    CGN Europe Energy Co, a subsidiary of China's State-owned nuclear power firm China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN), has acquired a 75 percent stake in a huge windmill project in Sweden, according to a statement from CGN on Tuesday night.

    CGN Europe signed an agreement with Australian energy company Macquarie Group and US-based General Electric Co to purchase the majority stake in Sweden's North Pole wind power project.

    The CGN statement did not disclose further details about the stake transfers, the amount of money involved or future plans for the project, which is still under construction.

    The North Pole project is expected to have 179 wind turbines that will deliver 650 megawatts of power, and is said to be the largest single-site onshore wind installation in Europe. It could provide power for 400,000 families.

      Good to know about artemesia, HHD.
      Ive got lots of artemesia, its a chaparal shrub.
      Its beautiful & aromatic. Artemesia californica.
      Indians used it for throat & respiratory probs.
      It works, nice taste. Its also a killer insect repellent.
      And from the way it behaves when I burn a pile of it, I'll bet it could be distilled to run vehicles.
      Think I'll be drinking more artemesia.
      I'd seen hints of the artemesia/cancer link elsewhere.
      All cancers…and also seems to be effective for malaria.

    Trump Kills Science, Nature Strikes Back

    The Trump administration’s every move is marked with a strange creepiness as well as confusing messages that can only mean: They don’t get it. Their nefarious “destroy science” mentality promotes insane irreversible carbon emissions in good ole America, ultimately threatening the abilities of farmers to cope with ruinous global heat.

    As scientists duck for cover from mean-spirited Orange Trumpeters, nature strikes back, emitting 220M tons of carbon from melting permafrost in Alaska. In response, Trumpeters, fighting back, have already taken the first steps towards drilling Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, thus setting the stage for oil and gas leases on 19-million-acres of “public land.” All of America owns it.

    Alaskan permafrost is melting so fast that it has already hit a “tipping point,” meaning it emits carbon into the atmosphere in competition with human-caused carbon, hands-free, no more anthropogenic assistance required, self-perpetuating, a prelude to Runaway Global Warming (“RGW”), a major, very serious threat to life, especially as Trumpeters focus on making America More Drillable than ever before, feeding more, and more, and more force into gigantic arcs of methane CH4, a molecule that is 100xs more powerful at entrapping heat in the atmosphere than is CO2 during its initial stages.

        As the Senate considers whether to confirm CIA Director Mike Pompeo as President Trump’s secretary of state, new information is coming to light about his sparse record on foreign affairs, raising concerns about Pompeo’s ability to serve as America’s top diplomat. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee was set to vote on Pompeo’s confirmation Monday night. Pompeo has come under fire for remarks about Muslims. Now, disclosure documents reviewed by TYT also show that Pompeo once met with an Israeli official who was later honored by a group so extreme it was labeled a hate group…

    What’s Killing the Babies of Vernal, Utah?

    A midwife comes under attack after she starts asking questions about dead babies in a Utah fracking town.

    Every night, Donna Young goes to bed with her pistol, a .45 Taurus Judge with laser attachment. Last fall, she says, someone stole onto her ranch to poison her livestock, or tried to; happily, her son found the d-CON wrapper and dumped all the feed from the troughs.

    A fracking boomtown, a spike in stillborn deaths and a

      Interesting/discouraging stuff down at the bottom of the page.

      "if we are going to be serious about carbon emissions, we have to have a much larger nuclear component in our electric production"

      "create cleaner, cheaper sources of energy".

      A 2013 letter from atmospheric scientist Ken Caldeira, professor of meteorology Kerry Emanuel, and climate scientists Tom Wigley and James Hansen encouraged environmental groups to support nuclear power reactors as a way to address environmental concerns such as climate change and pollution. HEAL Utah dismissed the letter, stating the scientists should be trying to persuade "utility executives and the president of the United States".

      Blue Castle Holdings (BCH) is the company that owns the Blue Castle project. It was cofounded in 2006 by Aaron Tilton. Other executives include Thomas Retson (formerly of GE Nuclear Energy), Nils Diaz (formerly head of the U.S.Nuclear Regulatory Commission), Robert Graber, and Reed Searle.

      Everyone see how clear the path forward is? Hmmm

        “The amount of water needed for safety, to assure safety, is tiny,” said Nick Zervos, a supervisor of thermal engineering for The Shaw Group who spoke at a forum in favor of Blue Castle and called it “inconceivable” that the Green River would be too low to provide cooling water. “There would never be a safety issue due to a lack of water.”

        This article months after Fukushima suffers catastrophic failure.
        It was “inconceivable”.

    Sierra Club, Utah

    There are 23 plants in the US that utilize the same containment system as Fukushima.

    Reactors require huge amounts of water to safely operate. Any interruption in the supply of water to the reactors could result in a catastrophic accident.

    Reactors are expensive. At a minimum of $10 billion and seven years to build, plants require their entire life span in order to pay back investors.

          Trump done it, in 18 months, he has changed everything.

          "And who is the 'electricity' for?"
          California – for the profit that makes it feasible. Remove that export, and it is questionable, the coal/gas 'Climate Change' loses meaning, etc. etc. Arizona will reap some benefit you can be sure.
          Gov. Moonbeam claimed Co2 down in Cali, did not claim it was up in those supplying Cali.

          Funny, lake Mead and Powell continue to lose level. No one seems to get it.

          If people continue to concentrate west of the Rockies, divert natural processes, it will change much more than just the climate.
          Exactly like it is doing.

            I get it…

            Time to study mercury and benzene and the so called particulate soot pollution (particulate pollution) that supposedly falls out quickly (onto the ground and your food) that means noting to the climate scientists that scream C02 instead of POISONS RAINING DOWN ON US!!!!

            Oh and we are in a orbit around the sun right now that will lower water levels and icebergs too.

            Let's worry about a basically harmless gas in the upper atmosphere (C02) instead of what's falling on us…

            Think C02 has anything to do with it?

            Makes as much sense as a pill to make you alert followed by a pill to calm you down so you don't "freak out" and can actually sleep.

            So you go to a person you don't know and trust him (or her) with your life?

            Recon there is any real truth in any of that?

            Does it make any sense to do it? The doctor said it so I believe?

            The Mormon Church runs Utah.

            Historically, the Mormons wanted to be left alone. Disengaged from formal laws & currency, they sought independence. That evolved into being driven from the East. Everything they accomplished was confiscated.

    NRC update after this commercial interruption: https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2018/7/11/17555644/nuclear-power-energy-climate-decarbonization-renewables To assure that we have safe and affordable advanced reactor designs that can be deployed at scale by midcentury, the United States will need to dramatically increase and refocus the budget of the DOE’s NE toward advanced reactor development. Perceptive and ruthlessly pragmatic program officers will need to be recruited: ones with a sense of the mission’s urgency. The government would have to sustain that higher level of support in the face of constant short-term political pressures and, undoubtedly, organized opposition from advocates of other generating sources. Part of that increased budget would have to be dedicated to building new infrastructure, such as fast-flux test facilities and other system test beds. Even with a higher budget, surge funding may be needed in some years to support demonstration reactor development and program leadership would eventually have to focus on moving two or three systematically chosen designs to the point of commercialization

    "…Once again, we do not see an instrument which is immune to the business cycle. It does not matter if we are dealing with coins, paper money, or electronic entries. Everything will still be subject to the business cycle. There will NEVER be any such exception.

It cannot be permanently fixed.

    Therefore, while our computer forecasts that China will emerge as the Financial Capital of the World after 2032, those who hate the dollar and keep calling for its demise fail to understand that the more critical element that will make the China yuan a major global currency is when the “confidence” level rises among big capital and they feel “comfortable” parking their money in Chinese bonds, assets, etc. China is moving in that direction slowly. They will eventually allow their currency to be freely traded and currency controls will vanish. As that dawns, then we will see the yuan rise in global respect.

    "The Power"

    President Donald Trump has said that he wants to expand the United States’ nuclear arsenal, breaking with decades of bipartisan policies aimed at reducing the global nuclear threat.

    He has also spoken fatalistically, if semi-coherently, about nuclear weapons. “For me, nuclear is just the power, the devastation is very important to me,” he said during a Republican debate in 2016.

    Shortly after Trump took office, the keepers of the Doomsday Clock set it at two minutes to midnight—right where it was put in 1952 after the development of the hydrogen bomb.

    *IN SUTU URANIUM LEACH MINING

    In situ leach mining (ISL) is a method of Uranium mining where hundreds of wells are drilled in a “grid pattern” over an ore body that is located in a GROUNDWATER AQUIFER.

    IF THERE IS A GOD..NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO INTERVENE

    In 2016, 48% of world uranium mined was from ISL.

    The mining solution is injected into the aquifer under pressure in order to leach the uranium out of the ground. The leach solution strips the uranium out of the aquifer. Along with radioactive uranium, arsenic, selenium, radium and lead are also extracted.

    Trump's SCOTUS nominee: 'I'd put the final nail in' Congress's power to investigate the president

    He was asked what case he would overturn if he could, and at first played it cagey, because of course he knew he was on a number of short lists for the Supreme Court should a Republican win the White House. If you're on that list, you don't say controversial stuff out loud. But he just couldn't resist on this one.

    "Actually, I'm going to say one. Morrison v. Olson. It's been effectively overruled, but I would put the final nail in," according to a video of the event

    What's Morrison v. Olson? It was a Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of provisions creating an independent counsel under the 1978 Ethics in Government Act. The independent counsel law expired in 1999 and was replaced by the somewhat weaker Justice Department's special counsel regulation. That's what Robert Mueller is now operating under. But Kavanaugh wants to put the "final nail" in it, ending any possibility of Congress's power to investigate the president. Which is kind of interesting, since Kavanaugh was on Ken Starr's team that hounded then-President Bill Clinton with a broad array of conspiracy theories. Since then, Kavanaugh has changed his tune, because now he believes a president should be beyond Congress's reach.

    Nearly Two Thirds of American Schools Have No Idea If There Is Lead in Their Water
    In children, exposure can cause a host of long term physical and psychological problems.

    Most American schools either haven’t tested their water for lead in the last year or don’t know whether they have. Of the schools that have performed the test, more than a third have report elevated levels. Those are the main findings of a report, based on a survey conducted in 2017, published by the Government Accountability Office on Wednesday.

    The 2014 water crisis in Flint, Michigan, which exposed as many as 12,000 children to dangerous levels of lead, renewed a national conversation on the dangers of the pervasive problem of lead in the water supply. In children, lead exposure can cause a host of long term physical and psychological problems, including learning disabilities, neurological effects, kidney disease, and aggressive behavior.

    “No child should be put at risk for toxic lead exposure simply by drinking water at school,” wrote the House and Senate Democrats, who had requested the report, in a joint statement after its release. “This report should serve as a wake-up call to the Trump Administration that it must take immediate action to address lead in drinking water.”

      Racism is just the color of someone's skin, just in case any of you had forgotten or choose to deny it.

      ok, Ill bite. Racism is deeply ingrained cultural differences associated with different geographical areas and the skin color, or simple tribal name (for example jewish) of the region. Also, probably to a lesser degree, its the actual genetic differences. This is similar to differences in dog breeds.

      For example, the Himalayan Shirpas have a unique gene inherited from the Denesovian-man that allows them to create more haemoglobin in low oxygen conditions. Other races dont have it. Indeed Certain racial groups in East Asia/Indonesia owe upto 4-6% of their DNA to the Denisovan.

      So…this is a mistaken meme right away. The industrial revolution has eliminated jobs. Jobs that we dont want. The relevant quote is this;

      "What matters basically is this: social change requires serious, organized opposition to the status quo."

      The status quo is a capitalist, elite and small group that is insulated from the reality of nature and civilization at large. Thus some form of anarchy is required to end their monopoly of wealth and power. The problem is so intricately embedded in the system of civilization, that only a major ideological, functional change will bring us to a sustainable future

    Israel lobby seeks to erase occupation from Virginia schoolbooks

    Human rights activists in Virginia are fighting to protect the quality and accuracy of schoolbooks as Israel advocacy organizations seek substantial changes to the texts.

    The suggested changes would distort the way Israeli history is depicted, deliberately whitewashing its military occupation and ongoing policies of land theft, apartheid and expulsion of Palestinians.

    These changes have been proposed to the Virginia Department of Education by the California-based Institute for Curriculum Services – a “strategic initiative” of the Jewish Community Relations Council, an organization with an active Israel lobby.

    ICS director Aliza Craimer Elias recently boasted in a video interview that her firm works “behind the scenes” with textbook publishers to edit entries about Jews, Judaism and Israel and to train classroom educators with ICS curricula.

    Elias said that many of the major textbook publishers “often come to us to work with them on manuscripts and development,” adding that about 85 percent of their proposed edits end up getting accepted.

    While some of their suggested edits address issues of Holocaust denial and offensive stereotypes of Jews and Judaism in biblical references, others address the way Israel’s establishment has been explained, as well as Israel’s current policies of discrimination, occupation and land theft.

    IEA warns of 'worrying trend' as global investment in renewables falls

    Fossil fuels increased share of energy supply investment last year – the first time since 2014

    The world’s energy watchdog has sounded the alarm over a “worrying” pause in the shift to clean energy after global investment in renewables fell 7% to $318bn (£240bn) last year.

    The International Energy Agency said the decline is set to continue into 2018, threatening energy security, climate change and air pollution goals.

    Fossil fuels increased their share of energy supply investment for the first time since 2014, to $790bn, and will play a significant role for years on current trends, the IEA said.

    Investment in coal power dropped sharply but was offset by an uptick in oil and gas spending, the World Energy Investment report found.

    Asthma deaths rise 25% amid growing air pollution crisis

    Doctors urge ministers to act as 1,320 killed by asthma in England and Wales last year

    A record number of people are dying of asthma, and experts have warned growing air pollution and a lack of basic care could be to blame.

    In England and Wales 1,320 people died of asthma last year, a sharp rise of more than 25% over a decade, according to data from the Office for National Statistics.

    The findings come amid growing concern about the air pollution crisis in the UK and mounting evidence of its impact on people’s health – particularly children and the elderly.

    Earlier this month a medical expert said the hospital admissions of a nine-year-old girl who died during an asthma attack showed a “striking association” with spikes in illegal levels of air pollution around her home in London.

    Last week an A&E doctor wrote in the Guardian about how her ward in London was overwhelmed by terrified children struggling to breathe because of dangerous levels of pollution. A separate report revealed that illegal levels of air pollution were driving up hospital admissions and GP visits.

                • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                  obe, the question is one of proportion. If christmas represents one percent of the pollution than its not a particularly strong representation of the problem and is not a place to start remedial action.

                  People had home, food, clothes, celebration, gifts and christmas before the industrial revolution. Now there is a feeling that the public is far better off than those old days. But this is not true. People are not THAT much better off and in some ways much worse off. The richness of quality, of handmade carefully crafted goods is gone. Sure we have the miracle of electronics and refined manufactured things like i-pads. But if you look at it as a percentage, a proportion of your labor, the public barely affords gifts. About 1 or 2% of their income. This reflects the polluting proportion also. People were slaves then and slaves now, with maximum wealth extracted from them. Without the extraordinary efficiency of automation, everyone would look like medieval paupers.

                  The main polluters come from the stuff we have always historically struggled with; keeping warm, going distances, growing food.

                  So if you solve even a small fraction of the heating problem, you have conquered many times the christmas problem.

    A 90 million gallon nuclear tragedy

    The uranium tailings spill at Church Rock, NM was the largest single release of radioactive contamination in US history

    Just 14 weeks after the Three Mile Island reactor accident, and 34 years to the day after the Trinity atomic test, the small community of Church Rock, New Mexico became the scene of another nuclear tragedy.

    Ninety million gallons of liquid radioactive waste, and eleven hundred tons of solid mill wastes, burst through a broken dam wall at the Church Rock uranium mill facility, creating a flood of deadly effluents that permanently contaminated the Puerco River.

    Why is the Church Rock spill – that washed into gullies, contaminated fields and the animals that grazed there, and made drinking water deadly – so anonymous in the annals of our nuclear history? Perhaps the answer lies in where it took place and who it affected.

    Church Rock was a small farming community of Native Americans, mainly Navajo, eking out a subsistence living off the arid Southwestern land. Nearby, several hundred million gallons of liquid uranium mill tailings were sitting in a pond waiting for evaporation to leave behind solid tailings for storage. On the morning of July 16, 1979, part of the dam wall collapsed, releasing a roaring flood of radioactive water and sludge.

    I clicked on a you tube video tonight about the "it's time" white house protests and an NK grey and ominous looking propaganda ad flashed up first saying "it's time" to take the officialy sponsored fake news poll…

    I laughed, watched the video, and laughed again…

    'Apple iCloud data in China now stored by state-owned company'

    "…Previously, in order to keep doing business in China, Apple had to store it’s iCloud data for Chinese users on servers within the country. Apple made the move and signed a deal with Guizhou-Cloud Big Data in February in order to comply with Chinese law that made such a decision a requirement. That month, Apple issued a statement:

    "China recently enacted laws requiring that cloud services offered to their citizens be operated by Chinese companies and that Chinese customers' data be stored in the country. While we advocated against iCloud being subject to these laws, we were ultimately unsuccessful. Our choice was to offer iCloud under the new laws or discontinue offering the service. We elected to continue offering iCloud as we felt that discontinuing the service would result in a bad user experience and less data security and privacy for our Chinese customers."

    Furthermore, Apple tried to calm fears by pointing out that while the data is stored with a China-based company, the company still controlled the encryption keys to each account. They reiterated that no special deal was made…"

    You would think a guy with all the money he would ever need and a programmer to boot would have a decent spell checker.

    'Is This the World’s Largest Robot?'

    "…The high cost of socialism is driving the field of robotics. The higher the costs of pensions and their lack of feasibility when central banks play with interest rates pretending to be managing the economy has driven the technology into the hands of automation. Governments are in a state of denial and they will continue to raise taxes to try to cover their costs. They fail to look at this crisis straight in the eyes. There is no hope of maintaining socialism and more than there was communism."

      for my taste this is just bullshit

      "…The high cost of socialism is driving the field of robotics. The higher the costs of pensions and their lack of feasibility when central banks play with interest rates pretending to be managing the economy has driven the technology into the hands of automation."

      Armstrong looks like a shyster , talks like a shyster, was jailed for being a shyster (not that that means much) and so therefor I conclude hes a shyster. Armstrong is working you

    Armstrong constantly reviews the basics.

    There is no free lunch when redistributing the wealth. Eventually someone has to pay for socialist agendas be it Social Security, medicare, unemployment insurance, school lunches, grants, incentives aka subsidies, whatever, they are all underfunded which leads to debt. That includes government and its employees which produce nothing but we pay for it.

    Other than that and economic outlooks, Armstrong is a great alternative news source.

      Someone is working in a framework that was created by others..the slave masters. Is armstrong always going to agree with slave masters? With robotics no one needs to work..it is simple.. tax the robot and then give that tax money to the humans… if you need a stupid monetary system to cling too.

      9 people own more than 3.5 billion humans..something stinks! Pure bullshit..says he.

      The people pay for everything, including the lives of the stock traders, money lenders and government officials. The cash is redistributed from the masses to the rich. You frame it the other way which is not correct.

      The debt carries a huge usury payment. The lenders of course love this and would not have it any other way. You make money the same way essentially. Would you cry about ridding the country of return on investments of capital?

      Armstrong has one objective; extracting wealth through stock 'investment'. Can he lend money to himself and then reap great wealth by returning it to himself with interest? Of course not…the wealth must come from others who end up with less. This makes Armstrongs entire modus operandi one of virtual leaching. I know there is a great normalcy bias. Enough to close peoples minds to obvious truth. I wouldnt trust Armstrongs version of his history and importance anymore than a used car salesman.

        uh…the people pay heavily for these things every pay check. You call it socialism to have people put money away for old age and illness into that system? The problem with it is the skimmers. Everyone wants a piece of that big box of golden treasure.

  • Confronted With Evidence of Russian Hacking, Trump Reverts to Conspiracy
    July 16, 2018

    “Last week, the American public saw for the first time detailed, specific evidence that President Vladimir V. Putin’s military commanders in Russia were engaged in a day-to-day, highly sophisticated effort to manipulate the 2016 election.

    “But on Monday, standing next to Mr. Putin, President Trump not only avoided all mention of the Justice Department’s indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers, but he questioned the very conclusion that Russia was behind the hacking.
    “Instead, Mr. Trump raised a series of largely irrelevant conspiracy theories — none of which were directly related to the evidence of Russian hacking activity….”
