    'How the U.S. Is Recovering Oil from a Nuked Warship'
    [With nuke video]

    "The U.S. military is trying to recover the oil form a ship that's been underwater for 72 years. In an interesting twist, it's not even an American warship.

    The United States captured the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen as a war prize after the end of World War II. The Prinz Eugen capsized in 1946 after being nuked—twice—during the atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll. For decades, experts have feared that the radioactive ship's oil might leak into the Pacific. Now the Pentagon is trying to do something about it…"

      I struggle to see what they were trying to say there. I mean, I understand too much greed, exploitation, manufacturing, mining, etc causes problems.

      "Meanwhile, experts around the world are exploring alternative ways we can set up our economic systems, such as Doughnut Economics, Post Growth Economics, Prosperity without Growth and Steady State Economy – and Järvensivu and colleagues have asked all forward-thinking leaders around the world to start testing possible transitional strategies, such as a universal job guarantee.

      These suggestions are pretty daunting, but if we humans have proven anything with our time on Earth so far, it's that we can achieve incredible things when we work together."

      I mean, it ends with that, and I have to laugh at that, tbh. The economic system and universal job guarantee fixing the planet? Fuckoff.

      • slandermen slandermen

        Ironically, it seems the article is trying to suggest a form of accelerated industrialism and more involvement, since it talks about job guarantees and post-ww2 industry.

        Yeah, that wasn't a good thing, btw. Also, I remember some places that had job guarantees, their environment didn't improve.

    Let's say I gathered a lot of resources and assets, how would I then maximize inequality, disparity and ensure others cannot approach my riches?

    By imposing restrictions on what you can gain, with law and regulations, through governance. That would of course have a number of other direct and indirect effects too, such as less freedom and liberty, etc.

    Trump has had it out for wind power since at least 2012

    "Exactly six years ago Friday, in 2012, President Trump fired off a tweet about wind power, bald eagles, and the environment. Wind turbines, he said, are an “environmental and aesthetic disaster.”

    "The Audubon Society estimates that wind turbines kill somewhere between 140,000 to 328,000 birds every year in North America. That’s a lot of birds! As far as renewable energy options go, turbines do indeed pose the biggest threat to avian creatures. Fossil fuels, however, kill far more birds — including eagles. "

    "This tweet was just one of many times Trump went after wind power. Just a couple of weeks ago, the president blasted “windmills” for needing government subsidies at a fundraiser in Upstate, New York. “Who wants energy where you need a subsidy?” he asked, conveniently forgetting to mention his forthcoming plan to save the coal industry."

    Wall Street pay keeps rising.

    Including bonuses, the average salary in New York City's securities industry jumped by 13% to $422,500 in 2017, according to a report from New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

    That's the highest figure since 2008 and the third-highest on record, once adjusted for inflation.

    "Ten years after Lehman Brothers' collapse it is clear that Wall St. does not need to return to the days of excessive risk-taking to enjoy rising profits," DiNapoli said in a statement.

    EU migrant workers contribute £2,300 more per year to UK than average British citizen, study reveals

    'If the UK’s new relationship with Europe involves reduced migration, this analysis suggests the tax burden on others will have to rise'

    Migrants from the EU contribute £2,300 more to the exchequer each year in net terms than the average adult, the analysis for the government has found.

    And, over their lifetimes, they pay in £78,000 more than they take out in public services and benefits – while the average UK citizen’s net lifetime contribution is zero.

        It's even simpler, a lot of those EU migrants would be from countries with shitty conditions and economic situations.

  • slandermen slandermen

    I mean, in a rhetorical sense, if there is an entity or group or something that consistently panders for your support, to promote their ideals, to join them, to ask you to fight for their cause, etc. That's a form of insecurity right? That's a neediness, surely?

    Oh yeah, now considering that as the fundamentals of the appeals, would it not be ironic to consider that these people suggest "security", when so often, they have been found to be involved with quite the opposite, considering the state of their implementations, methodologies, their demand?

    Now, if I said, does that sound like your politicians, thinktanks, corporations and so on, would it be untrue?

    They constantly advertize, they regularly fail, they're often incompetent and complicit in the shit they use for agendas and they almost never provide any benefit, despite their promises, suggestions of benevolence and philanthropy.

    When the american military or a large corporation speaks of say, their environmental concerns, does it not ring hollow with a rich stench of hypocrisy?

    Why the need? Surely, when a corporation (not just, you can apply that idea to a number of conceptual entities) tries to sell shit, it's from the basis of insecurity. Insecurity is thus, the driving factor in modern society.

      Yes, well first of all, zika was not, and is not devastating. Most of the problems attributed to zika, surprisingly, related to agriculture. Then, the shit used against zika (shit sprayed in say, florida) caused the very symptoms, and worse, that zika was blamed for (according to those who promoted those chemicals, mosquito engineering, etc).

  • TREV TREV

    Duke Energy's Brunswick Nuclear Plant,is located about 30 miles south of Wilmington NC and under a declared state of emergency,the lowest required by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, after roads surrounding the 1,200-acre complex were impacted by flooding and downed trees.

    “None of the roads are passable,” NRC spokesman Joey Ledford told the News & Observer. “The plant is safe. The reactors are in hot stand-by mode 3 shutdown.”

    I was curious what "hot stand-by mode 3" meant. So I hunted around and this is part of what I found.

    The term "hot stand-by" refers to a redundant system that runs parallel to the Primary system. So I thought it did not make much sense.

    Here is the website URL http://www.nuclearelectricalengineer.com/nuclear-power-plant-modes-explained-here/

    Please read it for the rest of the story. There really is a lot going on concerning radioactive contamination in the world but there is so much silence.
    I am doing my little bit to shout through the silence.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      TREV, am not sure you technically can have such a thing as a "hot shutdown" mode. Confusing wording. Hot running mode generally means the fuel rods are at least partyly engaged. Maybe it means this (see gradual shutdown):

      https://www.nuclear-power.net/nuclear-power/reactor-physics/reactor-operation/reactor-shutdown/

      Residual system heat present, but probability of secondary criticality is removed. Technically a state of "sub-criticality."

      Maybe they're in a partial or gradual shutdown mode? (How is that possible if the site is not manned? Was it done prior to an evac operation?)

      Sounds like the reactor/reactors weren't scrammed.

      It sounds like they are referring to a gradual shutdown with high residual heat.

    A Brief Review—EPR Dosimetry and the Use of Animal Teeth as Dosimeters

    The technique of electron paramagnetic resonance dosimetry using tooth enamel was established in the late 1960s, and considerable research has been conducted to learn more about the benefits of using human teeth as dosimeters for the purpose of retrospective dose reconstruction. Comparatively few studies have been done which have investigated animal teeth for the same purpose. The potential exists for utilizing animal teeth as dosimeters to reconstruct doses received by a species, as well as by humans. Animals investigated in electron paramagnetic resonance studies included cows, rats, mice, dogs, pigs, rhesus monkeys, goats, reindeer, walruses, bison, polar foxes, moose, and polar bears. Much has been determined regarding the characteristics of animal teeth, and overall the use of animal teeth for electron paramagnetic resonance dosimetry appears to be a viable means of estimating external dose. Although much has been learned from animal studies, there remain unanswered questions related to electron paramagnetic resonance dosimetry and the use of animal teeth as electron paramagnetic resonance dosimeters. This article summarizes the findings of animal electron paramagnetic resonance studies and outlines what is still unknown.

    Experts say Trump’s EPA moving to loosen radiation limits

    The EPA is pursuing rule changes that experts say would weaken the way radiation exposure is regulated, turning to scientific outliers who argue that a bit of radiation damage is actually good for you — like a little bit of sunlight.

    The government’s current, decades-old guidance says that any exposure to harmful radiation is a cancer risk. And critics say the proposed change could lead to higher levels of exposure for workers at nuclear installations and oil and gas drilling sites, medical workers doing X-rays and CT scans, people living next to Superfund sites and any members of the public who one day might find themselves exposed to a radiation release.

    Radioactivity harms us and no dose is “safe”

    A “small” dose can do immense damage; our new handbook explains how and why

    Radioactive releases occur all along the uranium fuel chain, beginning with uranium mining and culminating in radioactive waste “management.”

    All of these releases — whether large or small (because there is no “safe” dose) — impact human health with varying degrees of severity. And yet most of the time, these impacts are poorly understood, hushed up, or even dismissed. When discoveries are made — such as increased rates of leukemia in populations living near nuclear power or reprocessing plants — there is an immediate effort by industry, often supported by governments, to undermine, challenge or negate such findings.

    The fact remains, however, that both the immediate and long-term damage done to human health — which can last for generations — is the single, most compelling reason not to continue with the use of nuclear power and the extractive, polluting industries that must support it.

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      The reason it sounds like the authors are having a difficult time explaining the danger of low dose radiation, and giving any quantification to it, is probably due to the fact that they dont know.

      But theres no shame it that. The fact is that most mainstream scientists dont know, and in fact get it wrong.

      For my taste, they should have cited Bandzhevsky and a few others to help quantify it.

      People really struggle with the banana dose equivalent. None of their answers help. The scientists would shoot down the argument with dose.

      And heres where non linear effects come in. If they could come to grips with the idea that natural background radiation has been a part of biology since the beginning, and as such may be an integral part of biological function, then they could really start to blame manmade radiation with its huge specific radioactivity and whatever else.

      People cant make that leap. But the problem never goes away; if ALL radiation dose is bad then a tiny bit, a fraction of background can only do a tiny bit; a fraction of the damage of background. Thats where pro and anti nukers stand right now

    "Radioactivity harms us and no dose is “safe”"

    CS and Chris Busby would like to have a word with you about that.

    • slandermen slandermen

      Wait, maybe not CS so much, but the Busby graph clearly indicates in a fairly general sense that more radiation (roughly equivalent to background levels) is bad for you but more radiation (unspecified) is good (relatively), but also that no radiation is best.

      This is good shit.

    Marco Kaltofen, a nuclear forensics expert and a professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, said he collected samples from communities outside three lab sites across the nation and found a wide variation of particle sizes. He said they could deliver lifelong doses that exceed allowable federal standards if inhaled.

    "If you inhale two particles, you will exceed your lifetime dose under occupational standards, and there is a low probability of detecting it," he said.

    The second study by Kaltofen, completed in August, reported that fairly high radioactivity levels were found in 30 samples from the communities around the Hanford nuclear site, near Richland, Wash. The samples found contamination on personal vehicles driven inside the Hanford site that would leave mechanics exposed if they worked around the vehicles, the report said.

    Kaltofen also reviewed an internal study in March by an Energy Department contractor, Washington River Protection Solutions, that found a calculated potential dose of 95 millirem for workers, roughly 10 times higher than the federal Environmental Protection Agency standard.

      wow, a significant post there Jebus. Statistics dont convey the suffering, but here at ENEnews we usually use percentage because it sounds bigger.

      2,900% increase in thyroid cancer. 397% increase in heart attack

      It wasnt immediate, Ill give them that

        The numbers must be seen and evaluated laterally as the previous numbers included previous radiation contamination too..so I am thinking this is continued bioaccumulation.. with spike impacts seen per event.

        Many graphs show similar spikes after Chernobyl and the overall rate of cancers per 100K continued to tick upwards in Russia as they then did worldwide. 1945 was the Radiation Contamination Bioaccumulation start date for the entire world.

        When a seasoned educated medical professional tells me that "cancer rates" are higher now because of population increases..I have to scratch my head very hard..often it bleeds. The statement is false..and is an uneducated response.

        If the rate of cancer was 30 per 100K say in 1940.. and it is now 350 per 100K. The population numbers do not affect the "rate numbers" per 100K.

        30 per 100K should have remained the same per 100K since 1940..if Nuclear bioaccumulation was not to blame.

        Tick, Tock, Up!

    How Long Does it Take to Recover from a Nuclear Accident?

    "What happens in the aftermath of a nuclear disaster? To learn, we can look at history, specifically the example of the Chernobyl disaster."

    Things are going well out there for Japan and especially since 1945. What happened in 1945?

    All I could find was this..could this be the cause?
