There are a number of reasons to be concerned about what effects the closure of Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant will have on the region.

"nothing Big Oil has done has ever caused MEGA-Deaths, unlike Chernobyl did and Fukushima is"
37 dead at Chernobyl. What British Petroleum calls "an average day".
#22 Dec 23, 2013
Even the biggest nuketards don't make or beLIEve such
ridiculous claims about Chernobyl...

Should all the nuke plants be shut down
And no more brought on line….
At least we’d halt production now
Of waste that outlasts time!
We’d halt the hazards imminent
In all those poison plants!
We seek this out of consciousness
It’s futures only chance
10x MORE Radiation From Fukushima Than ALL Past Nuclear Tests!
Experts Voice Alarm Over 'Cancer Surge' In Young People
#23 Dec 23, 2013
One million? Why not 10 million, while you're at it?
#24 Dec 23, 2013
embellishing beyond all beLIEf is what those nuke 'experts' ewe listen to do, like 'Doctor' Ann Coulter etc. saying "Radiation is good for you"
#25 Dec 23, 2013
One million excess mortality means the population exposure to exces radiation was 20 million man-sievert. I wonder how that number was reached?
"0.5 % overall excess risk in non-accidental daily mortality was observed for each 20 ppb increase in the 24-hour average ozone concentration (approximately equal to a 30 ppb increase in the 8-hour average) on the same day. There was evidence that the effect was greatest on the day of exposure with smaller residual effects being evident for several days. A cumulative 1.04% excess risk was observed for each 20 ppb increase in the 24-hour average concentration during the previous week. The ozone-mortality relationship was robust even after controlling for possible effects of particulate matter and other air pollutants"
But yeah, keep scaring the sheeple, that's what BigOil pays you for (reasonably well, given where you live).
#26 Dec 24, 2013
speakin of sheep, the ones in Scotland are supposedly now finally free from the radiation dose they got from Chernobyl-
One thing's for sure, nukescum will always downplay the reality of radiation dangers because their bottom line depends on keeping the wool over people's eyes
Keep crunching ewer numbers on Chernobyl which caused One Million to die young, while Fukushima is counting up it's numbers of cancer
Now get to work on playing This down!->
Thyroid Cancers Surge Among Fukushima Youths
It seems US sailors aren't the only ones who three short years after the Fukushima disaster are being stricken by cancers and other radiation-induced diseases. For once, the media blackout surrounding the Japanese nuclear power plant tragedy appears to have crumbled, and at least a portion of the truth has been revealed. Hong Kong's SCMP reports that fifty-nine young people in Fukushima prefecture have been diagnosed with or are suspected of having thyroid cancer. Notably, all of newly diagnosed were younger than 18 at the time of the nuclear meltdown in the area in March 2011. They were identified in tests by the prefectural government, which covered 239,000 people by the end of September.
And while it is not rocket surgery to put two and two together, now that the data is in the public domain, here come the experts to explain it away.
Shockingly, a month ago, prefectural officials deemed it unlikely that the increase in suspected and confirmed cases of cancer was linked to radiation exposure. Their "logic" is that in the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, it was not until four or five years after the accident that thyroid cancer cases surged. Apparently the thought that the local cancer victims may have been subject to radiation orders of magnitude higher than Chernobyl thanks to a lying government which consistently repeated that "all is well" has not crossed anyone's mind.

Fukushima Cleanup Is A 'Comedy Of Errors'- Vid

Meanwhile oiltrains and oilrigs explode as on schedule, killing actual people (not figments of lurid imagination).
So how did that 20 million man-sievert exposure figure come out?
#28 Dec 25, 2013
A lot of fantasy on here.

"Fukushima Cleanup Is A 'Comedy Of Errors'- Vid "
Lac Megantic cleanup on the other side does not exist as it's not reported in the stooge media.
50 people were torched to death, and the government is still "considering" charges ... 6 months later.

''When you hear 'no immediate danger'[from nuclear radiation] then you should run away as far and as fast as you can.''
-Alexey Yablokov, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and adviser to president Mikhail Gorbachev at the time of Chernobyl
Ever hear of the later great Dr. John Gofman?
He was one of the Manhattan Project inner core members and helped make the original nuke bombs
Then he became a MD and got govt.$$ to do research on low-level radiation, and after his studies started proving that it DOES cause cancer the nuketastic powers that be cut off the funding
He was no 'hippy', he was a pro-nuclear scientist who turned anti-nuclear (same with Einstein and others) http://www.google.com/#q=John+Gofman+nuclear+...
^Oh and his findings have been backed up by more recent university studies on low level radiation
Russian Experts: Fukushima pollution spreads all over Earth, clearly a large amount of fish, seaweeds, and everything in ocean has been polluted — These products are the main danger for mankind as they can end up being eaten by people on a massive scale
What Does Government Do When People Start Living Healthier? Tax That, Too, Obviously
#34 Dec 27, 2013
Anti-nuclear bombs not Anti-nuclear power.
#35 Dec 27, 2013
yet Another thing ewe think ewe know about but once Again prove ewerself an idjit about!
Gofman's own research turned him against ALL nuclear sh't!
THE PLOWBOY INTERVIEW
Mother Jones magazine
NUCLEAR AND ANTINUCLEAR SCIENTIST
John W. Gofman, Ph.D., M.D., is one of America's most prominent critics of nuclear power. He's performed extensive research on the hazards of radiation
There are, of course, many eloquent spokespersons in the antinuclear movement ... but John Gofman is unique among them. The San Francisco-based physician/chemist is both a highly respected scientist (the American College of Cardiology selected him as one of the 25 leading heart disease researchers of the past quarter-century) and a person who speaks about the nuclear power industry with firsthand knowledge of its workings ... since he was, from 1962 to 1972, an Atomic Energy Commission employee whose very job was to study the effect of radiation on human health. What's more, long before Dr. Gofman became known for his research projects on heart disease and radiation, he was actually a member of the Manhattan Project group that produced the world's first atomic weapon!
In other words, this experienced scientist is not a Johnny-come-lately to the antinuclear movement. Instead, he's a man who originally supported atomic energy ... but who found his views, and his entire life, changed because he held a firm belief in scientific honesty.
and of course there are others besides Gofman...
In this video nuclear engineers Arnie Gundersen and David Lochbaum discuss how the US regulators and regulatory process have left Americans unprotected.
That was the year, Blanch says, that as an engineer at Northeast Utilities, he found a “major safety deficiency” in the instruments that monitored levels of the water used to cool reactors.
He reported his findings to the company and to the NRC. He says that his findings were ignored, because the nuclear industry is more concerned with making money than with safety.
According to Blanch, the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is one example of that concern. According to published reports, the plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power Co., cut corners on safety and preparedness before last month’s massive earthquake and tsunami heavily damaged the facility.

This shit is so old and out dated.
Don' t you dare think on our own!
#37 Dec 27, 2013
I'm flattered by your childish impersonations of me but I still think you are both idiots.
#38 Dec 29, 2013
I am a child so it is no wonder that I am flattered by childish impersonations of me. It fits right in with my childish propensity to call people names instead of engaging in a positive way and it is also consistent with my continual reference to juvenile sexual thoughts.
#39 Dec 29, 2013
I see that you are still upset that the teabaggers chose their own name and it backfired on them.
Time to move on.
