NS (Nuclear Ship) Savannah, First Commercial Nuclear-Powered Cargo Vessel, Designed And Used To Dump Liquid Nuclear Waste Into Ocean

In Rosyth Dockyard, Fife, Scotland, are the decommissioned nuclear submarines of the Royal Navy.  Dreadnought, the four Polaris nuclear missile submarines, Conqueror and Vanguard, surrounded by barbed wire and regularly monitored.  That was some time ago and there may be more now in the basin, slowly rotting away, with the nuclear reactors still intact inside them.  They need to be kept in the water, to keep the nuclear reactors cool, as they still produce heat.  I have no idea, what radioactivity goes into the basin, then the Forth from these hulks.  They have been sitting there for decades and yet, the UK Government wants to built more nuclear submarines?  Even the so-called peacenik Jeremy Corbyn, wants to renew the Trident nuclear ballistic missile submarine fleet!  When will this stupidity ever end?

Unfinished business at the conclusion of the Brexit bill

The fact, that NGO’s and some parliamentarians had to fight, to achieve so little, in the way of environmental protection. Is a clear indication, the UK is NOT leading on environmental issues or climate change.

New Study of US-UK-French Nuclear Workers Supports Linear No Threshold Model – Radiation is Bad for You: Increased Dose is Increased Risk; “Hormesis” Debunked; Funding from Pro-Nuclear Govts-Nuclear Industry

Nuclear is not safe, this is a study of workers who are afforded some measure of protection, not the general public who are exposed to the continues leaks from nuclear facilities.

Mining Awareness +

Update-clarification of the study below found here: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2015/12/19/another-look-at-the-recent-low-dose-radiation-exposure-study-inworks/

Just in time to debunk the US NRC proposal for increasing radiation exposure to the general population from 0.25 mSv (EPA) to 100 mSv: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=NRC-2015-0057 (Comment Deadline Nov. 19th) is a new study of nuclear workers exposed to cumulative doses with a median average (half-above, half-below) of 4.1 mSv, and an overall arithmetic average (mean) of 20.9 mSv: “Results suggest a linear increase in the rate of cancer with increasing radiation exposure. The average cumulative colon dose estimated among exposed workers was 20.9 mGy (median 4.1 mGy). The estimated rate of mortality from all cancers excluding leukaemia increased with cumulative dose by 48% per Gy (90% confidence interval 20% to 79%), lagged by 10 years“. (See Richardson et. al. below). One Gy is 1000 mSv, in the context of this study, or 10 years worth of the US NRC 100…

Gorgon releases millions of tonnes of C02 into the atmosphere. #CCS #auspol #wapol #ClimateChange

Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS), a false solution, an attempt by the fossil fuel industry and the rich, to continue with business as usual. We need to stop burning fossil fuels, to stop catastrophic climate change, destroying human live. This means the rich need to cut back on their excessive consumption and an increase in energy efficiency.

Probe after Gorgon releases millions of tonnes of greenhouse gas

Emma Young10 May 2018 — 1:29pm

The Gorgon Gas project off WA’s north-west coast has released millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere instead of injecting it underground as environmental approvals required, because of technical problems with its gas injection system.

The conditions stated that Chevron had to “implement all practicable means” to reinject all carbon dioxide removed during gas processing into deep aquifers below the island.

The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project. off WA’s coast.

The minimum requirement was 80 percent, calculated on a five-year rolling average. If the amount fell significantly below 80 per cent Chevron had to report this and take steps to “offset” these emissions.

The Barrow Island operation had still not yet injected any carbon dioxide underground, West Australian Environment Minister Stephen Dawson confirmed in Parliament on Tuesday in response to a question from…

Leaked Papers Reveal White House Planning ‘Regime Change’ in Iran

Someone posted recently, that the USA, along with Israel, having been planning to engage Iran in warfare. As well as their continuous attempts to bring about regime change, just as they did in Iraq and Libya. https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/trumps-pull-out-nuclear-deal-planned-path-to-persia-war-iran.html

AGR Daily 60 Second News Bites

Just a few days after the former NYC mayor and latest member of President Trump’s unexpectedly let it slip that “we got a president who is tough, who does not listen to the people who are naysayers, and a president who is committed to regime change [in Iran]”, the Washington Free Beacon has obtained a three-page white paper being circulated among National Security Council officials with drafted plans to spark regime change in Iran, following the US exit from the Obama-era nuclear deal and the re-imposition of tough sanctions aimed at toppling the Iranian regime.

The plan, authored by the Security Studies Group, or SSG, a national security think-tank that has close ties to senior White House national security officials, including – who else – National Security Adviser John Bolton, seeks to reshape longstanding American foreign policy toward Iran by emphasizing an explicit policy of regime change, something the Obama administration opposed when popular protests gripped Iran in 2009…

A Zionist helpfully explains why I am “the wrong kind of Jew”

TheCritique Archives

by Martin Odoni

I have received a comment on the article I put up yesterday. I am unsure whether the person who posted it – an Israeli Jew and presumably a Zionist – was aware of the irony, but in posting it, he demonstrated precisely the point the article was making.

NB: I considered concealing the name of the commenter from this screenshot, but then I thought, “What would be the point? He was happy singing out his name when making the comment in the first place, and he hardly deserves his privacy to be protected anyway.”

zionist malice

(Where Jacobs says “he”, he means Jeremy Corbyn.) The Jews to which Jacobs refers were the group ‘Jewdas’ and the fact that he put speech marks around the word “jews” shows that he cannot tolerate the idea that ‘Jewdas’ are Jewish people at all. They are “the wrong kind of Jew”.

Then, there…

Has the UK really been held back by the EU on waste and resources?

As some one who worked on a waste incinerator. The UK was keen to promote incineration, as a means to divert waste from landfill. In doing so, it weakened EU directives on emissions control, whilst the Environment Agency, turned a blind eye to environmental infringements by those operating waste incinerators.
Basically, in this country, things are built as cheaply as possible, at times avoiding Best Available Technology, using the minimum of poorly trained staff, whilst blaming the EU for the poor outcomes.
