WOAI, Aug 24, 2017 (emphasis added): Hurricane Harvey is setting its sights on the area around Corpus Christi… Located not far from where Harvey is expected to make landfall is the South Texas Nuclear Project nuclear power plant. Spokesman Buddy Eiler says the facility was ‘designed to sustain a storm,’ and there are plans in place to shut down operations if necessary…

STP Nuclear Operating Co., Aug 24, 2017: A Hurricane Warning has been declared for several counties in Southeast Texas, including Matagorda County. Hurricane Harvey is expected to make landfall near Corpus Christi on Friday, possibly as a category 3… At STP, we are tracking this storm closely and are making on-site preparations

STP Nuclear Operating Co., Aug 24, 2017: It is expected to intensify to a Category 3 hurricane before landfall… Significant flooding is likely for much of coastal and southeast Texas…

Washington Post, Aug 24, 2017: The extremely dangerous storm is predicted to strengthen and plow into southeast Texas on Friday… An incredible amount of rain… up to 35 inches, is predicted along the middle and upper Texas coast, because the storm is expected to stall and unload torrents for four to six straight days… Marshall Shepherd, a past-president of the American Meteorological Society, tweeted that he feared an “epic flood catastrophe.”… “In all these years, it’s rare that I’ve seen a hurricane threat that concerns me as much as this one does,” said Rick Knabb, hurricane expert at The Weather Channel and formerly the director of the National Hurricane Center… So much rain is predicted that the National Weather Service had to add a new high-end category to its forecast map

Minneapolis Star Tribune, Aug 24, 2017: Biblical Flooding Expected With Hurricane Harvey… NOAA’s 3 KM WRF model shows a landfall pressure of 912 millibars… which suggests a Category 4-5 intensity storm coming ashore near Corpus Christi… some meteorologists were agog over Harvey’s rainfall potential, using words like “unsettling” and “borderline unfathomable.”… All of these signals point to a setup that favors a major disaster

Bloomberg, Aug 25, 2017: “We are expecting catastrophic, life-threatening flooding in Southeastern Texas,” said Carl Erickson, a senior meteorologist for AccuWeather…

New Republic, Aug 24, 2017: [R]ainfall looks like it could produce truly unprecedented flooding, as meteorologist Eric Holthaus has pointed out…

KIII, Aug 25, 2017: Estimated winds could top 125 miles per hour with gusts up to 145 mph

KENS transcript, Aug 24, 2017: “Double-digit rainfall totals — and some nearly apocalyptic — are within reach. I mean this really could go to 20, 30 inches of rain.”

CBS News transcript, Aug 24, 2017: “We are talking epic flooding is possible in Eastern Texas — and that’s not an exaggeration.”

    Well, besides the occasional sacrifice zone, the fact that each running nuke plant produces about 3 nuclear bombs worth of radiation, each day, makes it hard to justify nuclear in my book

    WoW-'A total of more than 800,000 barrels a day of refining capacity were taken offline ahead of the storm, according to an estimate from data-tracking firm Genscape.'

    We are so 'addicted'… That is about 25,000,000 gallons of gasoline/diesel a day…3.2million gallons of jet fuel..

    small piece of a very big pie

    http://www.wsj.com/livecoverage/hurricane-harvey-live-coverage

    • How high will gas prices rise?

      With 2 or more feet of rain expected through Wednesday of next week the refinery(s) won't be coming back to full production anytime soon…

      If there are no other problems (other than simple flooding) the price of fuel is likely to rise .50 per gallon…

      …that's barring any other problems created by the rain and winds.

      Fill you tanks now as the speculators will likely raise prices on the gas already in the tanks at your local gas station.

      Should not be legal to do, we call that price gouging….

      The suppliers of this existing fuel (already in their tanks) didn't pay any more for what's in the tanks now…

      And if there is a problem (and there easily could be) we could face a shortage that will keep fuel prices high for a long time…

      So they began the shutdown ahead of the storm but those refineries just don't stop on a dime, it takes time to bring the to a cold shutdown…

      Funny thing though, they decided to leave the nuclear power plants running…

      Hummmmmmmmmmmm, shutting down the refineries makes money (through market speculation) and some may get rich over a small fuel shortage…

      BUT the nuclear plants that could be 1000's of times more devastating in case of failure were left to operate because it would cost money to shut them down as a precaution…

      What are they thinking? Dollars count more than people??

      A triple obvious wowsers…

    Harvey rapidly intensified in the Gulf of Mexico and struck Texas as a Category 4.

    “Two large-scale ingredients played a role in the quick strengthening….

    “…Key Ingredient 2: High Oceanic Heat…

    "’Harvey passed over a warm ocean eddy with high heat content for over six hours Friday morning, and the extra energy the eddy provided allowed Harvey’s central pressure to fall a spectacular 15 (millibars) in just two hours, from 967 mb at 4 a.m. CDT to 952 mb at 6 a.m. CDT,’ said Jeff Masters in a Weather Underground Category 6 blog Friday….”

    Before Hurricane Harvey, wireless carriers lobbied against upgrades to a national emergency alert system
    A wonky debate at the FCC has real-life consequences, and public-safety officials aren’t happy

    For years, the Federal Communications Commission has endeavored to upgrade the sort of short text-based messages — often accompanied by a loud alarm — that authorities have used since 2012 to warn Americans about rising floods, abducted children and violent criminals at large.

    But efforts to bring those alerts into the digital age — requiring, for example, that they include multimedia and foreign-language support — have been met with skepticism or opposition from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile, and even some device makers, too.

    https://www.recode.net/2017/8/26/16205010/hurricane-harvey-texas-att-verizon-wireless-telecom-emergency-alert-system

    • "Before Hurricane Harvey, wireless carriers lobbied against upgrades to a national emergency alert system"

      Yes they did and they are right to do so…

      What's the point of a alert? To get it to the end user as quickly as possible…

      Multi media would slow the distribution of these messages (a no brainer) by increasing the band with usage…

      Would also cause conflicts with devices, especially older phones…

      Imagine sending 1 million texts all at once…

      How long would it take to complete? Now add foo foo and photos, now how long would it take to complete the same notification?

      A emergency alert is just that, an emergency, these messages should be sent ASAP in plain text with no dancing panda bear logos or other unimportant crap…

      As for language issues that should be handled at the end user (and is already on most modern smart phones).

      The truth is you can already send a simple link to another source…

      Make plain text faster? A very good idea…

      Send multi media alerts? Too bandwidth intensive and would slow down the entire process…

      When it comes to emergency alerts time and access is the guiding factor.

      If you bog the entire network down with foo foo nothing works, not even your cellphone…

      Multi media emergency alerts? Dumbest thing I've read lately…

      And a Trojan horse to spend our tax money on nothing.

      They should call that plan the "Mulit Head" media effort to make a large chunk of tax money disappear…

      • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

        20 trillion gone..mathematically impossible to pay back this massive debt..and now we are suppose to be worrying about wasting tax money/dollars?

        So many needy hands have been out all over the world..what are a few more hands.. in the cookie jar?

        • No doubt obewan something is amiss (and has been)…

          The question is now how to make folks aware of obvious wastes of time and money!!!

          We don't seem to have enough of either one now….

          But I see people jump on any band wagon that comes along no matter how ridiculous.

          And all is lost is on the forefront of everyone's thinking…

          The plan? If there is a evil plan it's obviously working, everything is a conspiracy except the real conspiracy which is?

          To unempower your involvement in real decision making and stop positive involvement and stop you thinking toward the future while you are inundated with fairy tale tripe of no consequence to keep you occupied.

          If we want to stop the crazy spending while children go hungry and the world slips into a coma from pollution…

          We have to ignore the crazy fairy tale distractions and study the real problems…

          The distraction of lies and imaginary problems created by those seeking fame and/or free money is the real conspiracy!

        • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

          So the next question should be..why do we pay any taxes at all?

          Just let them print funny money as needed and we just keep all of our own money!

          • "It Is Mathematically Impossible To Pay Off All Of Our Debt"

            That's both true and false and let me show you what I'm saying…

            Contribution and math are two different things…

            A solid contribution to the world is worth more than money…

            And as you said when you have a gigantic copy machine you can print paper at will…

            Money is a illusion, truth and fact is real…

            Math never adds up to reality even in physics…

            And yep I said physics. Many will argue that math is the only true measure but that too comes from those that believe it or have a agenda.

            https://phys.org/news/2015-12-quantum-physics-problem-unsolvable-godel.html

            So if the math the ideas and assumptions were actually correct it would resolve and would not be unsolvable.

            The truth versus math lie has been proven.

            What we do is who we are and what we are starts with what we believe is truth.

            Think you are going to climb a mountain and you probably will…

            Think all is lost and it probably is…

            That's about outlook and control, so if you don't want to be controlled don't let the nay sayers control you with these cheap putup stories of gloom and doom and start to formulate a plan to stop the bad and create good in it's place.

              Nice..you did not answer the question..since the debt is funny money printed by those that spent it on their desires..do we need to pay taxes to those that spent money that was not theirs to spend and that was funny money in the first place once the debt = $1.00?

              -$1.00 forward to -20 trillion = -100% funny money!

                • No it's real!!! Nothing to do with who posted it on youtube…

                  It's the old power of positive thinking defined and it really does work…

                  What you think is who you are and what you attract into your life whether you realize it or not…

                  If you watch that thing and implement the principle you will catch yourself doing it and it can change your life.

                  It is a real principle and is a real thing too…

                  If we focus on good, we will find ways of getting problems out of our life.

                  Focus on bad and be depressed and unempowered to take control of the things we as individuals can do…

                  And you know it's all about individuals, if everybody did good, bad would disappear…

                      Well the craziness did come and allot of people lost their lives over a fairy tale but the world lived on.

                      And then I got to Dallas and before long what do you know? Another bunch of the world is ending fools committed suicide because the world was coming to a end… There's another 23 people that the world ended for sure enough…

                      But the rest of us lived on…

                      All this happened in short order many miles apart…

                      The world was ending for them…

                      What you pursue will be your outcome.

                      And the rest of the world will live on and some of us may can even be happy through life's struggles.

                It is all pointless if Congress is always going to spend more than they take in. Eventually there will be an 'overnight' default when you least expect it. Normally in that case, either new money is issued and you get less new money in exchange or the money already in circulation is devalued, but prices stay the same making everything more expensive i.e. you need more devalued money to buy the same items as before.

                Martin Armstrong always makes the case to not issue US bonds but to just print new money. Each way, new money is added and put into circulation but there in no interest due on printed money. Only held bonds are due interest payments, usually goes to a foreign government that eventually comes back into our local economies anyway and that interest payment is usually newly printed money since the US is technically broke.

                So, it all involves new money but printing money needs no interest payment. US bond money needs an interest payment (more new printed money to pay that interest payment).

                • Yep a dollar was supposed to represent gold right?

                  But there is only so much (currently found) gold in the world while at the same time the population has exploded.

                  So how do you get money to survive in everyone's hands?

                  Answer? Print more notes.

                  While it does in fact devalue the note, it allows for everyone to have some. That's great in principle and is the reason why the world operates on fiat currency today.

                  The problem is if you could print money you'd fire up the press anytime you wanted something and that's a want, not a need.

                  So we see the dollar devalued, and that is understandable.

                  Now add some misinformation and skulduggery and you get problems like we see today.

                  So printing more money is not the issue, WHY we print more money and for what purpose is…

                      The monetary system is not hard to figure out. I lend you money I dont have and you lend me money you dont have and we make a killing on the interest. Thats right. China owes us about as much as we owe them and we are busy just paying the interest on that debt. The federal reserve actually is owed a large part of the debt, and collects interest on it. But…but the fed reserve is for the people right? How is that different than lending yourself money, expecting to make money on the investment? This ONLY works in the real world (the REAL real world, not yours) if companies can get productive efficiency out of scale and mechanized production. But in reality this is why the rich get richer as the poor get poorer.

                      Adobe Flash Flaws Dominate Exploit Kits In 2016

                      The top 10 vulnerabilities this year were mostly Adobe Flash, followed by Internet Explorer, according to a Recorded Future study.

                      Jebus, you have to give him some credit..RO does work!

                      I would not trust any pipe found in the ground..ever. 🙂

                      Just think about how many pipes have been installed in the ground over the past 200 years.

                      If we thought we had to many roads on the surface that we live on.. just think about what is under that same surface.

                      Scary! 🙁

                      That is not what I am saying.

                      Of course RO works.

                      You water company should be using it.

                      But that is not going to help that sickly looking squirrel clinging to that tree over there.

                      Sorry for the empasis on a solutions for all life…

                    • And in reality the reason flash is being fazed out is because of a turd fight between apple and the PC/Microsoft and android.

                      It may interest you to know only apple had this exploit and it was patched some time ago…

                      But it made apple look bad as this was in fact their OS/software that allowed it in the first place, the rumors spread quickly it was a problem without the mention of mac or apple…

                      Just another totally fake bit of misinformation…

                      Unless you own a older mac…

                      And Microsoft has had WAY many other exploit problems than Mac but I guess when apple made the claim that there computers were free from viral attacks and exploits to sell more computers to unknowing buyers they had to come up with something.

                      You water company should be using it.'

                      There is a reason why they do not.
                      Cost and loss.

                      That is why 'you' pay for the waste water 'loss'. The 4-5 gallons down the drain for each gallon RO'ed.

                      If they had it together, Municipal Water suppliers would find a use for the waste…irrigation or ??? at the consumers end. They do not.
                      And no one wants to RO toilet flush water, hand wash, sprinkler, car wash, etc etc etc

                      Like many other things, this will run its course, be recognized as wasteful, and come to an end.

                      For now, its a little extra profit. 😆

                      The real question is why don't you know this.

                      You MUST filter ANY drinking water at the end point for it to be free from contaminates, no matter where you live or what the supply source…

                      They put a draw pipe in the river to make potable water and process waste water (sewage) and dump it right back into the river and then that flows down stream to the next draw pipe.

                      Rinse, lather, repeat all the way down the river…

                      You know what a water treatment plant is right?

                      You know that water plants are by water sources right?

                      You know that they place a biiiiig pipe into the water source and draw 100's of gallons at a time out of the water source (river? lake?).

                      You realize that there is waste water form the treatment of tap water right???

                      You know that they return the waste water through another big pipe back into the river they pulled the untreated water out of right?

                      So if they desired to RO water at the treatment plant where would they put the waste water from RO? The same place they do now with waste water from tap water processing!!!

                      Right back in the river they pulled it out of…

                  China owes the US 1.3$ Trillion
                  The U.S. debt to China is $1.102 trillion

                  wouldnt you love to siphon some of that interest money?

                  Think of money as a trading coupon. If one coupon is equal to one watermelon, and you print more coupons, then what happens…the value of melons goes down? No! People can buy more melons? NO. Did the government/federal reserve ever give you some of that new printed money? No again. Only banks and lenders/stock players see that money. The common worker will never be given free printed money. The money goes to money lenders or "investors". Whether its U.S. Treasury securities or a bank loan for a house…the receiver of wealth didnt have to TRADE anything…they had FREE coupons…called usury.

                  Look…the Fed says, we are going to inject more money into the economy by lowering the amount of funds banks must hold against deposits in bank accounts. Its a small amount! 3%? Wouldnt it be nice to have a million dollars but be able to lend 33 million and collect interest? So anyway, the banks can loan more money and now someone buys a house. Did the home buyer 'get more money'? No! He simply has to pay interest that he didnt have to before…now he is in debt. A $100,000 loan with a 4 percent fixed interest rate means you end up paying like $175,000. You are poorer, not richer!

                    The joke is on China when buying low interest bonds where they could have invested in the US stock market for a better rate of return.

                    Soon all government bonds will be dumped in favor of owning US stocks. Doesn't matter what pundits opinions are, they are already missed the boat on the first leg up in the stock markets.

                    Money is not entering the system because people are trying to save and not spend. If Trump is assassinated or impeached, the stock markets will still go up. If he survives all this nonsense, the stock markets will go up to nosebleed heights before a final crash.

                    Trump gets his tax plan through and even back to Glass-Steagall, it will only temporarily extend a period of growth because 'tax and spend more' Congress will crash us in debt eventually.

                    The US consumer is propping up the entire world even with a low and slow growth rate. Without the US consumer the world crashes.

                    All this talk about rates, money injection, debt and banking is based on what the US consumer is doing and how they handle it.

                    US consumers and taxpayers bear the effects of US debt. Only the world's confidence in US labor output puts value in the US dollar.

    I was going to the store a few hours ago. It was dark. A cat ran out in front of my bike at the same time a car was coming around the corner of the intersection. The cat ran right into the path of the oncoming car. At the last second the cat jumped up and bit the bumper or the bumper skirt. I heard it hit. It thudded against the car and fell down by the wheel. I was sure the cat was dead.

    I said, "Ahh SHIT!" After making the turn at the intersection, I looked back on the lighted roadway being sure I would see the cat in the roadway. There was no cat there.

    This proves that the earth is round. The cat must have rolled on the curvature of the earth. Nah, just kidding. We have a pretty good road department here, but not THAT good. What the hell? I guess cats do have nine lives. We should send them in to clean up Fukushima.

      I would settle for this kind of spending if they shut down all public nuclear power generating plants.

      Conceding military aspects of nuclear deterrent, they can be left to run breeder reactors and such for their war games needs but at least public reactors would eliminated.

      The reason Texas nuke plants do not shut down is, money. They are operating on a thin profit margin as it is. Can't afford an unplanned shutdown unless absolutely necessary.

      On the other hand, Arnie said it best, you do not want to see nuke plants and sandbags used in the same sentence when it comes to emergencies.

    Is Distilled Water More Dangerous Than Tap Water?

    “…Two main issues need to be addressed here: (1) the co-purification of organic contaminants with water distillation, and (2) the long-term health effects of drinking low-mineral water. You will see that using a distiller is still the best, most consistent way of getting clean, pure water….”
    http://www.myhdiet.com/healthnews/rev-malkmus/is-distilled-water-more-dangerous-than-tap-water/

    • "Is Distilled Water More Dangerous Than Tap Water"

      I totally agree with what Dr. Donaldson said with a couple of exceptions…

      1) The minerals left behind in the pot may not be 100 percent minerals anymore…

      Cleaning the boil pot is a problem from a hazard standpoint…

      Think about this for a moment…

      If you put tap water into one and the water was contaminated with arsenic or lead you will be exposed to them when cleaning the pot not to mention radioactive metals if they are present…

      2) A carbon filter to trap gasses?

      Well what happens if and when the filter traps these gasses in them?

      It fouls and produces them in concentration or you change it and get exposed to some degree no matter what.

      So the only way to really avoid contamination all together is to RO the water before placing it in the still…

      My RO reads 2ppm as I'm typing this…

      Distilled reads 0ppm

      The maintenance, purchase price, power usage and pressure dangers (not to mention a 80 pound device when full of water on my counter) didn't make since to me to get that reduction…

      So I agree that if you use RO water the dangers and maintenance are reduced but by the time you purchase a distiller and a RO system and maintain them and pay the power costs for electricity for me it was just not worth it. If you do the math on purchase price (RO system and distiller), figure the filter changes and the time spent cleaning the unit. It's cheaper to purchase distilled…

    • AirSepTech AirSepTech

      Your ongoing mis-info yields nothing but loser bullet points.

      'It's cheaper to purchase distilled…' I doubt it, but you believe it, and offer 0 explanation.

      It 2.5 kilowatts to distill 1 gallon. Here, that is about 17 cents. Distilled runs 80-$1.20 at the store, plus the wasted bottles, say 300 plus a year. Plastics? Concerned? Energy wasted producing and recycling? yeppers gomer.

      Next:

      Reverse Osmosis (RO) filters use membrane technology to filter impurities (minerals, calcium, chloride, sodium, chlorine, etc) from the water. The systems require periodic backwash to clean the filter. Depending on the model, most RO filter systems* will discharge 4 to 20 gallons (15.1 L to 75.7 L) of backwash water for every gallon of filtered water it produces. This discharge water is commonly directed to the sewer drain line. The discharge water from an RO system is only slightly less pure than the source water entering the filter. The concentration of minerals in the discharge water is often less than 25% greater than the source water; well within safe drinking water standards and certainly suitable for irrigation or other alternate reuse applications.

      * In recent years, some manufacturers have developed innovative RO filter systems referred to as “zero-discharge”; discharging the backwash water into the water supply pipes. The “zero-discharge” refers to the fact that the backwash water is not discharged into the sewer system.

      More…

      • AirSepTech AirSepTech

        Zero 'discharge'…this is interesting…and illegal. Why do you think they 'require' backflow prevention on 'potable water'.

        So this method does not 'waste' the water down the sewer, it puts it back into the water supply so everyone can 'enjoy' it. Tell your neighbors, surly they will love that idea.

        In short, I personally don't give a flying-F what you choose, it is up to tribal knowledge, education level, and the spin that wins for all, even the dumb ones.

        Creating more waste, be it water waste, plastics, power, fuel, throw away filters and junk, manufacturing all this crap for fun and profit, it all has a price tag.

        Your kids will get that bill, guaranteed.

    Money and debt. There's so many opinions.

    If I print money and get caught, the government will throw me in a cage. I don't have the right to print money.

    But if I get together with a group of other individuals, we can authorize someone to print money and cage anyone who prints money individually. It's weird how a group of individuals can do something that would be illegal if attempted by an individual.

    It's like adding 2 + 2 and getting 3.

    OT – "Several years ago, little was known about the StingRay, a powerful surveillance device that imitates the function of a cell tower and captures the signals of nearby phones, allowing law enforcement officers to sweep through hundreds of messages, conversations and call logs.

    The secrecy around the technology, which can ensnare the personal data of criminals and bystanders alike, spurred lawsuits and demands for public records to uncover who was using it and the extent of its capabilities. In California, a 2015 law requires law enforcement agencies to seek permission at public meetings to buy the devices, and post rules for their use online.

    But a Los Angeles Times review of records from 20 of the state’s largest police and sheriff’s departments, plus the Alameda County district attorney’s office, found some agencies have been slow to follow or have ignored the law. Several that partner with federal agencies to work on cases are not subject to the law’s reporting requirements. The result is that little information on StingRay use is available to the public, making it hard to determine how wide a net the surveillance tools cast and what kind of data they gather."

  • If the pond (lake) walls fail we could see a tsunami on the gulf coast within yards of 2 reactors!

    Earthen walls surround the entire lake and include the back of the lake directly by the reactors.

    The crew has been onsite since early Friday and will remain at the site until (at least) Tuesday.

    Matagorda County Judge Nate McDonald has ordered a mandatory evacuation of the county

    The water is expected to rise in this area over the next 2 days and not recede quickly so it may even be Wednesday / Thursday before the plant workers can be relieved of duty and then another day more before the lake walls are out of stress dangers.

    60 posts, from 9:29pm yesterday through to 7:39 pm this evening. FM ? No, Drivel Pup.

      Yes, the Driveler changed up to repeating itself, kind of like the insane do, chanting in a corner, or closet.

      Seems the mall/pizza oven is a little too hot to handle.

      Frank, FM whatevveer said his last farewell with his last post which attaches a link, (below) that is very telling. FM is artificial intelligence and its supervisor was having a hard time calming down/ reconfiguring the logic matrix/algorithms that were uploaded. These algorithms were designed to shock, swear, confront, act drunk or drugged and attack those who interacted with it. Towards the end when thinks at ENE calmed down FM now had to switch gears and try to buddy up with other posters and cajole the conversation. This is his last post and notice anything different:

      It's so strange, I'm losing the ability to give a shit, read the articles and comments, or even post here.

      https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/enenews.com

      I didn't know that alexa was able to rate web sites. Why did he choose alexa? IMO this was his way of a F…You and expose that he was indeed Supervised Artificial Intelligence.

      It got to the point where all the posters except uni.. and Code were the only ones to have any posting with him, like he was a real person.
      When this happened his program could not take into account the ability to act like a human and his programmer was having to work his butt off to just keep up the farce that he was human. Too much work for his handlers.

      FM will be back because those who post here are some of the most resourceful researchers on the internet.

      Checkmate.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-17/how-a-harley-riding-ex-ally-of-villains-is-leading-a-nuke-revolt

    While Kawai now spends about 80 percent of his time in legal battles against power providers and the government without pay, he started his career pursuing much more lucrative cases

    “I did so many bad things,” Kawai says, recalling how in the 90s he turned his back on the corrupt businessmen and money-hungry upstarts he called clients. “I helped a lot of villains.”

    In 1994, Kawai began taking on anti-nuclear cases. He says the reason for his reincarnation is simple: he wanted to use the legal system to do good for society, and believed the growing use of atomic power was the biggest risk facing Japan, one of the world’s most earthquake-prone countries.

    “After losing so many times with everyone fighting cases individually, he created the strategy of bringing the lawyers together to share information,” said Hideyuki Ban, co-director of the non-profit antinuclear group Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center, who has known Kawai for nearly two decades. “We’ve been able to win an injunction twice because Kawai had collected expertise by calling on his network of lawyers.”

    Arpaio Pardon Proving To Be Final Straw?

    "Dear Americans: If you want to know what you REALLY would have done in the early years of the Nazi regime, consider what you are doing now."

    "Arpaio’s racially motivated crimes are not only voluminous, they are downright macabre. Had the recently pardoned Arizona sheriff committed any of these atrocities—let alone all of these atrocities—against European immigrants, he would currently be on trial before The Hague. The Phoenix New Times has been chronicling Arpaio’s crimes for twenty years. Here are a few of them, but I feel compelled to warn you they are graphic:"

  • Matagorda County – Everyone south of FM521 is included in the mandatory evacuation order, including the communities of Palacios, Collegeport, Matagorda, Sargent and Wadsworth.
    http://abc13.com/traffic/evacuation-orders-issued-in-epic-flooding-emergency/2337616/

    This is the county with the nuke plant.

    There is a river near the plant, and announcement was made tonight that dams upstream will be FORCED to release water while the deluge is also coming down from the hurricane, right into downtown Houston and suburbs..

    Wonder if the same will be true of any dams upstream of nuke plant?

    They don't release water from dams during deluges unless there is a risk of losing the dams. During previous hurricanes they held back all of the water, but not this time around.

    This is new, unknown territory.. two more days of Biblical deluges.

  • Wadsworth is about as far from the river as the nuclear plant, just on the other side of it.

    Are we gonna see the nuclear plant self evacuate?

    Wow, look at those rods wading through the flood waters.

  • Engineers with the Army Corps will likely have to release water from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs to reduce the risk of flooding to the Houston-metropolitan area, officials said.
    http://abc13.com/water-to-be-released-from-addicks-barker-reservoirs/2348619/

  • The Houston mayor did NOT call for mandatory evacuation for Houston; 6 MILLION PEOPLE.

    Areas that got a couple inches water during other hurricanes got 10 FEET up to today, and it will get worse. Roads are flooded now, with no way out.

    911 centers totally overwhelmed and people calling them get no answer despite calling them 50 times according to people coming out of flooded areas..

    Unless rains let up, expect things to go downhill and get much worse.. chaos, no place to put an unknown catastrophic number of people left with out any housing, nor anything else.

      But STP nuclear's website tells the workers (those not sequestered to the plant the last few days) on it's Facebook page,

      "Message to STP employees: STP to communicate upcoming work schedule on Sunday

      Please be aware that we will be communicating by 1600 tomorrow – Sunday, Aug. 27 – regarding reporting to work on Monday. We will communicate to managers and supervisors, and all site personnel regarding next week’s work schedule. "

      What if there had been an unseen compounding disaster and power had been lost, and Facebook would have been unavailable?

      What would they do. As is, three feet of water in the living room and the guys are on Facebook? Maybe they have Facebook at the emergency shelters, I don't know.

      Damned cell phone batteries only last a couple of days. Where can you plug in and charge your cellphone? with three feet of water in your house? Cell phones are not up to emergency situations. Like TEPCO, who did not think it was necessary to plan for extended external power loss, those in positions of power think their shit doesn't stink.

      What if a New Madrid earthquake type situation arises or a CME knocks out power to all our nuclear plants? Our cell phones go dead in two days and we cry and wail and moan and can't even get on Enenews to whine? What if Conca can't berate everyone about reality and Wade Allison can't say "So what?" Oh, just realized. Bring it on. At least there will be a bright side. No one will survive except those…

        A-holes in D.U.M.B.S.

        They will survive to tell the story of the Concas and the Allisons. "Top ten dumbasses" ha ha

        I am curious there must be other industries in addition to nuclear that are built "fail-unsafe" in case of total loss of power. I don't know of any, but people are really dumb.

  • Tropical Storm Allison suddenly formed 80 miles off the coast of Galveston, Texas, on Tuesday, June 5, 2001, no one expected that, five days later, it would go on record as one of the most devastating rain events in the history of the United States. Neither historical data nor weather forecasts could adequately predict this extraordinary storm that, before leaving the area, would dump as much as 80 percent of the area's average annual rainfall over much of Harris County, simultaneously affecting more than 2 million people. When the rains finally eased, Allison had left Harris County, Texas, with 22 fatalities, 95,000 damaged automobiles and trucks, 73,000 damaged residences, 30,000 stranded residents in shelters, and over $5 billion in property damage in its wake. Leaving 31 counties with declared disasters in Texas, Allison went on to spread disaster declarations to Louisiana (25 parishes), Florida (nine counties), Mississippi (5 counties) and Pennsylvania (2 counties). Allison was the costliest tropical storm in the history of the United States.

    That was back then.. this one is MUCH WORSE.. much more rain..

  • Another 20 to 30 inches of rain forecast.. already had that much up to now.

    TWO YEARS worth of rain in a couple days…

    Better get the ark ready.

    Better hope they have good SUPER FLOOD disaster planning..

    • unincredulous unincredulous

      Hope everyone has flood insurance. Then insurance companies will pay out the wazoo. And then the government will bail out the insurance companies. And then we will pay more taxes. And never mind hope nobody had flood insurance. They can just be refugees. Have to tell the Syrians, and all the others too bad. No vacancy. I read it costs more than a hundred grand to house the immigrants family for a year. Hell, most families don't make that much.

      Oh, hey. The bright side is that Texan refugees won't be demanding Sharia law

      Good time to reflect on Tropical Storm Etau (2015) 10 inches of rain at Fukushima Daiichi NPP nuclear ruins. Up to thirty inches in the mountains. Probably 20 inches in the mountains of Fukushima Prefecture running downhill. NO VIDEO from TEPCO on the conditions at the power plant.

      Good time to reflect on Typhoon Malakas, and its effects on the Sendai nuclear power plant on Kyushu, Japan. The eye sat on the power plant for hours and hours. NO VIDEO from the power plant.

      Anyone see any VIDEO from the power plant in Alamagorda County, Texas?

      Seriously doubt that any evidence contradicting claims of safety at nuclear plants will ever see much coverage.
