    Did you know:

    Nuclear reactors can manufacture precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, osmium, iridium, ruthenium, rhodium, and paladium.

    It's called nuclear transmutation or synthesis.

    So…. how do you know if you're buying natural gold or silver versus manufactured gold or silver?

    I learned about nuclear transmutation on RacChick's radio show of 3/20.

    You can listen to the archived show here:

      • Mack Mack

        Wouldn't the creating of precious metals also make them less valuable because of the supply-and-demand economic model?

        • Sickputer

          Yes. I knew a prominent jeweler 40 years ago near Houston. He radium treated diamonds with a laser to remove carbon occlusions. His scheme backfired because the diamonds glowed under blacklights and there were lots of nightclubs using blacklights. Nobody wanted irradiated diamonds.

    Good morning enenewsers. Something for the morning:
    "New Plutonium Research Facility at Los Alamos May Not Meet All Mission Needs"

    Report by the Government Accountability Office says:

    "The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has decided to construct a multibillion dollar Chemistry and Metallurgy Research Replacement Nuclear Facility (CMRR) to modernize the laboratory’s capabilities to analyze and store plutonium. (…)

    The [recent] Chemistry and Metallurgy Research nuclear facility at Los Alamos conducts plutonium-related research that is crucial to effectively maintain the nuclear weapons stockpile. However, the facility is nearly 60 years old, and its aging infrastructure poses safety hazards. In addition, the facility is situated on a seismic fault line, raising concerns about the effect of earthquakes on the safety and security of plutonium used for research or stored at the facility. (…)

    "(…) the United States has agreed to reduce the size of its strategic nuclear weapons stockpile from a maximum of 2,200 to 1,550 weapons, with the remaining weapons in the stockpile continuing to be an essential element of U.S. defense strategy."

    "The estimated cost to construct the CMRR, according to estimates prepared in April 2010, is nearly six times higher than the project’s initial cost estimate that was prepared in 2005. The project’s estimated completion date has also been delayed by at least 8 to 12 years."

    Interesting stuff.

    • Sickputer

      The loss of willing buyers for MOX fuel means they aren't going to have a commercial burn-up option for all that military grade plutonium. So niw the taxpayers will continue to fund these broken and super toxic Dr. Frankenstein legacies. The monsters have been spawned and they can't be killed. So now the trick is building an escape-proof cage for the next million years. Lots of luck with that one.

  • Opposition grows on Okinawa to burning debris from quake

    CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Radiation fears are raising public opposition to Okinawa’s plan to help burn tsunami and earthquake debris from disaster zones in northeastern Japan.

    Despite government assurances, hundreds of residents — including some in the U.S. military community — signed a petition to stop Japan from shipping the debris here, claiming that disposing of the waste could spread radiation and diseases across the island.

    The Tohoku region has been struggling with about 25 million tons of debris left after massive tsunamis ground up coastal communities in March 2011 and without help from other areas of Japan, it could take nearly 20 years for some disaster-stricken areas to complete the cleanup, according to the …

    Bill Gates: Nuclear energy like a fantastic vaccine

    In the 1950s, “too cheap to meter” was the tag line for then-nascent atomic energy. That promise, which Bill Gates now calls a “fantastic vaccine,” has thus far been more of an intractable virus.

    Last week Mr. Gates revived the “nuclear is cheap” message to promote his TerraPower nuke startup venture. He also came off decidedly pessimistic about the world’s prospects for combating climate change.

    The nuclear industry has long touted “cheap” alongside “clean” in its bid against renewable energy to supply electricity to a power-hungry world. It has also argued loudly against subsidies for renewables, and claimed that nuclear is the only way to slow global warming.

    Gates has joined that chorus, stating that he’s skeptical that the world can dramatically cut greenhouse-gas emissions in less than 75 years, and suggesting that wind and solar subsidies should be conditional upon commercializing energy storage technologies first.

    To make the “cheap and clean” argument, you have to ignore some significant externalities. A big problem with “cheap” nuclear power has been the cost — construction budget overruns, bailouts, storing spent rods, site clean-up, and human lives. The caveat with “clean” (low-carbon) nuclear power is its multigenerational legacy of radioactive waste…

    • Sickputer

      The billionaire Bill Gates is seriously deluded. He touches his progeny with the Midas touch of death. Utter madness for a person who could be such a global advocate to help save the planet. He should donate his $150 million house as a dump site for the nuclear waste he promotes. I hope he wakes up someday. It might take his children dying of cancer before he gets a clue.

    • Billy is a dip-ch!t. I am not a violent person, but a smile does cross my face when I ponder the thought of punching Mr. Gates directly in the nose and watching him cry.

      He stole most of the ideas that made him rich and his stupid OS has cost me and many others untold hours of frustration. If we could all send him an invoice for the hours his product has cost us he would not be so rich. Actually, I think he would owe us all.

    "Gov't report: DC nuke blast wouldn't destroy city"

    "… a U.S. government study analyzed the likely effects from terrorists setting off a 10-kiloton nuclear device a few blocks north of the White House. It predicted terrible devastation for roughly one-half mile in every direction, with buildings reduced to rubble the way that World War II bombing raids destroyed parts of Berlin. But outside that blast zone, the study concluded, even such a nuclear explosion would be pretty survivable….

    … The little-noticed, 120-page study by the Federal Emergency Management Agency was hardly a summer blockbuster. The study, "Key Response Planning Factors for the Aftermath of Nuclear Terrorism," was produced in November by the Homeland Security Department and the National Nuclear Security Administration….

    … The biggest difference between the disaster that the government studied and the nightmares of incoming ICBMs from the former Soviet Union is the size of the explosion. Cold War-era fears imagined massive hydrogen bombs detonated in the sky, not a smaller device — one that might fit inside a parked van — exploding on the street…."

    Hi all!
    I would like to introduce to you a publication veteran
    nuclear affairs. CIAR (Collective Research on
    radioactive weapons) and AMC (Association of complementary medicines).
    On this website you can consult WEAPONS AGAINST WARS bulletins in English and Castilian (Spanish). These bulletins are being published since 2003.
    I think it will gain interesting information on radioactive weapons, radioactive contamination and health issues and criticisms of drugs among others.
    For Spanish-speaking people in the U.S. I think it will also be a discovery and an important way of illustration. This site does not sell anything, not commercial.
    Herewith the latest video of the founder Dr. A. Embid, talked about pollution
    radiation and cancer. Also another link to an external website with reviews and testimonials of victims. I firmly believe that what is said in this video is one of the greatest apologies about the truth about nuclear've ever seen. It is unfortunate that this not yet translated. But worth it if you have
    a friend who speaks Spanish, to translate it.
    A hug to everyone.

  • Hospitals in disaster-hit areas seek trainee doctors

    SENDAI–Hospitals in disaster-hit regions are undertaking various measures to ensure enough trainee doctors take their residencies next year.

    The measures include appealing to their sense of duty to serve in the devastated areas, releasing radiation measurements, raising salaries and offering free accommodation.

    The number of resident doctors seeking professional training at hospitals in the region this spring dropped by 20 percent in Fukushima Prefecture and by 10 percent in Miyagi Prefecture compared with the previous year. This is pressuring hospitals to make greater efforts to attract trainee doctors graduating from medical school next year.

    The Tohoku Regional Bureau of Health and Welfare held a joint briefing session with 84 medical institutions in Sendai on March 20. The session was attended by 86 medical school students.

    This spring, there will be no trainee doctors going to Iwaki Kyoritsu Hospital, a municipal hospital in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, near the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

    NIIGATA–Niigata Gov. Hirohiko Izumida on Monday again expressed fears about the safety of the No. 6 reactor at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant, which some local people want restarted as soon as possible to keep the local economy alive.

    Speaking at a press conference following the shutdown of the reactor at around midnight Sunday, Izumida called on Tokyo Electric Power Co. to manage the nuclear power plant carefully.

  • Hardships loom with TEPCO reactor shutdown

    Tadaaki Inoue and Tomofumi Degawa / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff Writers

    With Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s last nuclear reactor suspended, companies and households face dual hardships–possible prolonged power shortages and a rise in electricity charges to cover increased fuel costs at thermal power plants–unless nuclear reactors are reactivated after routine safety checks.

    TEPCO has explained that it will be able to supply about 57 million kilowatts of electricity this summer, which is the same level as last year, even without running nuclear reactors. Beneath the surface, however, the company is walking a tightrope.

    On the supply side, the number of compact power generators TEPCO has installed …

    Possible nuclear blast in Washington? "It's not the end of the world" says Homeland Security

    "(..)The government study predicted 323,000 injuries, with more than 45,000 dead. A 10-kiloton nuclear explosion would be roughly 5,000 times more powerful than the truck bomb that destroyed the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995.

    The flash from the explosion would be seen for hundreds of miles, but the mushroom cloud — up to five miles tall — would only keep its shape for a few minutes. The flash would be so bright it could temporarily blind people up to 12 miles away, including drivers on Washington’s Beltway. At least four area hospitals would be heavily damaged or couldn’t function, and four others would experience dangerous radiation fallout. The government said it expects to send warnings afterward by television, radio, email, text message and social media services like Twitter and Facebook."

    Bulgaria has abandoned plans to build a new nuclear power station at Belene, close to the Romanian border.

    The country's deputy finance minister says the cabinet wants to build a gas-powered plant on the site instead.

    A Russian-built reactor, which had been ordered for the facility, could now be installed at an existing nuclear plant at Kozloduy.

    Environmentalists had opposed the plant, which had first been proposed when Bulgaria was under communist rule.

    Hi everyone ! If anyone can help me I would be very grateful.The wealth of information on this site is amazing. For almost a year I have been trying to convince a friend who lives near Seattle that the radiation coming from Japan is real and that it will cause and has caused illnesses and deaths. Could anyone give me links to what they consider to be the best documentation or a video on the health consequences of the levels of radiation that were seen in Hawaii and on the Pacific coast? My friend is going to take whatever I send him to his primary care physician and to an immunologist who teaches in a medical school.This could reach a few people , if I have solid information.
    Thank-you !

    • If you click on my 'name' it will take you to my youtube channel. There I have compiled lists of interviews and documentaries from my research. Over the last year I did my best to put into play lists credible, easy to understand, videos.

      Good luck with trying to convince someone to listen. Especially those who are 'experts' at what they do. They may scoff at the fact that some information comes from youtube. If it does not come from what they consider a major news source they may not believe you. That's your first hurdle.

      Secondly, there are 2 groups. Such as… One group where there are those who just accept the claims of so called 'experts' that nobody died at Three Mile Island and then there are those who simply know better.

      Example: The experts claim that with the TMI accident people only received a dose equal to an x-ray. Assuming that to be true, which actually we now know it was much higher, then why do we no longer x-ray pregnant women? The reason is because in 1970 it was determined that a single x-ray could damage an unborn fetus. Primarily childhood leukemia which means death. That's why. So, how many pregnant women were around Harrisburg, PA that day? You get the picture. (side note: comparing an x-ray to ingesting or inhaling a radioactive particle are two completely different things. We here at enenews know that fact now.)

      You will deal with a term we call "deniable credibility". It's difficult, at best, to prove the affects of radiation because you cannot see it. The many illnesses and mutations which can be caused by it may also occur without it. So how do we 'really' know? There are many pieces to this puzzle and it requires TIME to actually start putting it together before the picture can begin to become clear.

      It has been said… "That for Truth to exist it takes two people, one to speak it and one to hear it."
