The douchtastic IKMTY excretes this pure bullsh't:
"Paul Blanch isn't a nuclear engineer"

Are ewe still contending that Arnie Gundersen isn't a nuke engineer either?
And that low level radiation hasn't been proven to cause cancers when it has?

'Ex-industry insider goes extra mile to fight Vt. Yankee'
Times Argus
http://www.timesargus.com/article/20100221/NE...
MONTPELIER — When Paul Blanch heard that the Vermont Legislature would take one more day of testimony before voting on the future of its nuclear power plant, the West Hartford, Conn., resident jumped into his car and drove to the Green Mountain State.Blanch, a retired nuclear engineer with more than 40 years of experience in the field, made the 200 mile drive on his own dime.
"I'm not here representing anyone," Blanch said.
"I'm also not anti-nuclear. I consider myself a proponent of safe nuclear power.
"Vermont Yankee, Blanch contends, is not safe nuclear power.

In 1988, Blanch became a nuclear power whistleblower when he told the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that his employer, Millstone Nuclear Power Plant in Connecticut, was experiencing major malfunctions with a piece of safety equipment.
It wasn't just that plant; the problem was industry-wide.
He's worked mostly as a consultant since then, including for the state of New York, but the experience changed his mind about the effectiveness of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and its close relationship to the private energy companies that own many of the industry's nuclear power plants.

The engineers also say that both the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Homeland Security "have been aware of these potential threats for years and have as yet failed to determine whether any action is needed to prevent or deter these events."

Former Whistle-Blower Making Headlines Again
"Just seeing and listening to all those senators, I've never seen such an outrage against a company," Blanch said.
The senators agreed with Blanch's contention that Entergy does not properly maintain buried pipes and the company can't be trusted to stop leaks of low-level radioactive water from those pipes.
Ten years ago, Blanch did consulting work for Entergy, which also owns Indian Point, in Westchester County in New York.
Now, he's getting paid to investigate the company's problems by the New York attorney general.
He was not paid for his Vermont presentation in February."
Indian Point is probably the most dangerous plant in the country," he said during a recent interview in his West Hartford home.

"Mr. Blanch is a Registered Professional Engineer in California. In 1972 he received a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Hartford in Connecticut, where he also took graduate courses in Engineering."

That was the first link that came up in my search. Learn to Google dumb ass.

It figures why ewe would not include the rest of that description of him from that same link-
"an engineer, manager, and project coordinator for the construction and operations of nuclear power plants"
(that's considerably More than a mere Electrical Engineer)
from ewe'r link it says Blanch is--->
"an engineer who has consulted for nuclear power plants and their safety and Blanch has more than 40 years of consulting experience with the top management of companies such as Northeast Utilities, Dominion Nuclear, Millstone Power Station, Indian Point Nuclear Power Station, and Maine Yankee Atomic Power Company.
He also has distinguished career as an engineer, manager, and project coordinator for the construction and operations of nuclear power plants.

As an expert witness, Blanch provided research and testimony for several plaintiffs including Three Mile Island, Vermont Yankee, Saint Lucie, Millstone, and Davis Besse.

Blanch provided testimony before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on protection for nuclear industry employees and developed computer research tools and programs to access, search, and analyze publicly available documents from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Since April 2007 Blanch has been a consultant to the State of New York Office of the Attorney General where he provides services related to the license renewal application for Indian Point Units 2 & 3, ensuring compliance with the existing NRC requirements and the Aging Management Programs to assure continued safe operation of the plants should the license renewal be granted.

//////////
All the other newspapers reported that he's been a nuclear engineer and the Hartford Courant pointed out that he consulted for nuke plant owners including ENTERGY.
If what ewe claim was true then that would mean Blanch misrepresented himself not only to the NY State ATT. Gen. but also to U.S. Senators when he testified to Congress AND to companies he worked for AS an engineer in the nuclear field, such as ENTERGY.
If he did then ENTERGY would have raised a big stink about him not being legit when he went to testify against their nuke plants being unreliable and lacking in safety etc., but Entergy did not because he IS legit, that's why Entergy previously hired him!
EWE are the one who is illegitimate, a fraud and liar!

For someone who has seemed to have a vested interest in nukedom and VY etc., now after people across the World having to put up with so much dishonesty and cover-ups over the years from those in the nuclear business, don't ewe even care that ewe'r adding further harm to the image of the industry?
So I ask again-
Are ewe still contending that Arnie Gundersen hasn't been a nuke engineer either?
How about A. Stanley Thompson and John Gofman?
And that low level radiation hasn't been proven to cause cancers when it has?
The LA Times now reports that More tuna off SoCal has tested positive for cesium-134 and cesium-37 which scientists say are waste products from Fukushima- Do ewe deny that too?

How about Frank N. von Hippel who was quoted in the NY Times as ALSO saying just like Blanch and Gundersen etc. that Fukushimas can very easily happen here'-- ewe wanna claim that he isn't a Nuclear physicist as reported?

So what ewe'r saying is that ALL those who were of the belief that Blanch has had experience as a NUCLEAR ENGINEER were fooled and/or 'too stupid to realize' that he was billing himself as something he was not, and that would include major media outlets as well as the State of NY and US Senators and nuclear plant owners such as ENTERGY.
Surely all those who were fooled like that nuke plant company would love to know what ewe claim is the case- Go tell em!

None of this chatter is relevant. VY's right to operate will be reaffirmed by the courts. Once their profitable plants are safe from state shutdown threats, they will close VY. That will end the chapter of safe, clean and reliable nuclear power generation in Vermont. Vermont will continue to contract with Seabrook station indefinitely.

No, what I'm saying is that Blanch is an electrical engineer, not a nuclear engineer. Are you really that stupid?

unlike ewe, I have plenty of company in believing what ewe call 'stupid', such as Congress and other federal and State govt. officials and all the newspapers, and nuke plant owners like ENTERGY which also had No problem with Blanch being billed as a Nuclear Engineer and EXPERT Consultant on nuclear plant engineering issues, which is what ENTERGY and other nuke owners HIRED him for.

A nuclear expert like Blanch turns whistleblower, blowing the whistle on f*ed-up nuke plants and their major safety problems and unreliability and what do ewe do?
ATTACK THE MESSENGER, cuz ewe can't debunk the message
Ewe Lose

But unfortunatley, when ewe'r beloved nukes go kabloooey, we all lose
/////////
So is Arnie Gundersen also not a nuclear engineer?
Ewe apparently gave up trying to attack his credibility

ENE news was another that ewe'v attacked as being wrong but would not/could not debunk...

'Fukushima Thyroid Cancers Skyrocketing Now'- Vid
ENEnews.com/corbett-report-thyroid-cancers-sk...
ENE's source for that is the London Guardian which got their info from the Japanese
^"As of February 2013, Japan has tested 133,000 children in Fukushima and found abnormal thyroid cysts and nodules in 42% of them. Three cases of cancer were confirmed and another seven were suspected cases “with an 80% chance of malignancy”. The issue is bound to escalate further."

(and nuketard denials are bound to escalate further as well--pffffffffffffttt!)

http://enenews.com/tv-us-nuclear-plants-very-...
If you do not know the difference between a Nuclear Engineer and an engineer that works at a nuclear power plant, then you are an idiot.

Nuclear engineers have been schooled on reactor physics, while electrical/mechanical/chemical engineers are schooled on their specific fields. These other engineers do not fully understand reactor theory/core design/radiochemistry. Actually, most non nuclear engineers have very little knowledge of what occurs in the reactor of a nuclear power plant.

So, when a nuclear engineer says that VY cannot melt down like Chernobyl, he is correct. Fukushima did not melt down like Chernobyl.

This might as well by the underground/buried pipe discussion. THE meaning of words is very important. Not your meaning for words.

In their presentation I remember they made Both points,
that VY's GE Mark I could not melt down LIKE Chernoybl did (different design altogether)
And
they said that for VY to melt down at all was relatively impossible- they defininitely conveyed the notion that there's no legitimate reason to think that VY could go kablooey in any big way and make the entire tri-State region uninhabitable for many years. Then we saw THREE GE Mark I's go kablooey in Fukushima, and JUST LIKE WITH CHERNOBYL a Huge region is now also uninhabitable for many years
"THE meaning of words is very important. Not your meaning for words"
- then ewe explain please what's THE meaning of 42%(and growing) of the kids having thyroid cysts
And is there a 'remediation' for that?
Ewe disagree with the term 'uninhabitable' or do ewe want to contend like Ann Coulter and some nuke 'expert' that 'she'(it) beLIEved that the extra radiation in the ground and food and water etc. around Fukushima "is good for ewe" ?
/\/\/
"Actually, most non nuclear engineers have very little knowledge of what occurs in the reactor of a nuclear power plant."
-but ewe know damn well that would not include Blanch!
From that Courant article:
"The senators agreed with Blanch's contention that Entergy does not properly maintain buried pipes and the company can't be trusted to stop leaks of low-level radioactive water from those pipes."
-Ha! those stupid senators failed to check him out, they would have found out that he's a fraud!
I googled and found NO record of Blanch ever having a Plumbers License, therefore he has no business talking about any pipe leaks at all
(ewe'r Stupid logic! ppfffffttt)
Everybody involved in the operation and safety (Huge part of it) of a nuke has to be a specialist,
Many of the older guys like Blanch EARNED their 'Engineer' title on the job over years of hands on experiece, he started in the Navy running/operating a nuke and has 40+ years working inside and planning of various reactors.
The Bratt Commons article says:
"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."
Instead of 'See no evil' watchmen/overseers in the pocket of the industry or rubberstamping NRC 'officials' pretending to care about our safety with nukes, I'd much rather have a guy like that helping out in looking over the nuke plants and their safety and trying to keep the NRC & Nuke Industry from being too cozy. He's been trusted by the industry because he's not anti-nuke, but he is rightfully distrusting of them all since as an insider he knows all about how much sh't goes on and gets screwed up and Covered-Up with our aging deteriorating leaking parts-problematic Human Error-problematic dirty bombs AKA nuke plants
I don't shivagit if he doesn't understand all the technicalities of new advanced reactor theory!
Ewe nukenuts just hate insiders-turned truther/whisleblowers

Oh right the Denial one ewe'r ilk peed in

Scientist: Entergy denial of Strontium-90 releases is “galling” http://vtdigger.org/2011/08/11/strontium-90-f...

David Lochbaum, director of the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Nuclear Safety Project, called the absolute denial “galling,” in light of Entergy’s own reported emissions of the radionuclide to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

“By its [Entergy’s] own admission, it [Vermont Yankee] is releasing strontium-90 into the environment” and therefore cannot rule itself out of the fish equation, Lochbaum said.

so ewe go ahead and attack this Lochbaum's credibility and expertice
