NUCLEAR POWER 101

AN ATOMIC BOMB TO STOP THE GULF OIL LEAK (?)
Top Kill failed to halt the Gulf oil leak. Relief wells are being prepared, but the government is already looking at the possibility of using nuclear bombs on the leak. Crazy? Maybe, but this wouldn't be the first time for such an approach, as this Russian nuke-the-leak video shows. We wonder, though, whether 5,000 feet of water or the different geologic characteristics would make a difference. Hmmm....

CATEGORY:  NUCLEAR — 14.APR.2014

Rating: 4 of 5 - Very good TUC Radio

Radiation and Ways to Monitor It — This clip opens with a collage of nuclear tidbits: First we hear the seminal song Radioactivity by Kraftwerk; then a summary of Marie Curie's fascination with, and tragic death from, radioactive substances; then comedian Dick Gregory offering that radiation is worse than hunger and war: “Because I can feel hunger. I can see war... I cannot see radiation. I cannot smell radiation. I cannot hear radiation. I look around one day and I am dead.” ~~ The majority of the clip centers on Geiger counter builder Dan Sythe and the SafeCast network that has been set up to monitor Fukushima radiation.

GP comment:  I rail against stupid, insensitive humans quite a bit. Here we get to hear about some humans that are quite the opposite.

Rating: 4 of 5 - Very good TUC Radio

Testing the Waters (for Fukushima Radioactivity) — Three years after Fukushima, the ocean currents are finally bringing the first of that accident's radioactive releases via the ocean currents to the shores of the US and Canadian west coasts. One would think that agencies like NOAA, EPA, NIST, or even the NRC would see it as a priority to monitor the situation. All have declined, stating that this is not their responsibility. Because of that leadership vacuum, volunteers have stepped into the breach, becoming a network of measurement takers—a combination of crowd sourcing and academic work.

GP comment:  Ingestion of radioactive particles—as might happen if contaminated Pacific fish are consumed—is the big issue.

Original Show Pub Date: 26.Mar.2014

CATEGORY:  NUCLEAR — 01.APR.2014

Rating: 4 of 5 - Very good Political Analysis

The Myth of Nuclear Security — Anti-nuclear activist Chuck McCune talks about various nuclear safety issues, as well as the flaws and vulnerabilities of nuclear power.

GP comment:  The NRC should just admit that it's first priority is to protect industry profits.
