Nuclear Power 101
Excellent video with Arnie Gunderson. Thought it was appropriate, as the Fukushima accident may not get much MSM airplay. An article was published about the elevated levels on the Canadian Pacific coast, and still experiences elevated levels, but inland, due to the jet stream rising north.

Will You Trust Your Children's and Grandchildren's Safety to a 60 Year Old Nuclear Reactor
Energy NW operates the only commercial nuclear power plant in the Pacific NW. It is up for license renewal and public hearings need to be held throughout the region, not just in Richland, WA. We need to push for green renewal energy sources, not continuation of dangerous nuclear, and for closure, not relicensing of the Columbia (Nuclear) Generating Station.

In "Anti-Duhring," Frederick Engels explained that nature also has a history and that capitalism tends to destroy its own foundations and nature. The negative is bound to the positive as conservation of energy is bound to transformation of energy. Elmar Altvater is an emeritus professor of political economy at the Free University of Berlin.

Double Victory Against Biomass Incineration!
The spirit of resistance is being kept alive and well in the tradition of
Cascadia's rich history of meeting greed with passion for life. In Olympia,
Washington, Olympia Rising Tide won the campaign against a proposed biomass incinerator planned to be built at the Evergreen State College, and one of two biomass incinerators proposed in Shelton, WA! Our victory shows the effectiveness of collaborative organizing, a diversity of tactics and persistence in the face of corporate power. However, biomass incineration is still a very real threat all over the world, and now is a crucial time to step it up and stop it from destroying our forests, air and health. The tides are beginning to turn, now is the time to fight for climate justice!

Hillary Clinton Flies To Fukushima To Fix Everything
Let me tell you a little secret: Hillary Clinton cannot do shit in Japan. Japan is the third or fourth largest nuclear power (about equal with China) on earth. Not only that; Japan is technologically beyond what most people can imagine. Most importantly, it has the option of siding either with the Eastern Powers or the Western Powers. Nobody can mess with Japan (except China — it gets very tricky here).

The Fukushima "Mass Extinction Event"
I'm just not seeing the Fukushima "mass extinction event" in quite the same way as some others, I'm afraid. Experts agree that the zirconium alloy tubes that hold uranium oxide pellets in plant #1, reactors #1 and #3 have probably overheated and turned into "rust," allowing the pellets to fall to the bottom of their containment vessels, below the boron control rods, and their heat may be destroying the vessel's at their bottoms. (Why didn't GE put control rods at the bottoms?)

The pool of "spent" fuel rods in reactor #3 (comprising many tons of uranium and plutonium oxide) is missing, and presumably just got blown sky-high. There could conceivably be enough plutonium dust in the air to kill everyone on earth now.

TEPCO is keeping the reactor vessels as cool as possible by pumping countless tons of water into them, and is letting the ultra-highly radioactive water drain to the sea. This water will be swept north by the local Black Current (the Pacific's equivalent to the North Atlantic Current) and will travel to Russia, Alaska, California, etc. It could possibly kill everything in the oceans.

There is no real plan (there is an "official plan" now, but it can't be serious) for ending the catastrophe. China, Russia, Korea and others will undoubtedly sue Japan in the International court. But it looks like there conceivably may exist no Japan to sue.
