I Thought They Said This Stuff Was Safe?

Take a look at the link attached.  https://www.forbiddenknowledgetv.com/videos/radiation-poisoning/helen-caldicott-im-not-fearmongeringthis-is-all-too-real.html

We have had a terrible and tragic storm hit the rust-belt section of the United States, the North-east.  Much of our infrastructure has been wrecked meaning no electric power (among other things).  Where there is no electric power you cannot run water pumps … thus there is no water supply … not for drinking or flushing toilets … and not for the pumps that keep nuclear fuel rods from going (dare I say it) nuclear.

During a news broadcast the other day I believe I heard them say there were 21 nuclear power stations in the affected area and at least two were reported “on shut-down” due to the storm.  No electricity, no pumps to cool the rods … but no worries, we are told; those nuclear plants have their own back-up generators.  However, generators depend of fuel to run so at some point they will need to be refueled and that will depend on the ability of our infrastructure to recover and deliver the fuel.  I really hope this doesn’t become an issue. 

But there is a larger issue here.  Think back to Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and Fukushima!  Does your recollections of the early stages of those misadventures with nuclear power stations include the authorities bending over backwards to keep the public informed with accurate information?  Mine doesn’t!  In fact, for the most part it seemed like their approach was to provide absolute minimum information. 

Watch the video above and then ask yourself this question.  Based on the what we already know about the “authorities” and their willingness to disclose full and accurate information … if there was the potential for a melt-down …

1.      What would they tell us … and what would they hold back?

2.      When would they tell us … after they safely evacuated their own families … never?  Would they decide, like they did at Fukushima, that all they needed to do is change the radiation levels they deem safe?

3.      Who would get in trouble … for informing the public (or not informing the public), or for misleading us into thinking nuclear power is safe (well, I guess in a way it is … if you don’t mind waiting 20,000 years or so).  Ask anyone from Chernobyl when was the last time you could go home?

4.      Where would they move the people … how do you feel about living, permanently, in a FEMA camp?

5.      How would we fix a melt-down once it occurred … Chernobyl fallout spread over tens of thousands of square miles and drove more than a quarter million people from their homes and that area was fairly remote compared to one of our big cities.  Chernobyl has a thirty Kilometer radius exclusion zone … what would that mean in the Northeastern United States?

Should we be asking the people in Washington why they want to shut down all the coal fired power plants … do we really want more nuclear risks?  Frankly, I have not been sold on the global warming treatise … but even if it’s true, I would take a little global warming over a 20,000 year exclusion zone covering a huge expanse on the Northeastern United States.

From Wikipedia we get: Globally, there have been at least 99 (civilian and military) recorded nuclear reactor accidents from 1952 to 2009 (defined as incidents that either resulted in the loss of human life or more than US$50,000 of property damage, the amount the US federal government uses to define major energy accidents that must be reported), totaling US$20.5 billion in property damages. The accidents involved meltdowns, explosions, fires, and loss of coolant, and occurred during both normal operation and extreme emergency conditions (such as droughts and earthquakes). Property damage costs include destruction of property, emergency response, environmental remediation, evacuation, lost product, fines, and court claims. Because nuclear reactors are large and complex accidents onsite tend to be relatively expensive.

Now do some of your own research.  For example, find out how long we need to keep spent nuclear fuel rods in coolant vessels … and after that how long they are still unsafe to life.  Spent rods need to go somewhere during that period … but where … your back yard … your neighbors … maybe we should dump them all in the ocean (I hope you don’t like eating fish).

What is going on with those nuclear power plants out east … is there something they're afraid to tell us about ... right now?

Think about it!  You’ll know what to do!
