There is normally a "zero" release policy for all nuclear plants. This means zero radioactive contamination leaves the plant except for the waste that is shipped to licensed facility's. But because the nuclear fuel has melted through the containment building floor at Fukushima and is contaminating the ground water They are allowing this to be released into the Pacific Ocean. They have no control and this will last for 10000 year+. The policy is "the solution to pollution is dilution". In this case the pollution is highly toxic and can spread to a valuable food source. Write to your Senators and Congessman to stop this contamination of our ocean.

Ultimate corporate bailout - Price Anderson

A recent 2011 property value study of property values within the 50 miles radius of Indian Point is $8.5 trillion. Under the Price Anderson Act Indian Point is only insured for $12 billion. That is only .15% coverage.

Clearly that is not adequate insurance. Yet insurance companies made a decision at the birth of the nuclear industry that they would not insure it - as it to risky.

So Price Anderson was enacted and continues to be renewed by Congress after Congress and is the ultimate government bailout or subsidy. In essence the United States Taxpayers are the insurers for privately owned highly profitable nuclear plants. An interesting form of capitalism seems to be at work in the nuclear industry: privatize profits and socialize liabilities.

Hemp 'Eats' Chernobyl Waste (crude oil spills?)

The blast heavily contaminated agricultural lands in a 30 km radius around the reactor. The few people still living there must monitor their food and water for radiation. However the combination of a new technology (phytoremediation) and an old crop (industrial hemp) may offer the Ukraine a way to decontaminate it's radioactive soil.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
