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....

Hanford—America's Fukushima — The Hanford Site in south-central Washington state manufactured two-thirds of US plutonium during World War II and the Cold War. During those 40-plus years, a steady stream of industrial and radioactive waste was dumped directly into the surrounding air, the Columbia River, and the grounds of the 586-square-mile reservation. Now, the United States is faced with the largest cleanup in history, with little hope that it will totally succeed. Investigator Paul DeRienzo reports.

Godzilla and the Anti-Nuclear Meme — It's been six decades since Godzilla first hit the screen, and to celebrate the big guy's birthday, Rialto Pictures is releasing a restored version of Ishiro Honda's 1954 original Godzilla film. Critic John Powers discusses the advent of Godzilla in the aftermath of Nagasaki/Hiroshima, the era of American H-bomb tests in the Pacific, and specter of doomed children setting off Geiger counters. ~~ Steve Ryfle is the author of a book about the Honda Godzilla film and the many sequels. He spoke to Fresh Air in 2004, on the film's 50th anniversary.

Rating: 4 of 5 - Very good Green Power And Wellness

Energy Economics—Nuclear Failing, Solar Ascending — Michael Mariotte of the Nuclear Information and Resource Service explains why economics are driving the collapse of the nuclear power industry in Europe, the US, and Japan. No corporation will build a new nuke plant without subsidies. That's because they know the economics of nuclear energy are horrible. At the same time, we are witnessing an astonishing rise of solar energy due to ever-decreasing panel prices. Mariotte points out that it's now cheaper in many parts of the US to add solar to your rooftop than to connect to the grid.

GP comment:  Got a 401K? Turn part of it into rooftop solar for your home. THAT is a diverse investment portfolio.
