    EX skf is covering it too:

    "…The spokesman said the company could use water from a fire hose to cool the pool if necessary. The used uranium rods in the pool could cause the water to boil within 25 hours without additional coolant; in an extreme scenario the rods could overheat, risking the eventual release of radiation.

    The NRC said in a statement that it expected water levels would begin to abate within the next several hours."

    Let's hope the NRC is correct.

    HAARP Superstorm Sandy is now centered over New Brighton, PA, just north of Pittsburgh. Can this storm continue to push westward, against the prevailing winds? Time will tell. Winds in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana continue to be in the low 20 mph range. Pockets of continue only over WV. Sandy may have been a tropical storm managed by HAARP into the Sandy Super Storm October Surprise it is today. Meanwhile, Romney is showing us what it would be like in a nation without FEMA (or much of a national government), where people had to rely completely on charity, rather than government aid, during a disaster. Romney wants to eliminate FEMA. Does either Obama or Romney want to turn off HAARP and shut down weather modification? If the government just came clean about weather modification, you might find that there is some support out here for what you are trying to do. If you continue the conspiracy of silence on weather modification, our united opposition will continue. No nukes. Peace.

      That massive HAARP outburst over Rhode Island a few days ago evidently had the effect of morphing piddling little hurricane Sandy into a storm of extreme breadth as well as giving it the impetus to push westward. The behavior of this storm is what separates it from others in living memory. Although I normally avoid using popular catch phrases, the term "frankenstorm" definitely applies to Sandy!

      I feel like one of the few people in "Invasion of the Bodysnatchers" who have figured out what is really going on. This is from the cover page of an official government document:

      This haarp codswallop is just leaving my draw dropping.

      You lot sound like witch hunters.

      Seriously, have respect for a storm, mother nature and planet earth.

      and wake up to yourselves, this stuff belongs in la la land.

      It's like praying to Thor because lightning hit your home. It's dogma. It's just not science.

      It totally discredits this site to spout the haarp/chemtrail silliness. Please stop. I thought I'd found a good website in enenews, now it's falling into another prison planet gullibility zone.

        Hi richard,
        meteorology is complex, isn't it??

        • richard richard

          well, apparently not as complex as I thought.

          in fact, many things are apparently not as complex as i thought.

          it seems the laws of physics have caught up with the modern push button world and has made everything simple and easy and understandable to even the most home-educated amongst us.

          and if you ask the pro-nukers, radiation doesn't even radiate anymore. what a wonderful universe we live in, so compliant these days.

    New Brighton? As over in Beaver Valley nuclear plant?

    I forgot to post this. Sigh…

    Pennslyvania nuclear plants. There are five.

    Sandy Pushes Nation's Oldest Nuclear Facility To Declare Rare 'Alert'
    by Editor, Posted Oct 30th 2012 9:42AM

    NEW YORK, Oct 30 (Scott DiSavino) – Hurricane Sandy slowed or shut a half-dozen U.S. nuclear power plants, while the nation's oldest facility declared a rare "alert" after the record storm surge pushed flood waters high enough to endanger a key cooling system.

    “The level of devastation at the Jersey Shore is unthinkable” -NJ Gov. Chris Christie

    No, guv, this level of devastation and far worse has happened repeatedly in coastal areas. What I find unthinkable is that the kind of housing construction I see in the above clips is approved in the building code.

    When I was participating in hurricane restoration in the Lower 9th Ward there were essentially two kinds of tasks: the clean-up of the wooden buildings reduced to a pile of splinters and the securing of the standing solidly upright buildings. The lunacy of building BELOW sea level aside, the homes that withstood the force of the Industrial Canal unleashed were constructed of cinder block or brick (which is not your material of choice in an earthquake-prone region).

    To put Sandy in perspective watch this newsreel of the Great New England Hurricane (1938)

      Amazing, amaberlight – many thanks for this link!! Am making a brief post about it on off-topic thread.

  • enoughalready45 enoughalready45

    Location, Location, Location.
    Homes built on the beach sandwiched between the ocean and a nuclear plant. Talk about rolling the dice.
    Frankly I'm surprised the damage isn't worse.
    Must be the sea wall that was there that kept them from being scraped off their foundations.

    looks like jimmy has sway over the bbc
    at the bottom of the article

    "The oldest nuclear power plant in the US, Oyster Creek in New Jersey, remains on alert due to rising water"

    no detail
    like fukushima..

    only a problem with 1 NPP??
    the new bbc??

    EACH HAARP HAS A SIGNATURE just like any radio station you can trace it back to the broadcaster. I have been up 24 hours helping over my ham radio to help people lost and the storm that ravaged the coast. I will be back in a few days MARKWW

    • richard richard

      each haaaaa hha haa haaarp statement has a signature of looney tunes.

        ahahaha, and your name's dick, ahahahaha!

        • richard richard

          oh my gosh. very witty.

          but not as funny as the farce that is chemtrails and haarp. crazy distractions there. fair dinkum home schooled nutter crazy.

          • Jebus Jebus

            I really wish I could say the same for you Richard.
            If the Admin didn't want that to be posted he would say so.
            Who are you to say it can't be.
            If you don't agree, offer up some opposing evidence that it is a farce.
            You have brought nothing to the table. Nothing at all.
            You only bitch and gripe about something that you believe to not be true.
            Millions of people, all over the world, have offered evidence that there is something to it.
            If you don't agree, post something that shows that your esteemed opinion is gospel.
            Back it up Richard or pass it up and let it be…

            • richard richard

              I'm not complaining for the benefit of admin, I'm complaining for the benefit of those who want truth and not distractions. (like me).

              And really, I don't have to offer anything to disprove something that doesn't exist, that's a poor argument.

              I KNOW chemtrails are non-existant. I also know that the amount of energy and focus required to direct weather is colossal, you are being disrepectful to the power of Earth with bollocks like haarp. No human or group of humans have that ability. Zero. You're talking about energies sources the size of a planet.. I don't see any Death Star in the night sky.

              Millions don't believe in this garbage, you're making that up. At the same time. millions believe in Santa Claus and the bible.. just because a large group of people are gullible doesn't make something the truth.

              It's just dogma.

              I will continue to plague any haarp or chemtrail comments that are not in the off-topic area. Just as someone has a right to blog such garbage, I have the right to oppose the nonsense.

              I will not let falsehood just 'be'.. you talking to the wrong person if you expect me to follow the 'party' line.

              • Jebus Jebus

                Well by that logic I just have to thank God that your opinion doesn't matter because I have nothing to prove otherwise… 😉

                Richard… In 1995, the Fossil fuel industry funded a research project with 3 top phyicists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. The purpose of the research project was to find a way to combat global warming through the laws of physics. First: This was ironic because, at least in public, the fossil fuel industry does not admit the existence of global warming.

                The team assembled to do the research included Dr. Edward Teller (The Father of the H Bomb), Lowell Wood, and Roderick Hyde. They explored seeding the upper atmosphere with metalic compounds. Since metal is reflective, the idea was to put a reflecting layer in space in order to deflect a small portion of the sun's heat and energy back into space.

                The physicists presented the rsults of their study, "Global Warming and Ice Ages: 1. Prospects For Physics Based Modulation of Global Change." They called the process "scattering," not chemtrails; it is also called "atmospheric obscuration," and "geo-engineering. Chemtrails is the layman's term.

                You can find a copy of their presentation onthe DOE web site:

                Dennis Kucinich submitted legislation to ban this "chemtrail" (warfare) use of space. But he never got it out of committee. Maybe the committee members, like you, either didn't believe in chemtrails or in global warming.

                I hope, like Yorick in Hamlet, you can open your mind. Give it a try.

                We have been modifying the weather since the 50s. Funny thing is Richard, in the 80s, while in Australia, I first learned, of the USA being brought up on charges of weather modification, at the UN, various countries where demanding something be done.

                I guess suppression of the news is global.

                Dig, do some research, from cloud seeding to all sorts of stuff.. not fiction. You will catch up.. we are reaching the tipping point, and it will become harder and harder to deny.

                I understand conspiracy theories, and I understand how labeling something that, will buy the perpetrators years, as no one wants to be that fool.

                However, give this a consideration

                • lickerface lickerface

                  Also out in the open is the US patent by Hughes (Aircraft) for the purpose of using Welsbach materials (alumium oxide up to 10 microns in size) for the purpose of modifying weather. It's becoming so much easier to connect the dots to explaining chemtrails that it takes an extremely ignorant person to try shrugging them off as "conspiracy". Once people are open to researching the possibilities and intent with such technology, it is harder to NOT make a connection. Then, people who discount the information start looking really crazy and la la landish.

      • Anthony Anthony

        Richard, you must have missed the memo. I was watching a new TV series called Conspiracy Files…. a well done, non-loony program dedicated to revealing secret information held back from the public. To amazement, they showed a brief soundbite of a past mucky-muck to I believe Clinton, who CLEARLY and CALMLY confirmed the existence of the technology you seem dedicated to ridicule. To that point, two weeks ago, I was open to the idea it existed. This particular person was being profiled in one of those nicey-nice commercials for Govt Officials. His commercial was about defense and his message was his acknowledgement of knowing whether modification technology was in use and being employed as a threat. You have probably offended some people.

        • Karnage

          If you act normal when you tell bad news, it must be ok.

          I wish we would have impeached him to get him away from the white house, and back to his small town in the hills. I was unaware that you could live like a rock star in the WH.

          Instead of starting a band to get famous/money/power/Immunity, I think i may run for political status instead. Hell in my state we got a guy named Markwayne running for senate. Sounds like his tree goes straight up, with no branches.

          • Karnage

            And Hil's voice annoys the hell out of me. How can you punk a Nuclear ravaged country into "Maintaining Nuclear Power" because "The US Pres urges you too".

            They came out with a game a couple years back called home front. She was put in the intro, and stated that NKorea had tested missles, and built up a good story line for the game.

            Don't forget how weak we are as a country right now. Jefferson tried to protect us from this, but Hamilton had the snakes tongue. History is repeating itself yet again. I pray for all of you Ene-newsers and your loved ones that we will survive this.


    MASSIVE LOOTING HAS BROKEN OUT IN CONEY ISLAND and it is not being mentioned at all on the news here in NYC!! The washington Times is reporting it.

    The Washington Times is reporting Massive looting occurring in Coney Island right now, But so far not one word has been mentioned on the news here in NYC!!

    PICKET: Mass Looting begins in NYC

    By Kerry Picket – The Washington Times

    October 30, 2012, 12:38PM

    Concerns regarding looting in New York started days ago before Hurricane Sandy even hit the lower tip of Manhattan. A report coming in from NY Scanner, a tweeter who monitors New York City's public safety channel, stated that NYPD officers have been dispatched to the 60th precinct to help out with mobs who are looting storefronts:

    NYPD's 60th precinct was unavailable for comment.

    The Gothamist is also reporting that looting occurred in downtown Manhattan at the South Street Seaport and New York State Senator Malcolm Smith told NY1 he saw reports that described looting in Queens.

    The New York City Amateur Radio Emergency Communication Service (NYC-ARECS) is reporting :

    'Chief of Department' of the #NYPD now @ Coney Island with the boys in blue from many precincts trying to stop the looting crowds

    #NYPD escalating mass looter situation to a 'Level One' asking for the Boro Task Force for manpower to come assemble at location

    Police in Coney Island shouting into the radio "mass looting over here." Other precincts helping…

    None of this could possibly have to do with disrupted arctic oscillation patterns and extraordinarily high sea temperatures in the Atlantic due to Climate Change *****(which the renown Daily Mail's science section has proven not to exist ((in print – no less))… The 99% of scientists that do suggest that strong weather events strength and frequency are increased by the effects of Man Made Climate Change, obviously, are being paid to cover up HAARP and are lying about Man Made Climate Change just to get more funding for their useless and leftest politically motivated science programs….

    It is clear to anyone, who just takes the time to surf the real science internet sites, this event is all because of HAARP…
