NUMNUTZ OF THE WEEK:

I don’t care how you decide to spin it, there ain’t no way nuclear reactors will ever be “aesthetically pleasing.”  Even in England.  Even if that’s what Amber Rudd, the new UK Secretary for Energy and Climate Change, has made as one of her priorities.

PLUS:

  • High alpha radiation in Los Angeles
  • US government emergency preparedness contractor calls Fukushima so fragile that at any moment it could “turn globally catastrophic”;
  • Canada delays its approval of $1B nuke waste dump on shores of Lake Huron until after its elections – wouldn’t want to upset the results, now would we?
  • Radiation Monitoring Project, national initiative to establish monitoring of radioactivity in communities contaminated by the nuclear fuel chain: www.dinenonukes.org.
