The Environmental Enemies of Energy

Oct 31, 2013 Full story: The Heartland Institute 11

While Americans grapple with the Obamacare debacle and 90 million are officially unemployed according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is another threat to our future as environmental groups like the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth continue their assault on the provision of electrical energy, the lifeblood of the nation's economy and ...

More Heartland Mental Institute hogwash. Demanding CLEAN and SAFE energy isn't the same as rejecting energy need or jobs. This 'false dichotomy' is just another example of the midless propaganda of Coal and Oil companies fighting to retain their MONOPOLY on energy and the political power it gives them.

One slip-up in the latest step to decommission Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant could trigger a "monumental" chain reaction, experts warn.

Within days, Fukushima nuclear plant operators will begin what is being described as the most dangerous phase of the decommissioning process so far.

In an operation never before attempted, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) will start removing 1,331 highly radioactive used fuel assemblies from a deep pool which sits high above the ground in a shattered reactor building.

The Fukushima nuclear plant's reactors were sent into meltdown by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 in the world's worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

Experts around the world have warned ever since that the fuel pool is in a precarious state - vulnerable to collapsing in another big earthquake.

Yale University professor Charles Perrow wrote about the number 4 fuel pool this year in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.

He said one pool contains 10 times the amount of radioactive caesium present in the Chernobyl disaster and warned one slip-up with the removal could trigger a chain reaction.

"This has me very scared," he told the ABC.

"Tokyo would have to be evacuated because [the] caesium and other poisons that are there will spread very rapidly.

"Even if the wind is blowing in the other way, it's going to be monumental."[from ABC NEWS][yesterday]

I read about a case where a guy was killed in a roller coaster accident one time. I guess based on that, we ought to go out and dismantle the world's roller coasters.

The experts cited are all experts in fer-mongering. Ignore them. Save yourself some stress.

You should have written:
A guy was killed in a roller coaster accident. He was not killed more than one time in a roller coaster accident. You didn't need to say you read his story. You didn't have to say it was a case. In truth, you don't have to write anything.

Keep breathing deep....... very deep, till you can't.  Yes, without environmentalists, you would have died sooner, but the rich man you worked for would have been richer.
