Also see Dr. Miller’s ‘Nuclear Power Is Green’ ???? youtube video at
with a New Zealand wave at the end of the video, with some hot music.
Dr. Miller’s third edition of The Most Important Issues
Americans THINK They Know Enough About will be available
this spring with a new chapter on ‘Bush’s Nuclear Push’
and an expanded chapter on radioactive wastes, especially
concerning the 20,000 TONS of radioactive waste Italy
wants to export to the USA that will be distributed/disposed of via
EnergySolutions corporation. Initially it will be received
in Tennessee, and re-classified, perhaps incinerated at some
‘thermal’ facility. But incineration does not burn
away radioactivity unfortunately; no, it just disperses it
all around with the sparks and the ash. Then we can breathe
it in, and maybe get our kids cancer. Or it will end up on
our crops, in our food, amidst the dust on our bureaus and
night tables, and be radioactive for tens and hundreds and
thousands of years.
There also may be a new book emerging out of the above 2 chapters
called ‘Nuclear is Green, Baloney is Blue’
Because nuclear waste is the product of nuclear power, and despite
all the Christy Todd Whitmans and Thomas Friedmans spreading
the frivolous baloney that nuclear is green, there is nothing
more toxic for a longer period of time than radioactive waste.
The only kind of ‘green’ nuclear power is, is radioactive cancer-causing
environmentally-polluting-essentially-forever radioactive green.
Plutonium can kill you with a millionth of a gram of it lodging
in your lung long enough to start up a cancer there.
With 454 grams equaling one pound, that means that one pound of
plutonium, as an example, can produce cancer in 454 MILLION people.
And 20 pounds theoretically can kill everyone on Earth with this
disease. Plus, plutonium-239 has a ‘hazardous life’ during which we
have to worry about its radioactive toxicity and ability to cause
us and our loved ones cancer for 240,000 to 480,000 years.
And plutonium-239 is just ONE of over 500 radionuclides that can
cause cancer and mutations and lead to spontaneous abortions
of genetically damaged fetuses, that are produced in each nuclear
power plant every day, in all 104 of our such nuclear plants.
But then there is wind power and solar power.
We have 18% of our electricity generated by nuclear power today.
Denmark has 20% of its electricity generated by wind power today.
Germany is phasing out nuclear power (as are Austria and Belgium),
because Germany leads the world in wind power. Plus, they are fast
acquiring and constructing solar power and photovoltaic energy
systems, while the USA listens to George Bush and Dick Cheney,
trying to be more and more nucular.
Germany has over 20,000 megawatts worth of wind power. And they are
adding more than 1000 megawatts every year in increasing amounts.
But the USA has been called the Persian Gulf of Wind! Because we
have enough wind according to the Department of Energy to generate
two thirds of all the electricity the USA needs in just the two states
of North and South Dakota! Texas could provide the other needed third.
