A stunning new report indicates the U.S. Navy knew that sailors from the nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan took major radiation hits from the Fukushima atomic power plant after its meltdowns and explosions nearly three years ago.

So the “all the above” energy strategy now deems we dump another $6.5 billion in bogus loan guarantees down the atomic drain. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz has announced finalization of hotly contested taxpayer handouts for the two Vogtle reactors being built in Georgia. Another $1.8 billion waits to be pulled out of your pocket and poured down the radioactive sink hole.
A nuke-powered drone strike on fiscal sanity.

Toshi and Pete Seeger defy description except through the sheer joy and honor it was to know them, however briefly.

Fukushima continues to spew out radiation. The quantities seem to be rising, as do the impacts.
The site has been infiltrated by organized crime. There are horrifying signs of ecological disaster in the Pacific and human health impacts in the U.S.
But within Japan, a new State Secrets Act makes such talk punishable by up to ten years in prison.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal a “historic mistake.” was seized upon as evidence that this must be bad for Israel. Netanyahu also said, “This accord must bring about one outcome: the dismantling of Iran’s military nuclear capability,” as if that was not what the interim deal could achieve.

The nuclear crisis that just won’t end has taken a dangerous turn as Japanese authorities admit radiation levels around Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant are 18 times higher than previously thought. The Fukushima nuclear crisis is becoming a case study in mismanagement as both the meltdown and continual confusion are a result of failures of communication.

In the last couple days I wrote about the Nuclear Power Industry and the ramifications of years of deceit and deliberate overstatement of the benefits versus the cost of nuclear power.
Well, guess what…can’t live with ‘em, the power company’s will make you pay to live without ‘em:

In June, after more than five years as president, President Obama finally proposed a climate action plan for America. True to form, the president gave an eloquent speech, with strong words for those still in denial about the severity of the crisis we face: “We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society.”
Unfortunately for all of us, the blueprint he presented is more PR than plan.

Just when it seemed things might be under control at Fukushima, we find they are worse than ever. Immeasurably worse.
Massive quantities of radioactive liquids are now flowing through the shattered reactor site into the Pacific Ocean. And their make-up is far more lethal than the “mere” tritium that has dominated the headlines to date.
