Part 3 (Part 2 at end of post):

8:15 in

  • Turkey Point reactors in Miami, FL released an enormous amount of radioactivity
  • In some parts of Dade County we have seen teeth that are 10-20 times than minimum level we can detect
  • Strontium-90 should be less than 0.5 picocuries per gram of calcium — it should be less than 0.5 — and we find levels as high as 15, 16, or 17

“Strontium-90 is considered a cancer-causing substance because it damages the genetic material (DNA) in cells.” -Delaware Health and Social Services

    End Nuclear Power – White House Petition – Please Sign!

    https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/%21/petition/end-use-nuclear-energy-united-states/H0Pd79B1?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl

    Dear friends,

    I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a
    new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
    name to mine? If this petition gets 5,000 signatures by October 30, 2011,
    the White House will review it and respond!

    We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
    Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
    enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

    You can view and sign the petition here:

    http://wh.gov/4HA

    If you have any trouble with the short url, please try this:

    https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/%21/petition/end-use-nuclear-energy-united-states/H0Pd79B1?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl

    Here’s some more information about this petition:

    End the use of nuclear energy in the United States.

    The best available science has taught us that radioactive substances are
    extremely hazardous to human health. Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, the
    ongoing crisis in Fukushima, as well as recent U.S. nuclear accidents can
    leave no doubt — nuclear energy is neither safe nor clean. Please end the
    use of nuclear energy, and use the funds currently invested in advancing
    nuclear power to support safer alternatives, such as wind and solar.

      The response you will get from the Obama WH will be a form letter. It will read something like,

      “after careful consideration of your petition and ALL the facts we find no credible reason to be concerned about nuclear power”

      Thank you for voting for Change You Can Count On…

        And what kind of a response will I get by simply posting my opinion here, Darth?

        With all due respect, why do you feel the need to discourage me, or discourage others from signing? If it’s worthless, then why repeat that over and over? It will be what it will be.

          Erin….
          Back when the Gulf Macondo crisis hit…last year…
          I made some flyers and went around to tack some up
          on the local college campus.
          Yawn….ho hum…everybody is afraid they won’t get a job.
          Now when Fuku was Cookin’…I went into
          a computer lab, sat there for awhile, typin, surfin’…
          then went up and wrote on the whiteboard:
          enenews.com
          ….and after going out to the restroom, about a minute later
          the attendant had wiped it off the board.
          An Enforced Video-Game Stupidity in this young
          generation.
          Erin, Please, you have some youthful energy,
          petitions are truly futile, anymore. Ask folks who’ve
          been there. The HUGE effort to put a ballot-initiative
          to DeCriminalize Pot in California…what a big effort,
          everybody worked real hard to Overturn the Cop-Mafia
          Unconstitutional Laws. Everybody made sure the
          voters were registered, valid addresses, all the real
          stuff you are supposed to do in Participatory
          Democracy….Guess What?
          In Case you don’t know, MAFIA judges and Politicians
          can simply Swat away all your best efforts.
          STAND UP AND YELL in an assembly of EDUCATED folks.
          Every bigtime politician is A Satanist or a blind follower.
          Petitions waste time….Host yourself a Viewing Party
          of All the Best, most astounding Facts for Regular TV
          watchers who never get the Real Story…Give ‘em
          the Story!! The Bigwigs still think they are full-bore
          on Nuke power, new Plants, new weapons….

            You might as well try… There is power in numbers, whether they officially respond and acknowledge it or not. The stubborn opposition can sink in from all sides. I’m afraid that’s why they’re trying to lower our numbers! ;)

            To add, every movement forward in cultural evolution started with a few dissenters or revolutionaries…and then there is a quiet, almost imperceptible groundswell and growing acceptance from all sides. The same is possible here with a concerted effort. The cause is certainly worth it!!

            I never thought I’d see the day when so many people would understand the value of non-GMO, organic food and try to “go green.” Even that “Dolphin Tale” movie about saving one injured dolphin against the odds has become a national hit!… It’s been Number One at the box office, thanks to the power in mass numbers!…

            Check your domestic energy supplier and your bank to see how nuclear it is – let them know why you are switching and …… switch to renewable, co-operative, ethical and where possible local.
            electricityinfo.org
            and for banks worldwide
            nuclearbanks.org

            Use charcoal and chalks to write the message on the walls and pavements – take a flag out……… be creative……….do what you can………..take on an organisers role – BE EMPOWERED – the aim here to stop nuclear new build – to phase out fission power – create educational material – talk to people – be happy and follow your heart, we live for love, know that you are loved and have confidence :)

            Petitions are effective to a degree, yet we marched in millions to not go to war and our government would not listen to us, we went and now depleted uranium is destroying d.n.a. – smashing it for generations and for ever; it can never be cleaned up.

            DIRECT ACTION

            is the way forward.

            Re: boycotting, I just don’t know if I could boycott all evil-doing, profiteering jerks if I tried. As much as I’d like to boycott all pharmaceutical companies, for instance, I frankly need some of their products, and those products would be illegal for me to use unless made by a pharm. company.

            For many years, my family and I have tried to boycott Nestle, and just last week one of my kids noticed that the cat food we’d bought was from Nestle, darnitall! There’s just so many pseudonyms for any one corporation, and so many locations, too, that I don’t know how this could ever work on a large scale. Back in the days of mom and pop stores — sure. But now …?

            If I’m incorrect about any of this, please let me know. But that’s my take on it from this current perspective. I agree — would love to help to organize a boycott in theory. I just don’t think it would work, practically speaking.

    I don’t know make/model of each individually damaged reactor of late, but I am starting to sense there is a fundamental flaw in either the design of the plants in general or a flaw in the knowledge of what is actually needed to successfully harness nuclear power. Yeah perhaps there have been problems kept from us until 311 – and maybe 311 blew the lid off the secret by putting everyone’s attention onto the facts like environmental radiation detection, but I am stunned to read of a new *problem* nearly every week.

      here’s a really bad joke:
      The best nuclear power plant will suffer a catastrophic accident once every 200 years. Unfortunately with N plants spread over the Earth we will suffer one such plant issue every ?? years. All these numbers are “fictional” but the point stands.
      Second bad joke:
      Nuclear power plants require custodial attention for several hundred thousand years after you turn them on. What is the probability of society being capable/willing/even here for those years?

      It is a very bad idea to make messes that you can not take care of. Bad! Karma!

    most of the nukes are 40 year old or over, their planned lifespan. and there is the famous bathtub-curve of engineers: chance something breaks is highest in the beginning or near the end (foot and head-end of the tub) and very much less chance to break all in between (the ground of the tub)

  • Florida Power and light has lots to keep under wraps. Turkey Point news not a surprise. Crystal River just north of Tampa where I live has cracks in outer containment, critical structural problems, and has been shut down for years. Also like TP,built in a hurricane prone area @ sea level. FPL just another version of TEPCO.

      The North Carolina-based company estimates repair costs will reach between $900 million and $1.3 billion, and said it plans to have the plant churning out power again in 2014.

      Quite a wad of cash to “churn out power” and a whole lot of other unspeakable tiny teeny weeny, not immediately harmful to the public or the environment, radioactive monsters.
