Radioactive Nuclear Waste in Southern California: Google Maps image of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station‘s radioactive fuel rod storage canisters. Each one contains as much radiation as was released during the Chernobyl accident.
Note the nearness of the Pacific Ocean.
This Week’s Featured Interviews:
- Radioactive nuclear waste and the current lies regarding long-term storage of San Onofre‘s dangerously radioactive spent fuel rods, with Donna Gilmore of San Onofre Safety.
- In a separate but related action, Public Watchdogs has filed an Emergency Petition for a Writ of Mandamus to halt the burial of nuclear waste on the beach at San Onofre because it is:
° In a tsunami inundation zone
° Near a major earthquake fault line
° In “canisters that are damaged, defective, and not properly designed.”

- Dr. Gordon Edwards of the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility, or CCNR, sorts out radiation vs. radioactivity and why it’s so dangerous to life. Here’s a LINK to transcript of Dr. Edwards’ talk.
Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):
Lasers designed for use in machining and eye surgery now proposed as a way to treat highly radioactive nuclear waste! All they have to do is increase the power of the process 10,000 times! But hey, what’s reality when you’ve got a nuclear money-making technology to protect from public scrutiny and panic?

- From last week’s featured guest, Mari Inoue, who introduced us to the Citizens Radiation Data Map of Japan (NH #435, October 22, 2019): The Minna-no Data site (Everyone’s Data Site) is now accepting sludge samples from areas affected by recent flooding after the Typhoon Hagibis, because flood water might have brought radioactive material from areas affected by radioactive fallout after the Fukushima disaster. If you know anyone in Japan who are interested in learning soil radiation level after the recent flooding, please CLICK ON THIS LINK.
- Beyond Nuclear International’s thought-provoking article on why nuclear war needs to be defined by the start of the process, not when bombs go off, is by E. Martin Schotz. An important read: CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK.
