Problems at the San Onofre nuclear power plant in the U.S. brings an awareness once again of the dangers of radiation. It has brought to light the deadly pacific flow, of Fukushima contaminated waters rushing toward the west coast.
On Feb.of 2012 Joanne Faryon of KPBS news sat down with Murray Jennex, an associate professor at SDSU's Homeland Security Program and former spokesman for the plant for a discussion of a permanent closure.
Nuclear Hotseat, a weekly podcast hosted and produced by Libbe HaLevy on April 24, 2012 sat down with Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds.com for an exclusive interview to discuss the disastrous problems unfolding at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant, and the dangers of nuclear power present in our daily lives.
Personal conflicts within the inner circle of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission seem to be having an effect on the production of the organization.. Problems have escalated between Chairman Gregory Jaczko and Kristine Svinicki another commissioner on the board. Chairman Jaczko wants some changes that do not sit well with the big corporations, which may be the reason for this to make the news.
Chairman Jaczko wants end the “Get out of jail free” cards for fire code violations potentially affecting the safe shutdown of reactors during a fire. During the early weeks of the Fukushima accident, it was Chairman Jaczko who urged Americans in Japan to evacuate to 50 miles away from the disaster, even though the U.S. standard is 10 miles. Jaczko might want more truth exposed about the real problems of nuclear power plants in the USA. Many are disasters waiting to happen, while people go about daily life clueless of their surroundings.
Kristine Svinicki, former staff member of of the Bush administration, was nominated to be a member of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2007. Tension that has surfaced amongst Commissioner Syinicki and Chairman Jaczako, now public seems to be holding up the nomination of Ms. Syinicki.
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing entitled, "The Leadership of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission" on December 14, 2011. This happened after four commissioners wrote letters to the White House about internal problems, and concerns the NRC was risking the safety of the public over personal problems. A hearing was scheduled, for these issues to be addressed.
Reuters reported the White House announced on Thursday, that Syinicki would be renominated. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid opposes the decision for Syinicki's return to the panel, because of her close connections to the industry she regulates. Is it the concern for the public, or just filling a slot with one that knows the rules, and won't need retraining?
Where was the NRC when according to Alexander Higgins April 24, 2012, reveals a system of broken and unmaintained EPA RadNet radiation monitors. The EPA continues to report radiation safety levels are normal.
The reports on the EPA website have come up against the scrutiny of protesters, who believe the truth isn't being reported. Radiation problems especially from Fukushima continue to be a growing concern in marine life. A report published by Alexander Higgins in March of 2012, an increasing number of Japanese fishery products exported to the country, including Alaskan fish, were found to be contaminated with radioactive materials.
Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant continues leaking radiated groundwater into the ocean, threatening to destroy the aquatic balance of earths waters. According to a news report by Common Dreams 12 tons of radiated water that has leaked out of the plant in recent days has gone into the ocean. According to Energy News, rumors have been swing about dead fetuses in mothers stomachs, which cannot be confirmed is being caused by radiation.
Hawaii will be the first state in the United States to feel the impact of the radiated water from Fukushima. ASR has been tracking the radiation and debris moving toward the west coast, many are predicting could be a matter of months. Is the U.S. preparing for this event?
Alex Jones reports on the Army stockpiling anti-radiation pills, and how this news is being kept quiet. Why?
When the radiated waters from Fukushima hit the west coast like the debris that is washing up now, masses will awaken, realizing they have been lied to for a long time.
Violence will erupt as the radiated waters of truth wash onto the western shores of the U.S. Beaches where millions have been swimming not knowing if there is something in the water that may be harmful to their health. People are going to get sick, angry, and violence from those who may lose loved ones will escalate. If this occurs martial law will be enacted by the president under the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act.) RT America reports the consequences to every American citizen, in the world.
Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of ammo, that no one from government has stepped up to give the purpose of such a large order of weapons by an organization who primary purpose is the citizens of the U.S..
S510 another bill most Americans seem to unaware of a law that helps to strip more of their freedom away. It allows the "Department of Homeland Security" the right to seize any property, and food in case of an emergency. RT America dubs the S510 bill "Farmageddon." Natural News in September 2011 suggest the purpose for what bill S510 is designed for as another form of control over what people eat, grow, and share. As Fukushima grows worse, more corporations continue to use this planet as a waste dump for greed, destruction, NDAA, SOPA and the continued search for power, which moves on to food.
Many think that the carelessness of government will be the cause of whatever disaster that will come next. On Doomsday Bunkers the newest craze on television with stories of people preparing for anything. Change is happening. Having at least a six month supply of food, water, and medical supply would be a wise decision in these times of uncertainty.
