    Interesting, Komen Pink Products campaign.
    I hope that everybody will take notice.
    If you really Know someone with Breast/Endocrine
    “cancer” challenges…check, carefully, about their
    use of DAIRY Products.
    If you are really serious about this, you must know
    these facts: Milk, particularly Cheeze and ICE CREAM
    are CANCER FUELS….If you think you know something,
    and you think Raw Dairy is better or O.K….or if you
    think Organic Dairy is Better or O.K., well, you are
    like I WAS: Sadly Misinformed, Propagandized by
    a lifetime of advertising and political control by
    the big dairy industry.
    Do You think You, as a Woman, NEED Dairy, for your
    possible Osteoporoesis? Well, congratulations, your
    mind has been Entrained by the Advertising/Medical
    industry which wants ALL of your Money for the damn
    insincere AMA allopathic, pharmacidal “Doctors”.
    Too Much Protein, particularly with the Growth
    Hormone already naturally present in ALL Milk,
    causes you to have Acidic or Acidotic Blood,
    leaching the Calcium from your bones, to try to
    balance the pH to safe levels for Life to Continue.
    So the whole dairy-for-osteoporosis chant is a SCAM.
    and SUSAN G. Komen sponsors M&M Milk Chocolate
    Pink-for-Breast-Cancer-Chocolate….it depends on
    your education depth on certain topics to truly
    appreciate the deep demonic irony. Women have
    been led by the Chocolate Addiction, Led by that
    molten CHEESY yummy growth hormone.
    I admit I Owe my knowledge on Dairy to Robert Cohen,
    the notmilkman at notmilk.com.
    We CRAVE Chocolate and Cheeze because the factors
    are concentrated more than milk. Calves crave to
    Nurse their Mamas, because milk contains CasoMorphin,
    a natural opiate-type pleasure stimulator.
    Yummy, Cheeze!, Yummy, ICE CREAM!!! MMMMMMmm!!!
    But anybody serious about BREAST CANCER Must
    learn why they are now quitting all Dairy Products.
    and Whey Protein Isolate, banned. and and and.
    Go to notmilk.com if you don’t have enough to READ.
    Cohen is a scholarly collector of all dairy industry and
    health related stuff. He’s Very Vegan these days, and
    will share with you his path of transformation from
    fat sickly to serious physical training as a vegan.

    Following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine, the US government permanently closed a US reactor, the graphite-moderated Hanford N-reactor near Richland, Washington. Why? The antiquated reactor too closely resembled the design of the exploded Chernobyl reactor that blanketed much of the northern hemisphere in long-lived radioactive fallout.

    Now following Japan’s 2011 Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, more than 6,000 of you have co-petitioned with us to call upon the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to “Freeze Our Fukushimas” and shutter dangerously old and deteriorating General Electric Mark I boiling water reactors here in the US similar in design to the Fukushima Dai-ichi units. There, nuclear accidents have closed 24 miles of Japan’s coastline to human habitation and forced hundreds of thousands more Japanese to live in sickening radioactive contamination.

    The NRC has scheduled a public hearing to take public comment on requested emergency enforcement actions to suspend operations at these increasingly dangerous Fukushima-style nuclear reactors. Speakers will include Paul Gunter and Kevin Kamps (Beyond Nuclear), Dale Bridenbaugh (former GE engineer), Arnie Gunderson (Fairewinds Associates), Deb Katz (Citizens Awareness Network), Lou Zeller (Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League), Randy Kehler (Safe & Green Campaign), Michael Mariotte (Nuclear Information and Resource Service), Bobbie Paul (Georgia WAND) and more…

    You can participate in this public meeting via the toll free telephone bridge lines or watch the live webcast from NRC headquarters.

    Please mark your calendars and help us to mobilize a national campaign to hasten the closure of the most dangerous atomic reactors in America. Invite your friends, colleagues and post on listserves.

    Another Petition: The Fukushima nuclear disaster has forever destroyed the myth that nuclear power is clean or green: clean energy plants do not explode and release toxic radiation across the globe. That this accident occurred in a highly-industrialized country using U.S.-supplied technology only underscores the inherent danger of nuclear power.

    For the past two years, you have requested that Congress increase the funds available for loans for new nuclear reactor construction by $36 Billion. Congress has not done so.

    We ask you now to end taxpayer support for new nuclear reactors. Specifically, we ask you not to request any additional funds for the Department of Energy’s nuclear loan guarantee program, nor for the research and development of new nuclear reactors, in the FY 2013 budget and future budgets.

    Professor Wade Allison
    Department of Physics, University of Oxford

    “Life and Nuclear Radiation”

    Ever since the Cold War with its threat of nuclear holocaust, radiation has been held in awe. But very few people die in nuclear accidents, in spite of the popular fear that they might. The scientific basis for current nuclear radiation safety is ripe for fundamental re-examination, not because of an impending expansion of nuclear power, but because it asks the wrong questions.

    Wade Allison is Professor Emeritus at Oxford University. He is a nuclear and medical physicist with no connection to the nuclear industry. He is the author of “Radiation and Reason: the impact of science on a culture of fear”.

      Hello all, I had a mysterious internet problem, now online again. Then I was in Somerset with the banners and the good will. It was a great demonstration, lots of fun.
      Please be encouraged to attend these organised non-violent demonstrations, they are brilliant fun and very informative, as well as costing EDF a packet in policing (haha). EDF then gave the police out of date sandwiches for their courtesy lunches, how we laughed when I pointed out that this was surely against the law.

      All this goodwill was blasted away when they drove into our camp on private land and were difficult to remove, though we did non-violently remove them, it was a breach of trust and a stupid move.

    Presidential commission holds public meeting on nuclear waste disposal:

    http://vtdigger.org/2011/10/06/presidential-commission-holds-public-meeting-on-high-level-nuclear-waste-disposal/

    “Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency is looking forward to discussing solutions to the issue of disposal for high-level radioactive wastes, which are being stored at nuclear facilities around our region and the rest of the country with no permanent solution,” said John Giarrusso, planning and preparedness section chief at the Massachusetts agency and co-chair of the Northeast High-Level Radioactive Waste Transportation Task Force. “The Oct.12 Blue Ribbon Commission meeting in Boston is a great opportunity for state and local officials, along with the public, to express their views on this important issue.”

    The Blue Ribbon Commission was established last year by the U.S. Department of Energy to conduct a comprehensive review of policies for managing the “back end” of the nuclear fuel cycle. The commission was created after the government canceled the Yucca Mountain National Repository Project in Nevada.

    The public meeting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 12 at Harvard Medical School Conference Center, 77 Avenue Louis Pasteur, Boston (Longwood). The meeting will include discussions on the draft report and soliciting comments from the general public. It also will include formal presentations, panel discussions and facilitated, small breakout groups for all interested attendees.

    Tuesday Town Hall Meeting Brings Non-Industry Nuclear Energy Speakers
    Oct 10, 2011

    The second town hall-style meeting on the “Lessons Learned from Fukushima” will bring two in-person and two teleconference speakers October 11 at 6:30 p.m. to San Clemente’s Community Center at 100 N. Calle Seville…

    For this week’s meeting, Daniel Hirsch of the nonprofit Committee to Bridge the Gap will attend the meeting. He is also a lecturer on nuclear policy at UC Santa Cruz. Dr. William E. Perkins, a board member of Los Angeles chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility will also be present at the meeting.

    Perkins will share a portion of his 30 minutes with Dr. Helen Caldicott, a pediatrician by training and the former leader of PSR, a charity opposed to nuclear weapons and nuclear power. She will make a presentation by Internet video chat.

    The program will also include a 25-minute video presentation from Arnold Gundersen of Burlington, Vt.-based Fairewinds Associates. Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president, will be available by teleconference for public interaction.

    THE NIRS WHITE HOUSE PETITION–A NEW APPROACH….

    RAISE YOUR VOICES AND SEND LETTERS TO PRESIDENT OBAMA THROUGH OUR SYSTEMS, NOT THEIRS!

    ACT TO END TAXPAYER SUBSIDIES FOR NEW NUCLEAR REACTORS!

    Dear Friends,

    As you know, in late September, the White House launched a new website to enable people to directly petition the Obama administration. The White House promised a formal response to all petitions which received 5,000 signatures within 30 days.

    NIRS decided to try out that site and created a petition that demands something President Obama has the clear power to do: to stop asking Congress for taxpayer subsidies for new nuclear reactors, beginning with the next federal budget.

    As it turns out, the White House website and petition-signing process was flawed, cumbersome and enormously frustrating for many people. As of today, nearly 12,000 people (11,981 to be exact) tried to sign this petition directly through NIRS own servers. Thousands more tried to sign through Facebook, Twitter and the like. Only 3,815 of these thousands have been successful so far. THANK YOU to each and every one of you who signed and who tried to sign.

    Now we’re going back to a tried-and-true approach: Please send a letter to President Obama, with the identical content as the petition

    MIAMI, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Ahead of a vote by the Florida Public Service Commission on October 24, the mayors of South Miami and Pinecrest will speak out at 11:30 a.m. Thursday (October 20, 2011) against the current cost recovery scenario for nuclear power, which requires hundreds of millions of dollars in higher utility bills for Florida ratepayers in order to foot the bill for proposed new nuclear reactors that may never be built.

    The City of South Miami, Pinecrest, and Biscayne Park – along with the Miami-Dade League of Cities – have passed resolutions opposing the early cost recovery law. The two mayors also will encourage Floridians who oppose paying up front for uncertain nuclear projects to speak out to the PSC through an online campaign.
    News event speakers will be:

    * Dr. Phillip Stoddard, mayor of South Miami, FL;
    * Cindy Lerner, mayor of Pinecrest, FL;
    * Jamie Whitlock, legal counsel, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, and an attorney with Gary A. Davis & Associates; and

    * Dr. Mark Cooper, senior fellow for economic analysis at the Institute for Energy and the Environment at Vermont Law School, who has submitted expert testimony to the Florida PSC on the cost recovery issue.

    TO PARTICIPATE: You can join this live, phone-based Florida news conference (with full, two-way Q&A) at 11:30 a.m. EDT on October 20, 2011 by dialing 1 (877) 270-2148. Ask for the “Opposition to Florida nuclear cost recovery” telenews event.

    CAN’T PARTICIPATE?: A streaming audio replay of the Florida news event will be available on the Web at http://216.250.243.12/nuclear_ripoff.html as of 5 p.m. EDT on October 20, 2011.

    On October 30, 2011, citizens of Vermont and the tri-state region will serve Entergy its notice that March 21, 2012 is the final day of operation for the Vermont Yankee nuclear reactor.

    By its decision to refuel the Vermont Yankee nuclear reactor, Entergy Corporation is making a bold and arrogant statement that they do not intend to abide by Vermont state law and the will of the people. The state of Vermont has served notice and on Sunday, October 30th, the people will serve notice. The Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant’s days of operation are numbered. We are repowering the people and repowering our tri-state community with sustainable energy.

    Sacred Sites Peace Walk for a Nuclear Free World comes to the Bay Area:
    http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/10/27/18695623.php
    Some of the peacewalkers are from Japan, fresh from the disaster at Fukushima. Nuclear energy can never be made wholly safe, they assert; especially nuclear facilities like Diablo that should never have been sited near earthquake and tsunami-prone zones.

    Adds Seeley: “We’re walking in support and solidarity with the people of Fukushima. What happened at Fukushima, happens here, too—we are all connected.”

    The general public is warmly invited to take part in the peace walk; volunteers may elect to walk for an hour, a day, or the entire walk. Discussing the walk on the Community Currency radio show, organizers Linda Seeley and Louise Dunlap, also expressed solidarity with the occupations and hoped that their walk would also visit the occupations along the way, including the ones in San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, San Jose, and Oakland. In many ways the walk and the occupations are similar, in that they bring people together for a shared purpose and nurture community, building the vital foundation for social change.

    They will be in Santa Cruz on Friday and some will probably visit the occupation. On Saturday, October 29th, they are scheduled to walk from the Resource Center for Non-Violence to visit a sacred site. [Some will also be speaking at the 1:00 pm Peace and Unity March at Watsonville Main Plaza (Main St. & East Beach)] In the evening at 6:30 pm there will be a Potluck dinner and informal sharing/storytelling at 612 Ocean St. (new RCNV building).

    Sunday through Tuesday, they will be walking to and through San Jose. From Mission San Jose, they will head for Livermore on Tuesday. Wednesday, November 2nd, will bring them to Hayward. Thursday, November 3rd will they will walk to Oakland. Friday they will walk to Berkeley for an Evening Pot Luck Dinner, Speak Out & Discussion facilitated by Joanna Macy at the Berkeley Fellowship…

    Just want to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who signed my petition to end the use of nuclear energy in the U.S.!!! I’m proud to be counted among you, and I’m grateful for your support. You folks are awesome! :-)

    Guess we need to work harder on spreading the word and educating the public. Lte’s, editorials, web posts, letters in response to web posts — lots of opportunities out there. That’s what I’ll be working on, anyway.

    And B&B … little early for the wine, but hows about a mimosa? ;-) I learned a lot, my family learned a lot – overall positive progress, even though we didn’t reach our goal.

    Again – thanks to everyone who signed or otherwise helped to spread the word! :-)

    Yes – way to go Belgium! Let’s not let any more nations beat us Americans to the punch, folks! Let’s make the U.S. the next country to abandon nuclear power! ;-)

    And I should’ve said this above, but an even bigger THANK YOU to enenews!!!!! It’s because of you folks that I could even start writing about this subject.

    What’s the best way to reach you – the tip submission form? Or is there an e-mail addy I’ve missed around here?

      “The economy is broken. One out of every six Americans lives in poverty. The rich are getting richer and the middle class and poor doing worse. Meanwhile, Wall Street and the top 1% are getting record bonuses, earning record profits, and still refusing to pay their fair share. It’s immoral, unfair, and it’s destroying the American Dream.

      “Across the country we are taking to the streets to show our anger and to hold Wall Street accountable.That’s why on Saturday, November 5, we will take action against the biggest offenders on Wall Street: Bank of America, Chase, and other Wall St. banks. We’ll demonstrate that we refuse to support their businesses if they do not support us and America by paying their fair share.

      “We’ll visit their corporate headquarters, local branches, and town plazas with our message: Make Wall Street Pay! If they do not support the 99%, we’ll move our money elsewhere, damaging their business and their brand. By making Wall Street pay we’re one step closer to economic justice and a country where the American Dream is a reality.”

    please read & share this letter and support the mothers of Fukushima trying to protect not just their children but yours too, through campaigning to avoid the burning of radioactive rubble in Japan which will re-eject the radioactivity from March’s disaster into the atmoshere…

    Just came across this:

    “Tell the BRC: Protect people, not the nuclear industry

    UPDATE, November 3, 2011

    While we’re not sure of the exact reason (we believe your comments most likely simply overloaded the BRC’s e-mail servers), it is clear that the BRC did not receive most comments submitted from October 27-October 31. The BRC says it has now fixed the problem, and has extended the comment deadline until November 7, 2011. Please re-submit your comments now, or, if you didn’t get a chance to before the original Oct. 31 deadline, please submit for the first time!

    October 27, 2011

    The Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future (BRC) was formed by President Obama and Energy Secretary Steven Chu in the wake of the administration’s sensible decision to end the proposed Yucca Mountain, Nevada radioactive waste project.

    The BRC was not charged with finding a new site for the nation’s high-level radioactive waste; rather, it was charged with examining the potential options for coping with the massive waste problem now on our hands.

    Unfortunately, the BRC was stacked with nuclear industry interests and its final draft report, which relies heavily on the long-discredited notion of establishing new “interim” storage sites for radioactive waste, seems much more interested in assuring continued generation of radioactive waste than addressing its fundamental problems. Establishment of new “interim” storage sites, with no permanent solution for radioactive waste storage in site, would simply result in mass waste transportation campaigns that would needlessly endanger millions of Americans–a concept that in the 1990s correctly led to the coining of the phrase “Mobile Chernobyl.” In addition, the BRC draft report does not explicitly reject the dangerous and dirty practice of reprocessing nuclear waste, as it should.”

    NRC staff will take comments on proposal for new Fermi plant:

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-ap-mi-newnuke-michigan,0,2702111.story

    FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich.—
    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff says there are no environmental reasons to reject DTE Energy Co.’s application to build a nuclear power plant next to its existing Fermi 2 plant in southeastern Michigan.

    The NRC’s staff has released a report for public comment on its analysis of plans for the Fermi 3 plant. The complex is near Monroe and Lake Erie in Monroe County’s Frenchtown Township, northwest of Toledo, Ohio.

    The staff will discuss the analysis and take comments Dec. 15 at Monroe County Community College.

    The Monroe Evening News says (http://j.mp/vPmQM1 ) the proposed cooling tower is larger than the two serving Fermi 2.

    DTE says it’s considering a 1,600 megawatt reactor. Fermi 2 is 1,100-megawatts.

    Opponents say the plant would harm wetlands and feed toxic algae in Lake Erie.

    —>WHERE: SPOKANE, WASHINGTON

    —>WHY: Radioactive chemical waste could travel through Spokane

    —>DATE: Public meeting in Spokane starts at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16th at the Red Lion Hotel at the Park.

    —>INFO: “If proposals get final approval to use Hanford as a radioactive chemical waste dump site, city officials say a lot of that waste could be traveling right through Spokane.

    Spokane City Leaders say two pending proposals by the United States Department of Energy have remained on the table to use Hanford as a national radioactive chemical waste dump for the last 8 years. They say the plan includes the transportation of more than 12,000 truckloads of radioactive waste. They say many of those could come through Spokane on Interstate 90.”

    THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING NIRS ON GIVE TO THE MAX DAY!

    BACK TO WORK: PLEASE SIGN AVAAZ PETITION TO EXPAND EVACUATIONS AND PROTECT CHILDREN IN JAPAN
    November 10, 2011

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you to everyone who supported NIRS on Give to the Max Day yesterday! We appreciate it greatly; results below.

    But first, at the urging of the growing Womens’ Movement Against Nuclear Power in Japan (worthwhile in-depth article on this here), the international organization Avaaz.org yesterday posted a new petition to expand evacuations in Japan and protect the children of Fukushima.

    Avaaz has a wide reach (and NIRS and Japanese groups began promoting this yesterday on Facebook, Twitter and the like), and this petition already has 100,000 signatures!

    We hope you’ll add your name now here. http://org2.democracyinaction.org/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=%2FnidSGEOY57CpG%2Bv4tNJ3hCD9NagAJ0Y

    Give to the Max Day results
    Unfortunately, we didn’t win any major grant awards, although we came very close in the 4-5 pm hour. A local religious group, Little Lights Urban Ministries, edged us out that hour (we believe, although we haven’t been able to confirm, that we came in 2nd that hour). Little Lights also handily beat all DC-area non-profits overall as well with 729 donors totaling more than $37,000. We came in 24th in total number of donors overall, beating hundreds of much larger organizations. …
