“Fear is a government’s greatest weapon. With it, they can convince a people that they need to abandon their freedom. In exchange, they get safety. Of course, you just trade one monster for another, but by the time the people realize this, it is too late.” --Victor Methos
They don’t have to – as long as people turn off their brains because they don’t think they have the technical know-how to analyze this invisible energy.
twins as usual
The only thing that’s probably true about this story is the building of the concrete monuments and the extraordinary financial fraud required to do so.
With the world’s second-biggest proven reserves of oil, Saudi Arabia seems an unlikely aspirant to the nuclear-energy club. Yet the largest oil exporter plans to build at least 16 nuclear reactors over the next 25 years at a cost of more than $80 billion. The Saudis see atomic energy as a way to ease their dependence on finite fossil fuels. But they are also driven by competition with their rival Iran, which has multiple nuclear facilities. Whatever the motivation, the turn to nuclear power by Saudi Arabia,
Further to our discussion on the phony nuke plant meltdown at Fuck-U-shima, we have this local overlay.
A Fukushima-scale meltdown at the Pickering nuclear power plant would exact a devastating human and economic toll on the province, causing 26,000 cases of cancer — nearly half of them fatal — and the evacuation of 154,000 homes in York and Durham regions and east Toronto. Some areas would be uninhabitable for 100 years. Losses from uninsured housing alone would be in the range of $125 billion.
Well, maybe the physical part is TnT, but the nuclear part is all in the mind.
A very amusing documentary to listen to, if you are convinced that nukes are a hoax.
Funny parts: the missile testing is done near Disneyworld, at Cape Canaveral. No other test launching is done.
The special letter from the British prime minister is held in a safe, which is in a safe, which is in another safe describing what to do if Britain is completely obliterated. I can just imagine the letter is probably one big happy face that says “don’t worry it’s all a joke!“
At that time, my notions of nuclear power stations were utterly idyllic. At school and at the university, we’d been taught that this was a magical factory that made energy out of nothing, where people in white robes sat and pushed buttons.
Nuclear fuel is a the central “core” of the nuclear lie. Here are some pretty poorly created pictures of “meltdown material” from the simulated meltdown at the Fukushima Unclear plant.
The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant said Friday that a long telescopic probe successfully captured images of what is most likely melted fuel inside one of its three damaged reactors, providing limited but crucial information for its cleanup.
I wonder if Georgia taxpayers or a greater group will be victims of this fraud.
The project has become controversial because it is behind schedule and over budget. It will cost over $20 billion, much more than the initial estimate of $14 billion. Yet the new Vogtle units will be a valuable source of reliable, clean, stable and cost-effective electricity for the rest if this century, more than paying for the cost of the overruns.
So wonderful knowing that a bonehead dropping a wrench cannot end the world, but it sure can set off one hell of an explosion. Of course, this entire story maybe fiction, but it nevertheless is fairly dramatic.
Even the best laid plans can go catastrophically wrong when humans get involved. This week, people bungle simple operations on some of the most dangerous weapons in the world.
Nuclear weapons are psychological devices – not radiation devices. Stress can and will kill you long term.
If you beLIEve a WHO study, they tell you the truth about what the sim-weapon is all about.
Psychological fears also show up after radiation accidents. Reporting on the impact of the catastrophic 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster 20 years later, the World Health Organization found more psychological than physical fallout among the local population. “Persistent myths and misperceptions about the threat of radiation have resulted in ‘paralyzing fatalism’ among residents of affected areas,” the report said.
“When there is a chronic elevation of stress, hormones can even kill brain cells, particularly in the hippocampus.”
