A very interesting and informative document. The Nuclear industry needs to come clean and take responsibility.

Stop subsidizing nuclear!

I ve voiced my opinion before. Seeing the reckless behavior of TAPCO at Fukushima reminded me that we (government) should stop subsidizing nuclear power to make it look economically attractive. Let it survive on is own and if it can't let it fade away. No more subsidizing technologies and industries...

Re: Radioactive water leaks at Fukushima

No, I don't, but I am not the one doubting the numbers in the guardian, you are so you need to track down the "better" sources you are speaking of.

Re: Radiation Facts, Risks & Realities

Thanks Talmus. These types of documents are good for those of us who have an interest, but are not working in the nuclear industry.

Re: Radioactive water leaks at Fukushima

John: The radiation levels you are seeking were part of my previous post. 10 hours of working in the area and the doses are high enough for radiation sickness. You want more than that? I am not in the nuclear industry and don't know that much about the details, etc. but they said 100 millisieverts p...

Re: Radioactive water leaks at Fukushima

Finally, someone else is really interested in what is going on here, the worst nuclear disaster yet! After I posted the original message and saw no response, I had pretty much given up on this group. Anyway back to the "serious" situation at Fukushima. I don't know of any "official" sites with infor...

Radioactive water leaks at Fukushima

Hundreds of tonnes of radioactive water has leaked at Fukushima. Apparently, it's enough to prompt the event's re-classification to a serious incident. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/08/21/japan-nuclear-leak-radioactive/2680349/ This is something very new (a couple of days), but also ...

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

Helen22, that's all you had to say about this? Why not post some "real" comments? Actually, it's interesting that my post was read over 3000 times and not a single person commented.

Earthquake real cause of Fukushima nuclear accident

Take a look here to see why that would turn the Japanese nuclear industry on its head!

Re: How about these Reports on Nuclear?

That's why the report is one-sided. It starts with a pre-conceived notion and then does whatever it can to prove it. Wait, don't all reports work like that? Do you really think that researchers start writing a report thinking "Wherever it takes us"? Let's really talk about the substance of the repo...

All the planning in the work doesn't help. It's "execution" that gets things done!

Re: Lunar Base Radiation Shielding Design Report

Let's worry about designing effective shielding and controls for "earthbound" radiation sources and then we can worry about the moon and other places.
