Indian Point reactor automatically shuts down again, feds investigating

An unplanned shut down is one of the worst things that can happen to a reactor.  It is one of the few things the NRC takes seriously and what led to a red finding for Indian Point 2 some time back. It takes a week to start back up, after it is determined what triggered...

How Nuclear Power Causes Global Warming

Another good article from Harvey Wasserman “Supporters of nuclear power like to argue that nukes are the key to combatting climate change. Here’s why they are dead wrong. “Every nuclear generating station spews about two-thirds of the energy it burns inside its reactor core into the environment. Only one-third is converted into electricity. Another tenth...

Nuclear’s Last Stand? An Editorial by Harvey Wasserman

“Nuclear’s Last Stand? New York’s Cuomo Rushes in to Save Dying Plants by Harvey Wasserman New York’s “liberal” Governor Andrew Cuomo is trying to ram through a complex backdoor bailout package worth up to $11 billion to keep at least four dangerously decrepit nuclear reactors operating. To many proponents of safe energy, the move comes...

New Study Casts Doubt on the Future of Nuclear Power

“While it’s been touted by some energy experts as a so-called “bridge” to help slash carbon emissions, a new study suggests that a commitment to nuclear power may in fact be a path towards climate failure. “For their study, researchers at the University of Sussex and the Vienna School of International Studies grouped European countries...
"Take a look at this momentum"

“Take a look at this momentum”

From our friends at Stop The Cuomo Tax/No Nuclear Bailout: “We’re just getting started with our statewide push to Stop the Cuomo Tax and end the nuclear bailout that would cost New Yorkers nearly $8 billion in higher electricity rates. But already we’ve seen incredible momentum out of the gate. This week organizers staged a...

Compete or suckle: Should troubled nuclear reactors be subsidized?

Nuclear fission is neither emissions free (gaseous radioactive and radioactive fluid releases as normal part of the process) nor is it carbon free (the only part that is carbon free is the chain reaction. All the mining, milling, enrichment, construction and safety system are carbon fuel based). There is no energy related reason to place...

Japan’s $320 Million Gamble at Fukushima: An Underground Ice Wall

Here is the under-reported ongoing nightmare of a failed nuclear plant. Five years in and no solution in sight, while other articles have shown The MASSIVE CONTAMINATION OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN. (That’s right, the ocean, not just the Fukushima area) Shut them all down ASAP before we have the next catastrophe. “FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI NUCLEAR POWER STATION...
