable won't be determined until all operators recalculate their own seismic risk based on new assessments by geologists, something the agency plans to request later this year..."

Don't worry, if anything happens in the meantime the plant owners won't have to pay for the consequences. Financial harm to the plant owners would be my biggest worry, don't you agree?

Fortunately, the plants are" legally owned" by asset free shell companies, and the Federal Government is liable for the damage under the Price Anderson Act (Socialism for the rich).

There might be some big quakes coming in the next few months but Alec or any of the Baldwins can pretty much smooch my buttocks.
