Re: Boston: Expert public discussion - post Fukushima

Well, you guys can pat each other on the back, but if you went to the presentation, or if you watched the video http://new.livestream.com/FukushimaLessons/boston#! you'd see for yourself that the presentations were excellent and VERY informative. Of course, I wouldn't expect you to agree with someth...

Fukushima on the Hudson

A very interesting article about Indian Point, following the conference by experts and ex-Prime Minister of Japan in NY. If anyone has information to counter the points they make, I'd like to hear them! Fukushima on the Hudson: Could a nuclear accident happen near NYC? http://america.aljazeera.com/a...

Re: UCS Report about the NRC not doing a good job

I don't want to get into silly arguments with them either. But. I still think that not commenting on such issues renders the posts worthless.

Received a warning from Moderator

I just realized that I had a private message from the moderator (sent Sep 7, 2013) warning me not to post controversial messages in these forums. This is unbelievable. In the age of openness, the internet, freedom of expression, I can't post disagreeing with others in this forum? That's the last thi...

Re: Boston: Expert public discussion - post Fukushima

Really? So you don't like Gundersen, a well respected nuclear scientist and Jaczko, an ex- NRC Commissioner? Why, because their views are not tainted by the nuclear industry propaganda? And how about Naoto Kan, the former Japanese Prime Minister? You don't like him either? Take a look here: http://e...

Is anyone going to this panel discussion tomorrow? http://www.beyondnuclear.org/home/2013/10/7/for-those-in-new-york-and-boston-a-chance-to-hear-kan.html Apparently these well-known, nuclear knowledgeable people will be discussing what should be done post Fukushima. I wish I were closer, I wouldn't ...

Re: Fukushima, Scientist letter to UN

Well, what a surprise! Let's just discount scientists whose findings don't agree with our beliefs. Can you substantively argue about any of the "specific" issues they raise? If so, please do, otherwise there is no need to post your silly arguments. I will shortly post some other links to other group...

Yeah, and may be the seven dwarfs will come and help with that, together with other characters from different fairy tales, right? Are you kidding? Who will believe in this "magic"?

Fukushima - A Weapon's Site ??

Take a look here. Some VERY interesting information about the Daiichi reactors at Fukushima. http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/09/fukushima-secret-nuclear-weapons.html So may be that's why all the secrecy and TEPCO's inability to deal with the problem. Anyone here have information to support/refut...

Re: Sr-90 Biological Half Life ??

OscarG, it took me a while, but I got some of those numbers for you, as published by TEPCO. Take a look here (attached). They don't have specific Sr90 numbers (they say under analysis), but they have the total beta, of which I think Sr90 is the major contributor. Actually the concentrations are goin...

Re: Energy Sources of the near future -Fracking

KeltPhys, here are a bunch of references about how bad fracking might be. I used to be a supporter, until I started reading up on it and realized that we are only given part of the picture. It's pretty bad :-(
