|Say "NO ! " to Nuclear Plants|
" No comment !!! ".
Leadership in the United States of America has chosen to continue with the program of nuclear madness. The nuclear industry has clearly been given the green light by President Barack Obama.
Perhaps the subsequent February 9, 2012 approval of two new nuclear reactors by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is the damning evidence so unbelievable and outrageous it raises the question of whether 'ordinary' citizens should even bother trying to address the issue in a reasonable manner.
It seems the horrific nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Japan already been forgotten or is being totally ignored even though the effects of the melt-down, explosions, fires in the nuclear facilities and wide-spread, dangerously high radioactive contamination at Fukushima are not resolved, and will not be for many centuries.
The nuclear elite in North America have decided they can magically address those safety concerns' therefore nuclear will become "safe".
Approval for two new nuclear reactors to be built by 2016 in Vogtle, Georgia has been given.
These 'brilliant people' have decided an earthquake can never happen in Vogtle, Georgia. A nuclear meltdown can never happen in Vogtle, Georgia. A major leak of radioactive material can never happen in Vogtle, Georgia.
The trouble is, clearly all of the above CAN happen.
A tsunami could NEVER damage the nuclear reactors at Fukushima. Cleverly-designed backup cooling systems AND SHUTDOWN SYSTEMS can NEVER fail. Three Mile Island could not OCCUR. "IMPOSSIBLE! " The horrific meltdown at Chernobyl apparently could not happen either.
We all know "THESE CATASTROPHES can't happen" according to the nuclear industry, but DID.
CLEARLY The question of competence must be brought to bear. Read the comments in this news article and decide for yourselves.
Shall we now sit in silence and apathy, and say " NO COMMENT ! "?
Quite to the contrary.
We believe this decision to be irresponsible, outrageous and unacceptable by any standards.
Clean, environmentally safe methods are already available to develop power. Nuclear plants are not necessary. The threat to the environment and humanity itself is not necessary.
With reasoning, authority, and leadership itself thoughtlessly tossed to rabid nuclear dogs who delight in pushing their own greedy agenda for profit, and are also clearly out of control, ignoring the most basic tenets of common sense, why should anyone express concern?
In fact, pushing logic even farther, does the United States of America need the expense of governance and "leadership" that fails to act or understand the need for a major change of energy policy NOW ?
"Let us maintain silence, cast our embarrassed gaze at our navels, pretend ignorance, fade into the sunset, and allow greedy corporate fools to run North America entirely so humanity can be irradiated for profit".
Nuclear madness designed and perpetrated by greedy corporate interests must be addressed and halted.
The fact is, if a highly industrial country like Germany can go nuclear-free and use alternative, clean methods of production, so can the United States of America. It is time to recognize fact and have common sense prevail.
At Incoming Bytes we find it difficult to understand why these outrageous plans have so thoughtlessly been approved. To maintain and ensure a healthy environment for all of humanity is far more important than corporate greed. This course of action is totally irresponsible. The blighted record of the nuclear industry is already more than apparent. It is deadly.
Readers of Incoming Bytes are encouraged to think and decide for themselves.
Is that incoming I hear?
