RADIOACTIVE FUTURE, Letter of apology…

Letter of apology to the RADIOACTIVE FUTURE…

Dear Aquarians,

Well, we got through that sensationalized 2012 thing and the Earth is still spinning, but I sense that things could be a lot more comfortable for you had we never fooled around with atom splitting, or at least, if after Hiroshima and Chernobyl we would have cut our losses. We could not have made the mountains and oceans of radioactive waste go away, as you know, (now many centuries after my generation and the one before us tried to ‘fool Mother Nature’) there is still no solution, but conditions on our beloved Earth might well be much more conducive to good health, happiness, economic stability and broad cooperation of her nations if we had stopped that Nuclear Renaissance early in the 21st century.

Many of my peers knew better than to support that backwards movement, and some worked feverishly to ‘stop the insanity’, but [I fear] it wasn’t enough. I know now, that many of the thoughtful anti-nuke/pro-life activists did not even fully understand the technology, but did understand that everything made by man fails and that failures and even small glitches with systems using highly radioactive materials would injure all life-forms for all time, and it was easy for them to understand that such a sentence delivered to everyone for all time, whatever the claimed need, was simply not acceptable.

From my ‘freer perspective’ (if we allow an imagined ’knowing’ from beyond the veil imposed on physicality) I too now clearly see that we, back at the turn of the 20th – 21st centuries never did really ‘gamble with nuclear folly’ (gamble with your welfare) as some clamed, because in fact, we had a sure-thing. Everyone at the time, save a miniscule percentage of the population suffering from profound mental handicaps, had the intellect to grasp the blindingly obvious facts about nuclear games which are so graphically illustrated in what is left of the world around you and the bodies of the people in your suffering society. Long before that primitive time early in the 21st century, when the fateful Nuclear Renaissance was proposed there were mountains of irrefutable evidence/proof regarding the negative aspects of ‘radioactive experimentation’. All humans had measurable levels of radioactive contamination in their bodies, mothers passed it along in breast milk and fathers, through their sperm. Simple lab tests could accurately pinpoint the age of a person by measuring the percentage and calibrating the placement of radioactive markers in teeth and bones.

There really wasn’t an argument… The corporate government invented one.

We could all understand the connection, yet some of us used everything at our disposal to put reality out of our minds. In our (my) defense, it was a scary and confusing time. It was the infancy of the age of hyper-information and there were ten counters to every story. Everything that our fathers had counted on for stability was changing, for a while there, it seemed like the whole of society was crumbling… I’m surprised that the race survived at all, though not in very good condition I see.

It may be hard for people of your time (when neuro-empathetic communication is the norm, and ‘privacy’ is only an historic artifact) to imagine, but, back then many people did not think for themselves. Many of us relied on mainstream news for information and to feed us opinion. Back then, what was called ‘the news’ was (for the most part) actually a twisted form of low class entertainment authored and programmed by ruthless, selfish, money-worshiping corporate enterprises, the same forces that controlled the governments. As things became extremely confusing and our ability to reason diminished, in large part because of the compounding stressors, including pollutions of many (new to the species) kinds, and not the least of which was propagandized, implanted fear and frankly, measurable levels of radiological contamination from the very sloppy technology at the heart of this matter… some of us fell into apathy and too many others relinquished any remaining hint of critical thinking ability, ‘donned the sheep skin’ so to speak and followed the herd in any direction that the political faces pushed. As what is now history to you demonstrates, that was a big mistake since the political faces were (could only be) the puppets of the most gratuitously greedy among us.

The greed was so extreme that they knowingly sold the well-being of their very own children and grandchildren for bigger yachts. The country called the United States enjoyed the greatest opportunity to move things in a healthy direction, the powers controlling its government effectively did just the opposite. I know now that it was lazy of me to choose my temporal comfort and to render whole huge tracts of the only Earth uninhabitable, at the price of your health and happiness. Please know that the news and the leaders assured us that the juice required to fire up TV screens and operate the ski-lifts and casinos flowed necessarily from nuclear generating facilities.

Many among us at the time knew that wasn’t so, indeed, there had been, since at least the mid-20th century, numerous proven technologies which were relatively clean, green and renewable, they were ruthlessly blacklisted, slandered and suppressed. Actually, we could have lived very comfortably without any nukes and even without burning much more coal, but the situation was not portrayed that way. Even if nukes would have been essential to the provision of our creature-comforts, clearly it would not have been worth the price that you and the bleeding world you have inherited now pay.

For the apathy, the carelessness and the selfish decisions of myself and many of my 21st century brothers and sisters I sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart. The way I understand it… we can’t go back, we cannot undo the assaults of our mistakes, I wish we could, or at least I wish I had been among those who resisted the nuclear invasion, then it would be much easier to face you now. And you know, we could have stopped it if more of us had just gotten up off our pastry-stuffed butts and said NO!

My generation inherited a world that needed some work, but the planet was still relatively healthy, and a darn nice place to live. Some of the folks of those few generations changed all that with unprecedented speed. Now I can see that the Human race does indeed qualify as intelligent life, yet is not nearly smart enough to fool around with radioactivity without hurting someone, everyone.
Back in the day we did a lot of stuff ‘just because we could’. What a shame.

Please Aquarians, if you can find it in your hearts, forgive me, and if you can’t, well I don’t blame you, but please, don’t do something ‘just because you can’ without knowing beyond the shadow of a doubt that the consequences are completely benign.

Sincerely,

- Your Name Here -, One of those who just let it happen.

We may still have a chance to rewrite the future for the better.

If enough of us stand up for the rights of our grandchildren and ‘JUST SAY NO’ to nuclear insanity, we can stop the insanity from progressing. We can concentrate on the important business of dealing with the nuclear mess already poisoning our bodies, our minds and our home-planet.
We can turn this mess around and direct our human-genius in a direction which gives the future a chance.

Right now an army of radioactive lobbyists is ‘all aglow’, delivering a constant stream of unforgettable favors and arm-twisting threats to our representatives. In return, Washington is overflowing with subsidies, incentives, bale-outs, guarantees and giveaways of the peoples’ money designed to satisfy the insatiable appetite the Nuke-Corps.

Support for this nuclear insanity will stop WHEN WE STOP IT.

You are only a few clicks away from lending your helping hand. It won’t cost a penny. You can save the future for free.

What’s it going to be? How will the great-grandkids receive your legacy?

How will you experience life in the near future?

Will you be beaten down by effects of increasing systemic radiation or live healthfully as you (we all) deserve?

Will you fear terrorist attacks at the reactor near you or feel relatively safe as you tuck the kids in at night?

Will you be forced to pay ever-escalating utility rates (because of this goofy technology which costs more that it delivers) and your share of guarding, monitoring and futilely trying to contain uncontainable nuclear waste, or will you feel some of the burden begin to ease as we move in a sensible direction?

Please consider taking a moment help get us off of this imminent radioactive train wreck.

The burdens imposed on the near and far future by today’s nuclear apathy or empty assurances won’t be lessened one iota because someone in Washington tells us it’s all OK. It’s not OK.

I know your time is valuable and appreciate your kind attention.
You can help our nation do what is right and the world will follow.

Oh yeah, one more easy way to help:

Help the “Nuclear Renaissance” Crumble
Dear Friends,
Here’s a quick, handy action help the “nuclear renaissance” crumble!
BACKGROUND
Though Bush’s fantasy “nuclear renaissance” appears to meltdown before our eyes as 19 of 27 announced new nuclear reactors are cancelled or tabled in favor of efficiency and alternatives, a few reactors are unfortunately still rockin’ along in the second year of the new administration.
Notably, Southern Co.’s Vogtle reactors in Georgia and SCG&E’s Summer reactors in South Carolina are first in line with hands out for TAXPAYER-FUNDED loan guarantees which are reported to be rolling out from U.S. Department of Energy very soon. Besides the obvious socialism involved with bailing out the faltering nuclear industry, the reactors proposed for both projects are the ill-fated Westinghouse AP1000 design, just sent back to the drawing board for at least one year for serious safety concerns by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
ACTION!
E-mail U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu at: The.Secretary@hq.doe.gov
Title your e-mail: NO LOAN GUARANTEES FOR AP1000 PROJECTS
Copy and paste the sample letter below, or write your own, but DO IT TODAY!!! Stop the Speeding Nuclear Bailout!!
SAMPLE LETTER:
Dear Energy Secretary Chu,
I am writing you to ask that you stop immediate payouts from the ill-advised taxpayer-funded nuclear loan guarantee program, an out-of-step legacy from the Bush administration’s fantasy “nuclear renaissance.”
Two Westinghouse AP1000 reactor proposals, in Georgia and in South Carolina, are the only remaining hold-outs of the rush to announce new reactors in recent years. Most of the new reactors have been cancelled or tabled in the face of better alternatives and escalating financial risks for nuclear reactors.
The ongoing interest of South Carolina Gas & Electric to add reactors at Summer in South Carolina and of Southern Company to build reactors at Vogtle in Georgia is maintained solely by the unwholesome enticement of taxpayer-funded loan guarantees promised by the U.S. Department of Energy.
SCG&E and Southern Co. have both testified before their respective Public Service Commissions that they persist in pursuing nuclear power because they “don’t want to lose their place in line at the DOE.”
The unfinished and unlicensed AP1000 reactor design has been, as you are aware, sent back to the drawing board for deep revisions by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Dr. Chu, your work with renewable energy at DOE speaks for itself. Non-poisonous renewable energy sources are ready to free us from the security risks and environmental degradation of nuclear and coal.
I beg you to use the power of your office to protect U.S. taxpayers from bad investments in drawing-board nuclear reactors.
Respectfully, e your name and address … you may receive a reply)
Send your letter

PEACE!

Given that this was posted in 2010

Quote vegan3@peoplepc.com:

...Well, we got through that sensationalized 2012 thing and the Earth is still spinning...

I'm assuming he was referring to the security breach at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oakridge, Tennessee on July 28, 2012 by the ultra-sinister Sister Megan Rice and her two friends. [Unlikely that he is referring to Fukushima because that was in 2011]

How clever she was to bide her time all these decades so that when she made her move it would be as a harmless appearing octogenarian. There can be no arguing that when she was in her seventies she knew her eighties were just around the corner.

It's hard to say since the memo is itself of such deranged construction, but there is probably a reference to this type of special circumstance in the recently released July 16, 2010 DOJ memo by David J. Barron (who at this time is still several years away from making the claim that it was only after weeks of torture that he agreed to assemble a memo which would be able to stand up to scrutiny so long as no one ever got to see it).

Anyway. Just noting the obvious TimeLine breach - someone else please take care of all the paperwork on that - either I misplaced my supply of multi-dimensional document substrates or I never had any here.

Final Statement to Bill the "biologist" who, in so many words, is repeating the mantra that the solution to nuclear pollution is dilution. This totally ignores food chain realities expressed by the ingestion and concentration of radionuclides in bivalves and other bottom of the food chain filter feeders which are then ingested by fish, thereby increasing the concentration, not decreasing it (as Bill claims) in higher order life forms like Homo sapiens.

Cardiovascular disease and death increases in that area you claim "only" had increases in thyroid cancer are linked DIRECTLY to guess what radionuclide that is distributed uniformly in human muscle tissues? You obviously haven't looked at the Chernobyl effects data very closely. Also, you claim that my statement that 1 in three persons will get cancer at present is false. Google it! And yes Bill, the increase in cardiovascular disease and deaths, though you nukers will deny it, is definitely linked to radionuclide absorption in muscle tissue. It's not just about cholesterol and sugar! The radionuclide Ce-137 deposition map of the USA is public information LONG before Fufkushima.

Do you want to prepare a graph showing cancer and cardiovascular disease rate increases in this country and Ce-137 deposition from power plants and nuclear bomb tests? Probably not. You prefer to reach for your "correlation is not causation" straw.

If you really think my answer was long or disjointed and irrelevant, you have never read a research paper. If you want to descend into nitpicking minutiae to muddle the issues so I can be accused of getting "off topic" by the anonyMouse Steven, only for you to leap back to generalizations after I give you proof in a detailed answer, that again shows you are into propaganda, not science.

So, for the readers, I will present a really brief summary of the points I made . The proof is in that "long" answer I gave for those who have scientist level attention spans.

1. Mutagenicity of ionizing radiation was proven as far back as the discovery that Drosophila melanogaster has DOUBLE or more the mutation rate (none of said mutations beneficial, by the way) in an abandoned uranium mine. Of note to the readers is that Insects are more resistant to ionizing radiation than mammals because of the higher percentage of water in our tissues. One of the PRIMARY targets of therapy for cancer caused by radiation (Acute Radiation Sickness) are the non-receptor and receptor tyrosine kinase enzymes because of the PROVEN link between radionucllde exposure and tumorigenesis.

2. Target theory, as opposed to LNT is the only way to accurately measure damage from ionizing radiation. The damage is inversely proportional to the distance of the emitter. That is nuclear physics 101. Ingestion of radionuclides is far more damaging than the LNT standards people like Bill and AEC accept (wrongly and inaccurately) because the distance is in nanometers. I can give you a web sight where you can do the math on the group of photon energies for any radionuclide. At nanometer distances, it AIN'T PRETTY, Bill.

3. The main subject here, energy sources and COST, is defined rather selectively by the nukers to exclude AND minimize the health costs to, not just human populations, but the biosphere as a whole that we require to be a viable species, never mind a few centuries of baby sitting used fuel rod assemblies on the taxpayer dime.

The facts prove that, not only is Renewable Energy cheaper, it is the only sustainable alternative because of it's potential for zero waste products that damage the life forms in the food chain vital to our existence. The only nuclear powered furnace we need is the sun. We not only can scale up to 100% renewable energy, any other option is unsustainable and undermines the viability of the biosphere and that of future generations of Homo sapiens.

If you agree, please sign this petition to President Obama:

Quote agelbert:

Exposed: The 1950s mendacious pro-nuclear propaganda (that most Americans still wrongly believe) for MIC predatory corporate profit that building over 400 nuclear power plants during the postwar period was justified in order to make Weapons Grade Plutonium for "national security".

http://renewablerevolution.createaforum.com/nuke-puke/no-we-never-needed-lwr-nuclear-power-plants-to-make-nuclear-weapons/msg1332/#msg1332

We have been lied to over and over and over again for short term profits (not for us, but for a few well connected "investors") that have fleeced us 24/7 for well over half a century from over 400 nuclear power plants that were totally unnecessary (and not even designed for that purpose) for weapons grade plutonium. But YOU thought we needed them to make bombs and it "helped" our national security in the cold war, right? WRONG! All the details with the appropriate references are at the link. The story of Fossil fuels is WORSE because it has gone on for over a century!

We need to stop this fleecing, not simply because of the uncalled for profits of the few over the many, but because of the degradation of our biosphere. Our survival is at stake. This is not just about distribution of wealth.

Watch this video and you will see what we ALL must do NOW, to stop the insanity of the current world dystopic economic system that is a cancer killing the biosphere that we all require to live and thrive.

The next short video explains graphically how the dirty energy industry has ALWAYS dealt with the TRUTH that renewable energy is the ONLY energy resource that is sane in a world of finite resources.

We just have to keep pushing to make Victor Hugo's saying come true in our time:

“There Is Nothing So Powerful As An Idea Whose Time Has Come.”

Here’s to the crazy ones.

The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently.

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

“Because The People Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change The World, Are The Ones Who Do.”

Let's DO IT!

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
