NUKE POWER IN NEW YORK hopefully on its way out….
We talk about making New York state NUKEFREE with the great ARNIE GUNDERSEN, one of the world’s top technical experts on atomic reactors; JESSICA AZULAY of the movement to shut down the FITZPATRICK and GINNA reactors in upstate NY; GARY SHAW at INDIAN POINT; and TIM JUDSON of the NUCLEAR INFORMATION & RESOURCE SERVICE.
On the brink of an expected announcement from ENTERGY on Fitzpatrick, we run the gamut of insanity at these atomic disasters in progress, including the two far upstate at NINE MILE POINT, Unit One being one the the 3 oldest in the world.
At Indian Point2 the license is expired, as it’s about to at Unit3. Ginna and Fitzpatrick are losing money. Nine Mile Point is crumbling. The state government is working for shutdown.
Tune in to find out how we can finally get over the line and make these New York nightmares go cold.
This is an opportunity to see how my intuition can be of help to you. I'll spend a few minutes with each person and you'll be amazed at how much I can tell you about your situation in that short time.
I can answer questions about a lot of different things from family issues to health to work issues as so much of the information doesn't come from my own brain but rather from a higher consciousness.
Many of you have been students or clients in the past so you already know how I work. It's a half hour show and I'd love to hear from you.
Deciding we want to commit to the spiritual path is easy, but it can be harder to live up to our commitment. At the first sign of trouble, we could easily depart the path in favor of a lifestyle that doesn’t challenge us as much, but if we do, we’ll miss out on all of the incredible things the path has for us. We’ll miss out on spiritual evolution and the wonders that come with it, and we’ll eventually realize we’ve taken a wrong turn. We might try to steer our ship in a more positive direction by then, but we would’ve been much further along the path if we hadn’t stopped in the first place. Read
On today's show, Kathryn introduced the program and gave a summary of the program’s topic: “The Art of Imperfection” and the “Truth of Divinity.” Kathryn offered discourse on “The Art of Imperfection” as a means of achieving full state of self acceptance and true love. Kathryn re-introduced the program and offered discourse on the topic: “Truth of Divinity.” Kathryn made a few comments about energy healing and offer some announcements.
Obama has made nuclear energy a centerpiece of his climate push. In reality, nuclear is NOT a low-carbon source of energy … and funding nuclear crowds out the development of better sources of alternative energy. Mark Jacobson – the head of Stanford University’s Atmosphere and Energy Program, who has written numerous books and hundreds of scientific papers on climate and energy, and testified before Congress numerous times on those issues – notes that nuclear puts out much more pollution (including much more CO2) than windpower, and 1.5% of all the nuclear plants built have melted down. Jacobson alsopoints out that it takes at least 11 years to permit and build a nuclear plant, whereas it takes less than half that time to fire up a wind or solar farm. Between the application for a nuclear plant and flipping the switch, power is provided by conventional energy sources … currently 55-65% coal. Read
Marc Allen is my guest who has written the book “Tantra for the West“. It’s a wonderful book to help live in the deeper truths of life. It’s a lot easier when you have greater awareness and tools to handle life’s challenges and be able to make better choices. This interview can really help travel through life better.
Project Censored Show host Mickey Huff covers The Myth of Clean and Safe Nuclear Technologies-- Holding the Nuclear Industry Responsible for Environmental Contamination and Human Disease. The show begins in discussion with Choi Seungkoo, Secretary General of the NNAA (No Nukes Asia Actions) and activist Rev. Daesoo Lee, they discuss recent international lawsuits andcompensation for cancer victims created by nuclear power plants and the dangers of nuclear technology past to present...they are currently touring in the US to raise awareness about this growing global affair; at the bottom of the hour, author and professor Karl Grossman discusses the many dangers of nuclear power in the US from nuclear weapons to NASA, and from the weaponization of space to power plants built on fault lines near major cities…join us for an hour on the perils of nuclear technology, who is responsible, and what we can do about it...from Fukushima to Indian Point and beyond.
In what is being called the most definitive assessment yet of national emissions pledges aimed at meeting global climate goals, the International Energy Agency on Monday released a major report showing that without “learning to live within its means,” the world is set to miss a critical target. In its World Energy Outlook Special Report 2015: Energy and Climate Change (pdf), the Paris-based agency states that current national commitments to cut greenhouse gases are still insufficient to keep the world below two degrees Celsius of warming above pre-industrial levels. That generally accepted target, beyond which climate change is likely to become catastrophic and irreversible, was reaffirmed by G7 leaders in Bonn last week. “The world must quickly learn to live within its means if this generation is to pass it on to the next with a clear conscience.” —International Energy Agency However, the IEA’s assessment of “known and signaled national climate pledges for COP21″—the detailed plans submitted ahead of this December’s meeting where it is hoped that 196 countries will agree upon new global emissions reductions—found that without stronger action, emissions will continue to rise until at least 2030, putting the 2°C target out of reach. It doesn’t have to be this way. To meet the target, the agency
Converting the world’s entire energy infrastructure to run on clean, renewable energy could effectively fight ongoing climate change, eliminate air pollution deaths, create jobs, and stabilize energy prices. The challenge is a daunting one. But scientists say it’s possible. Researchers are the first to outline the 50 individual state plans that call for aggressive changes to both infrastructure and the ways we currently consume energy, but indicate that the conversion is technically and economically possible through wide-scale implementation of existing technologies. “The main barriers are social, political, and getting industries to change,” says Mark Z. Jacobson, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University. “One way to overcome the barriers is to inform people about what is possible. By showing that it’s technologically and economically possible, this study could reduce the barriers to a large scale transformation.” ENERGY DEMANDS Researchers started by taking a close look at the current energy demands of each state, and how those demands would change under business-as-usual conditions by the year 2050. To create a full picture of energy use in each state, they examined energy usage in four sectors: residential, commercial, industrial, and transportation. Read
Wired put together a very interesting piece on the renewable energy company Vortex. They are now field testing bladeless wind energy turbines. Instead of capturing energy via the circular motion of a propeller, the Vortex takes advantage of what’s known as vorticity, an aerodynamic effect that produces a pattern of spinning vortices. Vorticity has long been considered the enemy of architects and engineers, who actively try to design their way around these whirlpools of wind. And for good reason: With enough wind, vorticity can lead to an oscillating motion in structures, which, in some cases, like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, can cause their eventual collapse Using the energy created by the oscillation in structures has been covered on Daily Kos long before I came here. As with previous iterations of minimal moving parts and gearless wind turbines, the Vortex version may offer up a variety of advances to wind technology that arenot possible with today’s wind turbines. Its makers boast the fact that there are no gears, bolts, or mechanically moving parts, which they say makes the Vortex cheaper to manufacture and maintain. The founders claim their Vortex Mini, which stands at around 41 feet tall, can capture up to 40 percent of the
