Without government subsidies the nuclear industry would not exist. The nuclear industry enjoys the unique position of unlimited state subsidies, socialist largesse to the unfettered, irresponsible capitalist free market. The same criminals who supplied Tepco have been allowed to get off scot free and have set up shop in the UK. http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/C-Westinghouse_assumes_management_of_UK_fuel_plant-2503105.html
TEPCO’s “profits” will be based on restart of a nuclear plant, worker layoffs, and taxpayer (“government”) subsidy:
“Tepco submits new business plan to government, seeks more funds

TOKYO, Dec 27 (Reuters) – The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant submitted a revised business plan to the government on Friday aimed at securing steady profit with the restart of its undamaged Kashiwazaki Kariwa nuclear plant in July“. Entire Reuters Article is here: http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/basicmaterialsNews/~3/PClzKte7OUU/japan-nuclear-idUSL3N0K61EV20131227

This is where one REALLY sees what fascism is about. If one looks at historical evidence (e.g. companies which used slave labour) and/or read Daniel Guerin’s “Fascism and Big Business“, it becomes clear that fascism was essentially about subsidies to heavy…

The beloved Christmas Robin is under threat from nuclear cheerleaders such as George Monbiot. Even Sellafield’s Compensation Scehme for Radiation Linked Diseases recognises that cataracts are caused by radiation. Research shows that birds in nuclear contaminated areas are becoming blinded by cataracts. A bird’s eyesight is essential as are cognitive abilities which are also impaired by exposure to man made radiation. A Christmas Wish ….STOP NUCLEAR MADNESS……*NOW*

Very sad. Bird eyes with cataracts:

From: Mousseau TA, Møller AP (2013) “Elevated Frequency of Cataracts in Birds from Chernobyl” http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0066939
Lucky for us some few are still doing serious academic research. If animals can’t see well, with some exceptions, they can’t find food and die, or can more easily be killed by predators. The frequency and severity of cataracts increases with background radiation. In the abstract below “reduced fitness” means they are unfit for survival! Overall, increasing radiation was related to fewer birds, suggesting “effects of radiation on other diseases, food abundance and interactions with other species. There was no increase in incidence of cataracts with increasing age…”. Cataracts in humans at Chernobyl and elsewhere are also discussed:

Beautifully mind blowing…every snow flake that falls to earth is unique, made up only of hydrogen and oxygen, let’s keep them that way….perfect H20 molecules rather than H30 Tritium molecules. courtesy of nuclear madness. H20 is without doubt the most amazing stuff.
Alexey Kljatov (aka ChaoticMind75) is an artist and photographer from Moscow, Russia. In an ongoing series entitled Snowflakes and snow crystals, Alexey takes macro shots of natural snowflakes, snow and hoarfrost crystals right outside of his house.
In a detailed blog post Kljatov explains that he shoots with a Canon A650 with a custom-built macro add-on for the camera: a Helios 44M-5 from an old USSR SLR camera called a Zenit. The images seen below were shot on dark woollen fabric in natural light (typically a grey cloudy sky).
These are only 10 in a series of 67, which you can see in its entirety on Flickr. It’s fascinating to see the numerous varieties of snowflakes. From simple prisms, sectored plates and stellar dendrites; to capped columns and triangular crystals, no two snowflakes are quite the same.
You can find a great list with pictures of different…

Congratulations to all who have campaigned hard and long to save Keekle Head from becoming a nuclear dumping ground for the top end of low level nuclear wastes. Campaigners against the nuclearisation of Keekle Head included pronuclear councillors and even the Copeland MP Jamie Reed. The same people who are bizarrely campaigning FOR the infinitely …

If Cumbrians continue to oppose a geological nuclear dump under their beautiful land, Lord O'Neill, celebrated member of the Humanist Society advocates a more "aggressive" approach.
